"We listen. We learn. We Provide."



Kate Kliebert

(KLEE • bear)

Hi, I'm Kate. I love supporting passionate entrepreneurs who are ready to embrace the opportunities and challenges facing their growing businesses with confidence. My mission is to teach my clients to think proactively about their legal position so they're ready for surprises that might shut a less prepared business down.

I spent the early years of my career at big law firms representing businesses in courtroom fights with their customers and competitors. I learned two things from that experience - it's always expensive, and the end result is rarely worth it. In nearly every dispute I could identify a moment where it all went wrong. A moment where having the right person involved in the decision-making process could have changed everything. I want to be that person for my clients.

I'm a firm believer that legal issues don’t have to be confusing or scary. I strive to make the process as approachable and painless as possible – and sometimes even fun! Every business deserves a dedicated partner to guide them on their journey, even if they're not quite big enough for their own full-time lawyer.

With over a decade of experience advising businesses on their legal issues, I know the areas most likely to cause your business trouble down the road. It's hard to know what really matters when you're in the weeds every day. My job is to take a step back, identify those key issues, and make a plan for dealing with them so your business can stay ahead of the competition. 


In my spare time,

I enjoy scuba diving

Exploring the mountains with my dog, Stella!

and photographing wildlife.
