Concord, NH –
Following a recent special election, Kathleen Mahan was elected Vice President of the New Hampshire Bar Association. She succeeds Paul Chant, who was named President-Elect.
Mahan is a litigation partner at Hinckley Allen, where she practices in several intellectual property matters, including trade secrets, trademarks, and copyrights. She also handles business disputes in relation to corporate governance, non-compete conflicts, contract actions, and other professional disagreements.
Kate received her bachelor’s degree, cum laude, from Saint Anselm College and her juris doctor, cum laude, from Suffolk University. Prior to working at Hinckley Allen, Kate worked at a boutique business law firm for over 12 years and clerked for the New Hampshire Supreme Court, as well as the New Hampshire Superior Court.
She is a member of the New Hampshire Bar Foundation Board of Directors as well as the New Hampshire Bar Association’s Committee on Cooperation with the Courts. She is also a long-time member of the Daniel Webster-Batchelder Inns of Court.
Being active in the Bar is nothing new for Mahan and being elected as Vice President is an exciting milestone. She looks forward to being involved and to help improve our Bar because of the direct impact it has on the legal profession.
“My involvement with the Bar stems back a number of years and I see the Bar Association as playing a critical role in our profession, especially as a mandatory bar,” Mahan says. “I wanted to be involved with that and understand its inner workings and have a voice about how it operates.”
Her hope for her time on the Board of Governors is that she helps foster engagement amongst attorneys within the Bar and with the communities they serve.
