Biography

Kathryn's clients benefit from her more than 20 years of experience handling complex commercial real estate matters. She is a transactional real estate attorney who focuses her practice on the commercial and retail market. She represents business and individual clients with real estate interests across the United States.

Whether representing borrowers or lenders in commercial loan transactions, landlords or tenants in retail and office leasing, or real estate investors acquiring or divesting of properties, Kathryn always pursues the best business outcomes for her clients. Because no two real estate transactions are ever the same, Kathryn seeks to truly understand her clients' goals at the outset of each engagement to ensure a clear path to success. Her clients appreciate her responsiveness to their needs and her ingenuity at coming up with effective solutions to challenges.

Kathryn's representative matters include:

  • Closing loans across New England and in states nationwide
  • Negotiating leases including extensions, amendments, terminations, and defaults
  • Subsequent Proceedings Involving Registered Land (S Petitions)
  • 1031 tax-deferred exchanges

Kathryn joined Verrill in 2018 after practicing real estate law in Boston for more than two decades. She enjoys the collegiality of the firm and collaborating with her partners across the tax, business, and litigation departments to solve clients' problems whenever they arise.

When not working, Kathryn can be found cheering on the sidelines of her three children's games. She enjoys skiing, hiking, traveling with her family, walking her dog, and chocolate.
