You Started a Business: Now What?

The Legal Details you Need to Know

Kathryn Turpin is a senior corporate and transactional attorney with experience working with a spectrum of businesses from the small start-up company to the medium sized company. She is licensed to practice law in both Texas and California, and she works with companies to help them identify the proper ownership structure and then to implement their plan for doing business (whether as a traditional brick and mortar business or an online business). In this role, she creates form agreements for the business and documents the relationships between the business and its customers, vendors or business partners as well as the relationships between the business owners and employees or consultants. Kathryn views her relationship with clients as a collaborative effort, with the goal of making a client’s business run as smoothly as possible.
Prior to moving back to Austin in 1997, Kathryn practiced law for several years in Los Angeles. In California, Kathryn worked at large law firms in downtown Los Angeles, focusing primarily on corporate securities matters and complex transactions for large private companies and publicly held companies. In both Los Angeles and Austin, Kathryn has served as general counsel to small start-up companies and senior corporate counsel to larger companies. In these roles, Kathryn developed the
flexibility to respond to a wide variety of legal issues, often identifying and coordinating other resources needed by a client to resolve a matter.
Kathryn’s clients find her to be a thoughtful, attentive counselor who provides simple and clear explanations to her clients and who can craft cost-effective solutions to meet their business goals.
Kathryn is a three-time Ironman finisher and has crossed the Grand Canyon eight times. She is happily married to an astrophysicist and has two stepchildren in college. In her free time, Kathryn enjoys hiking, swimming, yoga, reading, and spending time with their cats.
