Kathryn M. Blom
Katie understands she is in a unique position to use legal skills to help clients solve business problems. This philosophy guides her in all areas of representation. She rarely tells her clients “no,” preferring instead to work with them to determine how they can accomplish goals within the confines of the law, helping clients identify practical and effective solutions.
A large portion of Katie’s practice is focused in the area of Mergers and Acquisitions (“M&A”), where she represents both buyers and sellers who are considering or engaging in the process of transitioning their company. She advises clients with respect to Letters of Intent, CDAs/NDAs, due diligence, definitive purchase agreements (stock or asset transactions), purchase price allocations, warranties and representations, indemnification (baskets, caps, etc.) and other challenging topics. Her significant experience and calm demeanor allow her to navigate even the most difficult transaction, at all times in pursuit of her client’s end goals.
Beyond M&A, Katie serves as a trusted adviser to her clients providing sophisticated yet understandable advice in all areas of business law, including contracts, financing, and commercial real estate. Finally, Katie also has a passion for working with charitable organizations. Once called the “Queen of Non-Profits” by a client, Katie is able to simplify the process of working with the Internal Revenue Service and the State, helping organizations obtain the desirable 501(c)(3) status.

Questions & Answers
Absolutely. I cannot imagine any career more fun than being able to help people make their dreams a reality. The life of a court room lawyer as depicted on television may seem much more “exciting,” but I get to help people during good times in their lives, when they are trying to start up and run their own businesses. It is neat when you drive down the street and see one of your client’s signs. It is a great feeling to see the fruits of what I have helped create.
I am actually a native of the Fox Valley. I grew up in Kaukauna and went to college in Green Bay. I did leave the Valley for three years to go to law school in Madison. Madison was certainly fun and I enjoyed my time there, but I could not wait to get back to the Valley. It offers some of the nicest people you’ll ever meet, great outdoor opportunities, short commute times and, of course, the Packers!
