Kate Letcher is an associate with Nixon Peabody’s Complex Commercial Disputes practice group. She is a courtroom lawyer who represents individuals and entities in a wide variety of matters, including breach of contract, business torts, insurance coverage and defense, and professional liability.
I represent clients from a diverse range of industries in a variety of litigation matters in both state and federal courts. I assist in all phases of litigation, including drafting substantive motions involving motions to dismiss, motions to compel, and motions for summary judgment; drafting complaints, answers, pre-trial filings, and appellate briefs; preparing written discovery requests and responses; preparing and analyzing document productions; appearing and arguing motions in state and federal court; taking and defending party and expert depositions; participating in settlement conferences, and drafting settlement agreements.
My experience in conflict resolution includes representing clients in alternative dispute resolution formats such as mediation and arbitration. I recently served as trial counsel—including handling the closing argument—for a pharmaceutical manufacturer in a complex AAA arbitration involving a dispute with a customer. The arbitrator awarded our client the full amount of its claim, exceeding $2.3 million, as well as a discretionary award of attorneys’ fees and costs.
I am following the evolving policies and laws pertaining to NCAA student athletes’ ability to be paid for their names, images, and likenesses (NIL).
