Kerry Battles - Katherine Battles

I was inspired to enter the practice of law by my father, Andrew Kehoe, who was a patent attorney and partner of a Boston-based patent and trademark firm. As a child, I was fascinated by all the inventions he had the privilege of obtaining patents for as well as the interesting inventors and companies with which he worked. He was a chemical engineer and the inventions were wide ranging from chemical photography and mood rings to high-nutrient pasta. He lived in a very exciting world. Driven by his example, I became a corporate attorney focused on protecting my clients’ intellectual property and helping to grow their businesses.

Throughout my career, I have had the pleasure of working with businesses in a variety of industries from companies offering SaaS solutions to energy products. Working in-house has afforded me the opportunity to work closely with management to gain a deep understanding of my clients’ business concerns and legal challenges. My practice includes handling all types of legal matters including corporate formation, governance, compliance, collections, employment matters, agreement drafting & negotiating (including licenses & SaaS, leases), corporate compliance, legal training, disputes and mergers & acquisitions. I am a member of Devine Millimet’s Corporate Practice and the Merger and Acquisitions Team.

When not practicing law, I enjoy spending time with my extended family and helping my husband, Peter, on our small family farm raising chickens and tending to our fruit trees and garden. We also enjoy going to 4H events and, over the years, have proudly watched my daughter, Abby, show her prized winning Bantam Silkies.  In the warmer months, we like to go fishing and boating on the Piscataqua River and Great Bay where we have a family cottage that has been enjoyed by our family for four generations. We also enjoy skiing, boating, biking, hiking and all the outdoor activities that living in this beautiful state of New Hampshire offers.

I am honored to have the opportunity to serve our clients and help them to grow their businesses, offer innovative products and services to their customers, and realize their business goals.
