Thank you for visiting my profile page. Here is a bit of information to help you get to know more about me:
I have developed a broad corporate law specialty with emphasis on transactional work over the course of three decades of legal practice. I have provided counsel in a wide variety of matters ranging from the incorporation and administration of small businesses and nonprofit organizations, to negotiating and documenting multi-million dollar mergers and acquisitions. I have been an active member of a number of local charitable boards, associations, and organizations throughout my career, and have been elected to sit on the Board of Directors and retained as General Counsel for several local businesses and nonprofit organizations. I am an award-winning intellectual property attorney, and have successfully represented clients in matters related to IP asset evaluation, registration, protection, and disputes. My corporate law experience extends into the commercial real estate space as well, as I have provided counsel in a number of commercial purchase and leasing transactions.

 

I am admitted to and have successfully represented clients at all levels of the Michigan court system, as well as in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan, the Federal Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit, the Federal Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit in Washington, D.C., and the United States Patent and Trademark Office. I passed the Michigan Real Estate Licensing examination, and am a LEED accredited professional with the United States Green Building Council.

 

In addition to my career experiences, I have a lifetime of experienceworking in and around closely-held corporations. My personal experiences have given me an appreciation for the practical difficulties that today’s business owners face, allowing me to provide a unique level of assistance to clients when balancing their legal needs with practical solutions.

 

I am a member of the Kotz Sangster Corporate Practice Group, focusing on corporate transactions, mergers and acquisitions, intellectual property, and real estate practice.

Highly Recommended
It was an absolute pleasure to have Kathy handle the contract work for the sale of my insurance agency. She demonstrated a keen understanding and familiarity with the specifics of the underlying Agreement my business operated under. Kathy was always professional, courteous, attentive to my questions and concerns, and always prompt with her communications. I always felt confident in her work and responses.

Very Accomodating!
Kathryn helped me with the sale contract for my business. I was on a short time frame to get things done and she worked with me to make it happen quickly. We had a lot of back and forth between buyer and seller and Kathryn was so patient. I would highly recommend her to anyone!

My experience with Kathryn Spray has been absolutely exceptional. I had been to more attorneys than i care to recall about my dilemma, which was slowly putting me out of business by the way, and not only were they not interested in helping me, the apathy in regard to my circumstances was astonishing. Kathryn was truly a Godsend for me from the very first time we spoke. Kathryn actually listened to me. What struck me most poignantly was that i could tell that she actually cared, which gave me hope for the very first time that i could win...and we did! Kathryn Spray is the most skilled, competent, empathetic, and professional Attorney i could have hoped for and i am truly thankful for her help and dedication.

Highly recommended attorney!
Kathy handled my asset purchase agreement review and all the documents needed to complete the purchase of my business. She was very thorough with the contract reviews and made sure I was fully protected as a buyer. She was always punctual with delivery and communication. Post closing, she was there to resolved an issue in my favor and handled it very professionally! I highly recommend Kathy and look forward to using her again as my attorney!
