"I worked with Kate on the Telmap acquisition and found her to be a great lawyer. She's tireless, dedicated and detail-oriented and also able to step back and consider the wider implications of a given legal issue or decision. She's also fun to work with and is one of the few people to get my "math is hard" reference (Barbie) which combined with her profession puts her in very select group of one. I look forward to working with Kate again. She should be on your short-list for an acquisition team"
