With a focus on representing CEOs and founders, Katy Spillers handles a broad range of corporate matters for emerging growth and middle-market companies, including mergers and acquisitions, financings, and joint ventures.

Katy represents clients in a wide variety of industries, but she has deep expertise in advising branded consumer products, technology/new media, and entertainment companies.

Significant representative matters include:

  • Since 2016, Katy has represented Barstool Sports, Inc., one of the country’s fastest-growing digital media companies (valued at $450M), and in January 2020 represented Barstool in its exclusive sports betting and gaming partnership with Penn National Gaming, Inc. (“Penn National”), a publicly-traded gaming company. The $163M deal is significant because it involves the first major transaction between a media company and gaming company since the Supreme Court essentially legalized sports betting in 2018.
     
  • Represents Karlie Kloss personally in consumer investments, talent deals, fundraisers, sponsorships, advisor services, and various agreements (i.e. endorsement, program, appearance, collaboration, hosting, and charitable promotion agreements), which over the past two years include Dior, Vogue/Nordstrom, Amazon Fashion, Project Runway, AMEX, Nintendo, SAP and AWAY. Katy also represents Karlie Kloss’s Kode With Klossy (KWK), free coding camps that create learning experiences and opportunities for young women that increase their confidence and inspire them to pursue their passions in a technology-driven world. KWK deals include Ford, StockX, OMAZE, Teach for America, Bumble, and ADCouncil.
     
  • Represents Good American since inception through each fundraising round. Founded by Emma Grede and Khloe Kardashian, Good American is a leader in the body positivity movement.
     
  • Represents Skims since inception in each fundraising round. Skims is a shapewear line founded by Kim Kardashian West.

Becoming a partner of the firm early in her career, Katy has established herself as a leader, serving on the firm’s strategic planning committee, leading for the past four years the firm’s international legal efforts as a member of the board of the World Law Group (a global network of leading independent law firms), and assisting early on with both lateral and associate recruiting.

Continuing her commitment to women entrepreneurs and leaders, Katy is a founding member/sponsor of Women’s Entrepreneurship Day and serves on its advisory board. In addition, Katy is an active member of the Women’s Leadership Council and was included in its first class of associate members.
