Beck Redden LLP Partner Kat Gallagher has been selected by Lawyer Monthly magazine as a recipient of the 2016 Women in Law Award in recognition of her outstanding legal expertise and contribution within the area of litigation. The award recognizes and honors the achievements of women that have challenged, influenced, or changed the practice of law over the last 12 months across the globe.
With more than 25 years practicing law, Kat Gallagher has distinguished herself as an elite trial lawyer with outstanding instincts for how to best tell her client’s story in the most persuasive and compelling manner. When some of the largest companies in the world, including Philip Morris USA, an Altria Company, need trial counsel they can rely on in high stakes litigation, they call Kat to represent them, regardless of the jurisdiction. Consistently recognized as one of the Best Lawyers in America (2006‐2016), Kat has earned the respect of her peers and adversaries alike. For example, she is a Fellow of the prestigious American College of Trial Lawyers, a preeminent association of trial lawyers limited to the top one percent of lawyers in any given jurisdiction. In addition, she is a Fellow of the International Academy of Trial Lawyers (IATL) – membership in the Academy is limited to only 500 Fellows in the U.S. Kat is also an Associate in the American Board of Trial Advocates (ABOTA).
