Prior to founding Katz Group, Julie was a partner at the independent intellectual property law firm Welsh & Katz, Ltd. and the general practice firm Husch Blackwell, LLP.

A Client-Centered Service Philosophy

Julie sees her role as that of a counselor. With a deep understanding of IP law and enforcement strategies, backed by successful litigation outcomes on numerous high-profile infringement cases, she rigorously protects her clients’ business interests.

In addition, Julie uses a menu of fixed fees for services, based on the complexity of each service rather than the time increment billing preferred by many law firms. A fixed fee approach minimizes budget uncertainties, enabling clients to better predict and plan for the legal services Julie provides. Appropriate in transactional practice and in litigation, fixed fees also serve to increase the flow of communication between Julie and her client.
