Katherine has built her career around negotiating contracts for the world’s largest financial institutions. After graduating from Cornell Law School in 2003, Katherine joined the New York office of the international law firm White & Case LLP. From there, she went to the New York office of Simpson Thacher & Bartlett LLP, another top-tier international law firm. She then further expanded her legal and business experience as Vice President and Counsel at Jefferies Finance LLC, the finance arm of a global investment bank.

As CEO and lead agent of Friedman & Salisbury, Katherine takes the legal and business skills that she developed in the banking industry and brings them to the sports management industry.

Katherine is extremely attentive to each of her clients and takes the time to understand their needs and wants so that she can negotiate contracts that not only meet, but exceed, their expectations.

Katherine has always been dedicated to athletics. She was a competitive swimmer for twelve years and set many top ten records in college. When her swimming career ended, Katherine began training for triathlons, which she continued throughout law school and beyond. She has a passion for international issues and spent time studying International and European Business Law at Bucerius Law School in Hamburg, Germany.

Katherine received her B.A. from the University of Chicago. She currently splits her time between the New York and Stockholm offices so that she can best serve the needs of her clients.
