Having worked in human resources and management in the private sector, Katy Rand brings hands-on experience to her practice. Her client work primarily involves employment law, with a focus on discrimination, harassment, retaliation, and wage / hour issues. Katy helps employers avoid litigation, counseling them on compliance and employee relations issues and, where appropriate, negotiating early resolution of disputes. She also has an active litigation practice, routinely advocating on behalf of employers in state and federal court, as well as before administrative agencies such as the Maine Human Rights Commission and Department of Labor.
In addition to her employment practice, Katy is a certified Title IX investigator and regularly conducts independent investigations for employers and educational institutions on a wide range of issues, including sexual harassment and sexual misconduct.
After college and before attending law school, Katy completed a management training program with Hannaford Brothers Company and worked for this major New England grocery retailer in various capacities, including as a department manager and department specialist, managing inventory and margins, addressing employee relations issues, implementing corporate marketing programs, and preparing for new store openings in North Carolina and Virginia. In addition, Katy worked as a Human Resources Consultant at L.L. Bean, where she helped managers navigate the kinds of issues she advises her clients on every day. After earning her law degree, Katy clerked for United States District Court Judge D. Brock Hornby.
