I’ve had the pleasure of working with Cate since launching my business in early 2012. When you are launching a new business and entering into your first agreements with customers, there are additional layers of complication and strategy to consider. What you are really doing, at that point, is trying to create deal templates that recognize and reasonably address key business points. While those templates will undoubtedly evolve as your business grows and the marketplace changes, it’s important that you start from the right place. Cate was key in helping me get my business off the ground in the best way possible. Cate has the skills and mindset that get you to the heart of the matter quickly, as she can recognize issues and help you resolve them. I appreciate her understanding that it’s important to keep the business moving forward and get smart results as soon as possible. I’ve had frustrating dealings with other attorneys who seemed to want to "make a career" out of what I anticipated to be a short project. Cate's practical, result oriented approach is just what I needed for my business. She’s clearly a knowledgeable attorney with my best interests at heart. You can’t ask for more than that. Bottom line, she’s the type of person you'd want on your team and I’m grateful for the excellent work she’s done for me.

I hired Cate to create a contract template for me to use in my freelance services. We had a very thorough consultation and she asked pertinent questions that helped her understand the work I do. The resulting template that she created is one that is flexible to one-off projects and on-going work. She kept me updated on the work she was doing and edited quickly when I requested changes. I'm very pleased with the results and feel much more secure in sending a contract to my clients!

Cate's help with a complex set of employment contract documents was simply invaluable. Her careful feedback on details of the contract went above and beyond what I had hoped for, and she is just an absolute pleasure to work with. Through her advice, I felt truly equipped to make good decisions, and without her valuable insights I would have never felt as comfortable when negotiating my contract. I wholeheartedly recommend her to all my colleagues and friends in similar situations.

I use Cate Gregory for our small businesses. She is a fantastic resource for me as an owner, and makes sure that my employee feels secure knowing she's being treated right. Aside from my interior design and staging business, I am a real estate and construction attorney. Despite my legal knowledge, I know employment law is a highly specialized area that needs expertise. Cate quickly and clearly describes and summarizes all employment issues for my small businesses. I couldn't succeed without her!
