Katie Pangburn supports Tucker Ellis teams across diverse areas of practice to assist clients in a variety of industries.

During law school, Katie worked as a law clerk at an entertainment law firm, where she researched labor and employment issues in the context of the entertainment industry, evaluated potential client claims, and prepared recommendations on case acceptance. Katie also worked as a law clerk for an organization that offered free family law assistance and legal education to its clients, providing legal advice and social service referrals under attorney supervision.

Rounding out her experience, Katie worked as a summer law clerk for a municipal law department. She prepared and drafted contracts, supported contract negotiations, researched municipal procurement issues, and worked with agencies on pre-litigation dispute resolutions.

Katie enjoys hiking and traveling. Dublin, Ireland and Queenstown, New Zealand are among her favorite travel destinations, and she's looking forward to visiting Barcelona, Spain next. When not traveling, she keeps busy doing logic puzzles, daily crosswords, Sudoku, and yoga.
