Barack Ferrazzano Welcomes Katherine Neville to Litigation & Motor Vehicle Groups
Barack Ferrazzano is pleased to announce Katherine A. Neville has joined the Firm as an associate in the Litigation Group and Motor Vehicle Group.
Part of the strategic growth plan for the Litigation and Motor Vehicle Groups, Katie is the 7th trial lawyer to join the Firm within the last year, joining Nicholas H. Callahan, Daniel R. Fine, Hannah Y. Jurowicz, Joshua W. Mahoney, Krista N. Nelson and Michael J.B. Pitt. And two talented litigators, Sharon E. Calhoun and Brandon C. Prosansky, were promoted to the partnership at the beginning of 2015.
"We've been fortunate to see our practice expand and evolve during the last year with the addition of several promising young trial lawyers," said Roger H. Stetson, Litigation Group Co-Chair. "Katie's experience, especially in complex commercial litigation and white collar cases, is an asset to our clients and increases the depth of our practice."
Katie is the 2nd attorney to join the Motor Vehicle Group, following transactional attorney Samuel K. Kim, who joined in April 2015. "With the current climate of the motor vehicle industry, we're pleased with the growth of our team on both the transactional and litigation sides," said Randall L. Oyler, Motor Vehicle Group Co-Chair. "Katie's litigation experience and strategic approach to matters will enhance our ability to assist clients in achieving their business objectives."
Katie is well-versed in all aspects of litigation and alternative dispute resolution. She has litigated matters relating to breach of contract, business torts, bankruptcy and defamation. Prior to joining the Firm, Katie was an associate at Shook, Hardy & Bacon, LLP, where she handled a wide range of cases, including complex commercial litigation involving private equity post-closing disputes, fraud and insurance coverage.
Katie received her B.A., magna cum laude, from Saint Michael's College and her J.D., cum laude, from the Northwestern University School of Law, where she was Associate Editor of the Northwestern University Law Review, and a Member of the Faculty Appointments Committee.
