Biography

To Catherine, bankruptcy proceedings resemble a high-stakes puzzle. She relishes the opportunity to counsel clients as they evaluate their businesses piece-by-piece, restructure their operations, and re-emerge from chapter 11 proceedings. Catherine draws upon her previous experience as a structured and leveraged finance attorney to creatively approach the challenges faced by debtors and debtors-in-possession in bankruptcy. Before joining Young Conaway, Catherine represented borrowers and lenders in domestic and cross-border finance transactions, ranging from general syndicated financings, to the structuring of asset-backed facilities, to the offering of debt and equity securities.

Catherine graduated from the Georgetown University Law Center, where she was the Symposium Co-Chair of the Georgetown Environmental Law Review. During law school, she served as a campus tour guide, a student tutor, and an LL.M. Teaching Fellow. Catherine earned her B.A. with highest distinction from the History Distinguished Majors Program at the University of Virginia in 2014.
