The goal of the firm's Client CultivATion program is to create a client-focused culture, both conceptually and in practice. Katie continues to manage this program, focusing on fostering client relations and retention, and leveraging innovative tools and technology to develop an approach and strategy that adds the most value to client relationships and enhances the services our attorneys perform.
