Katie White

Career Coach

Katie White has been advising attorneys in a variety of settings throughout her professional career.  Here’s one story that illustrates what she is all about.

A top international law firm Counsel was referred to Katie for assistance in making a career transition.  A recent law created a panel of administrative law judges in the US Patent Office Court.  The client had never applied for a government position, and hadn’t had to prepare a resume in years.  Katie worked with the client to prepare her application to be submitted via USAJobs.com.  When the client was chosen to interview, Katie coached her and she aced the interview.  They met again, before the client went on to the final interviews, and she is now a judge.

Katie’s niche is working with attorneys – who value her years of experience as an attorney coach; law firm professional development and recruiting professional; law school counseling work; and her reputation in the legal community.

A frequent public speaker, she recently presented a program about utilizing LinkedIn – and “Branding Yourself for Career Success” at the Association for Corporate Counsel in New Jersey.

Katie’s clients include in-house attorneys at the general counsel and junior levels; law firm partners, associates and counsel; government attorneys both in junior roles and at the Assistant Deputy Chief, Chief, and Deputy Commissioner levels.  And, attorneys in the Intellectual Property law field.

In addition to her consulting business and collaboration with HR Legal Search, Katie is the Director of Employer Outreach at The George Washington University Law School where she also specializes in counseling Intellectual Property law students.

Prior to starting KT White Law Careers, she was Chief Attorney Recruiting Officer at Akin Gump and Director of Attorney Recruiting and Professional Development at Dickstein Shapiro.  She held similar positions at Morgan Lewis, Swidler Berlin, Cleary Gottlieb, and Covington & Burling.

In her spare time, she makes and sells necklaces, a hobby she thoroughly enjoys.  And she has two successfully launched children who couldn’t be more fabulous.
