As an attorney with Broude Jennings & McGlinchey PC, Kathryn has the privilege of representing a broad range of clients in the areas of business and commercial real estate law. In a small-firm setting, opportunities to “first-chair” deals present themselves earlier and more often, and Kathryn benefited from early experience running point on a variety of large transactions, including: sales of selected assets out of a Texas multifamily portfolio, aggregating to more than $65 million, and involving complex loan assumption and defeasance issues; a $29 million sale of a large multifamily property in Orlando, Florida, involving the release of municipal bond financing; and a $7 million stock and asset acquisition with respect to a North Texas outdoor advertising company and certain of its affiliated entities. A significant portion of her current practice focuses on representation of owners and operators of assisted living and skilled nursing facilities in connection with sales, acquisitions, lease transactions, partnerships with non-governmental state entities under the Texas Qualified Incentive Payment Program, and HUD 232/223(a)(7) and 232/223(f) financing transactions. However, she still enjoys getting lost in a good commercial lease (and considers it her mission to fix the bad ones). Kathryn represents both landlords and tenants in connection with office, retail, warehouse, industrial and other leases and finds that the perspective gained from representing landlords informs and enhances her representation of tenants, and vice versa.

The product of a long line of scientists, mathematicians, engineers – and artists, Kathryn is both a geek and a creative at heart, so she values opportunities to work with companies in the technology world and in scientific fields. The child of two parents who pursued second careers as educators, she ultimately followed in their footsteps, serving as an adjunct professor and mentoring future transactional attorneys as part of Texas A&M School of Law’s Entrepreneurship Law Clinic, and she enjoys opportunities to present on commercial law topics both in the classroom and at continuing legal education and other seminars.

When not working or volunteering, Kathryn can be found practicing her empty-nesting with her law school sweetheart-turned husband (one son in college, one soon to follow), said nest (a 1920s area Tudor cottage) being best characterized as “a never-ending work in progress.”
