As Founding and Managing Partner of Ciresi
Conlin, Katie’s known for practicing at the intersection of science and the
law. She pinpoints the advantages and
disadvantages of each case, quickly and efficiently. In order to know how to
maneuver your client’s case, you also need to understand your opponent’s path.
Seeing through the pitfalls while recognizing the advantages both sides face
helps to refine the business goals and litigation strategies for any dispute.
Plus, after over 20 years of practice, Katie’s learned that the best litigation
strategy may be an unconventional one. When not working, Katie can be found at
her northern Minnesota cabin, running, or encouraging her three children in
some new adventure.
