About Katherine

Learn Katherine’s areas of practice.


Highly experienced business attorney specializing in contracts and agreements, corporate incorporate and formation, and issues affecting small business owners in Vermont.

With a budding array of clients, Kat started Hatch Law & Consulting, PLC in June of 2015, to exclusively serve small businesses in Vermont using today's technology, positive energy, and plain English.

In 2007, Kat helped her husband Jeremy start his own business, O'Neill Builders, LLC. This trial-by-fire experience was an integral part of her decision to work with small businesses as an attorney.  Because she’s been there on the business side, Kat is uniquely positioned to help you manage the issues that arise with your small business, and to help you prevent problems from starting in the first place.

Admitted to the Vermont Bar in 2011, Kat found her interest in working with small businesses blossomed from the start of her legal career as an associate at Dinse, Knapp & McAndrew, PC in Burlington. In 2014, Kat left Dinse and began building her small business practice as an attorney at a small firm in the Burlington area where she also worked in the firm's real estate practice.

Would definitely recommend Katherine's services!
I recently opened my second business, a hot yoga studio, and needed some basic legal advice as well as formal employment contracts drafted for 15+ teachers, something I was totally unfamiliar with and hadn't had to consider with my first business. Katherine worked swiftly and made sure to go over the contracts with me and break them down fully in layman's terms; the final contracts were composed in a comprehensive manner that was still digestible for my employees. Katherine's legal consultation was always incredibly professional and without a doubt indispensable to the initial success of my studio. Her work is transparent and timely, and her knowledge is extensive. She has my strong approval and I will utilize her legal services if needed in the future.

Highly Recommend Katherine!
My co-founder and I have been using Katherine since we formed our company in 2015. She's helped with all our founding agreements, financing deals as well as ongoing support with our client contracts. I have found her to be professional, timely and always offering solid advise while taking into consideration our personal and business needs. Katherine is especially knowledgeable in the entrepreneur/startup ecosystem helping to navigate what can be quite daunting and confusing legal requirements and considerations when starting a new business. I highly recommend her!
