Catherine Robinson works predominantly in the firm’s Real Estate and Business and Transactional practice groups. Her practice focuses on land use, zoning, real estate development, and commercial leasing, as well as commercial real estate, commercial lending, business transactions and non-profit and religious organizations. She enjoys counseling clients on a wide variety of real estate and business transactions, including the best way to navigate the zoning and land use approvals process, and believes that an important part of achieving a client’s land use vision is building and maintaining relationships among the development team, planning staff, planning boards, and elected officials. She also enjoys working with religious organizations and other non-profits to help them navigate the unique issues they face.
Before joining the Firm, Catherine worked for a large national law firm representing local and multi-national businesses in commercial real estate and corporate matters. She also spent over ten years as an attorney in Texas and New Mexico, where she represented a diverse clientele including developers, political subdivisions, farmers and ranchers, and regional and national banks in a variety of areas including commercial real estate, land use and zoning, governmental and administrative law, water law and natural resources, corporate transactions and church law.
In addition to her legal experience, Catherine spent several years working for an international non-governmental agency in Albania. She currently serves as a member of the board of directors for a closely-held corporation and has served on a number of academic boards and committees, and as an adjunct professor of Business Law at Washington Adventist University in Takoma Park, Maryland. In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with her family, traveling, and being actively involved with her church.
