Katie Ryder

Partnerships Manager

As our Partnerships Manager, Katie works with our partners to help them put their messages in front of our community of solo and small firm lawyers.

Her brilliance on the team is:

Katie is universally regarded as an awesome person to work with. She is kind and caring and yet sticks to her deadlines and isn’t afraid to nudge the team in a stern and loving way when she needs something from them. We absolutely love her for that! Katie lives our Seek Candor value in the way she approaches her work with partners (yes, we actually tell people it might not make sense for them to work with us) and with our team.


Katie is steady, well-grounded, and such a delight to work with. She’s ever-reliable and does it with grace.


Katie is steady. She’s reliable, capable, and knowledgable. You can always count on her to do her part and bring her “A” game. Katie is easy to work with because her stability provides a solid foundation for the workday.
