Katarzyna Murphy

Kat Murphy is an associate in Nixon Peabody’s M&A Corporate Transactions practice group. Kat focuses her practice primarily on corporate, finance, securities and banking law.

What do you focus on?

I counsel companies and financial institutions at all stages of business development, including regulatory compliance, mergers and acquisitions and bank and commercial finance transactions.

I have experience in a wide range of corporate legal matters including mergers and acquisition, secured and unsecured lending transactions and various other bank-related transactions. I have worked closely with in-house counsel across an array of industries, including financial institutions, media, manufacturing, retail and technology. Most recently, I have assisted in the representation of a digital media company with its acquisition of multiple technology companies and websites.

What do you see on the horizon?

Conditions are ideal for growing companies to expand their industry footprint—or enter an adjacent industry—through strategic acquisitions. I believe that sort of business growth will require law firms to be more flexible and creative, breaking down traditional barriers between legal disciplines to provide guidance that suits a client’s needs across a wider spectrum.
