Client Comments

"Kathryn Roe has a deep understanding of healthcare laws, but always tries to frame her advice in the context of practical business issues. She is always responsive to my requests and I love that she keeps me in mind when she hears about issues that may impact my company."

"Kathy Roe is the rarest and most valuable of attorneys in that she somehow moves at the speed of my business client's (often unreasonable) deadlines with the attention to detail of an attorney who has unlimited time on her hands. Her productivity and breadth of knowledge are astounding. Perhaps most impressively, Kathy's uncompromising professional scrutiny never diminishes her ability to see the big picture. Though expert in analysis of the finest regulatory peculiarities, Kathy has proven most valuable in her unique ability to anticipate both legal and regulatory evolution and identify the most critical resultant business implications. Truly, Kathy is the lawyer's lawyer."

-Scott Whipple

"Kathryn brings a wealth of regulatory knowledge and transactional experience to the table, but perhaps her greatest strength is her ability to grasp nuances of complex business arrangements and apply her knowledge and experience to help the client achieve a desired result."
