Kathleen Hale ’01 (BA in Political Science) is a civil litigator representing plaintiffs who have been physically injured, had their intellectual property stolen, or been victims of fraud or other commercial misconduct. Ms. Hale began her career clerking on the U.S. District Court for the District of Arizona and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. She then gained significant litigation experience handling dozens of personal injury, wrongful death, and products liability cases in a prominent, plaintiffs-side law firm in Arizona. After relocating to Washington, D.C., Ms. Hale broadened her practice areas to include insurance recovery and intellectual property. In 2010, she was the third-chair attorney representing a victim of intellectual property theft in a trial that resulted in a $26 million verdict for the client. Shortly thereafter, she was invited to join a start-up litigation boutique as a founding partner. She represents individuals and businesses in all stages of litigation, from the initial investigation and filing of the lawsuit through trial and appeal.
