McGuireWoods’ Kate Watlington Profiled in UVA Law’s Annual Report

November 21, 2019

Charlotte senior counsel Kate Watlington was profiled in the University of Virginia School of Law’s 2018-2019 annual report. In 2008, she was the inaugural recipient of the Law Alumnae Scholarship, which was created and funded by women graduates. The article focused on the continued growth and importance of women in the legal profession, the importance of giving back to the law school and Watlington’s project finance practice at McGuireWoods.

Watlington practiced in Hong Kong and Singapore for six years before joining McGuireWoods’ debt finance practice in Charlotte, where she focuses on energy sector project development and finance.

“McGuireWoods has a tremendous energy practice with a focus on renewables, which was a perfect fit for both my background and career goals, as I had long been interested in focusing on more renewable work,” she said. “It has been a great transition and we are loving being back in the U.S. and particularly in Charlotte.”
