Cathy Altman knows that business disputes, like a game of chess, require deliberate moves with an eye to the end game. That’s why she always studies the entire board, looking several moves ahead in order to anticipate problems and keep the game in front of her. To accomplish that, Cathy brings an uncanny ability to combine the strategic with the practical. Her experience in construction and real estate disputes brings another dimension to clients in those industries.
A fifth-generation farmer, she’s not afraid to get her hands dirty, to dig in, go onsite, and work through what may seem to be the smallest details of complicated cases. If there’s one key thing that will move the case toward resolution, she’ll often spot it. Whether a controversy arises out of contract disputes, project performance, or business torts, clients trust Cathy to guide them through the project, across discovery, and to the trial or arbitration hearing.
