Kate Kliebert helps her business and financial services clients resolve litigation disputes and address data privacy concerns. Clients rely on her to anticipate problems before they arise and to proactively seek solutions to those problems.

She also routinely defends financial institutions and mortgage servicing companies in single-borrower actions brought under various regulatory and common law schemes.
In her data privacy practice, Kate advises clients on the potential risks of using third-party vendors to host their customers’ private information and on compliance with state-specific data breach notification laws and cybersecurity regulations. She has also made presentations to clients and industry groups on the importance of employing sound data security practices in businesses of all kinds.
In addition to serving business clients, Kate maintains an active pro bono practice. She has successfully represented a foreign national seeking the return of an abducted child through the Hague Convention Attorney Network and has aided an unaccompanied minor seeking special immigrant juvenile status in the United States. Kate also serves as secretary for the Charlotte Women Attorneys.
