Prior to joining Brown Brothers in 2014, Karin was a partner in the tax and estates group of a boutique Chicago law firm.

Karin has a particular expertise advising the crypto and/or tech-oriented entrepreneur and has been quoted extensively in local and national newspapers and magazines and featured on WSBT and WBBM’s evening news for her views regarding cryptocurrency, digital assets and estate planning.
