Katie Berger focuses her practice on complex civil litigation in federal and state courts. She has assisted in a range of matters, including antitrust, consumer class action, and civil RICO lawsuits, as well as disputes affecting public utilities and infrastructure. She has represented clients in the electrical, construction, steel, meat-packing, technology, and retail industries, among others. Her experience spans various stages of the litigation process and involves defending clients against state attorneys general, the Department of Justice (DOJ), and private entities.

Along with advising entities as to force majeure and other provisions within licensing and supply agreements, she was part of a team that secured dismissal on behalf of a university of claims by students concerning the university's use of online instruction during the pandemic. This dismissal was recently affirmed by the Sixth Circuit.
