Kate Lawrence is the founder of Lawrence Law and one of the area’s most highly sought-after experts in construction law. She represents construction businesses in both litigation and corporate matters, with clients ranging from small family-owned companies to multi-million-dollar commercial enterprises. Raised around the construction industry, Kate is passionate about protecting contractors and making sure they are paid the money they’ve worked hard to earn. She launched Lawrence Law in 2013 when she was just 29, and has worked tirelessly to become a trusted friend, advisor, and advocate to Greater Baltimore’s construction industry. Along the way, Kate has aligned with some of the area’s most experienced and accomplished litigators and led Lawrence Law’s expansion into an array of new practice areas, including securities regulation and compliance, estate litigation, commercial litigation, product liability, employment law, and more.
With more than a decade of big law firm experience, Kate provides high-level, sophisticated legal advice while maintaining small-firm accessibility. Known for her credibility and professionalism, she is dedicated to achieving the most favorable results for each of her clients.
Kate is actively involved with the Greater Baltimore Chapter of Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC), serving as general counsel, helping to recruit new members, and providing pro-bono work to new and emerging contractors. She is also a member and former legislative chair of the American Subcontractor Association of Baltimore.
She is affiliated with Project Jumpstart – a Baltimore nonprofit training people with criminal backgrounds for employment in the construction industry. Kate has helped the organization with pro bono legal guidance, contributed to its strategic planning, helped plan fundraising events, and encouraged her construction clients to hire workers from the program.
Kate has received multiple honors for her achievements as an attorney and business owner. In 2022, she was named both one of Maryland’s Leading Women Under 40 by the Maryland Daily Record and one of Baltimore’s 40 Under 40 by the Baltimore Business Journal. Kate is a graduate of Cleveland-Marshall College of Law, and a former editor of the Cleveland State Law Review.
