At Wright Beamer, we continually strive to deliver timely, cost-effective solutions for our clients’ legal and business problems. To do that, we maintain a strong team of lawyers and administrative professionals with diverse skills and practice backgrounds. As our business grows, so does our team. In the past few months, we have been fortunate to add two highly skilled attorneys to our ranks.
Over her eighteen year career, Kathryn R. Spray has developed a specialized practice in the field of corporate law with emphasis on contractual relationships, corporate solutions, and commercial litigation. Kathryn has argued on behalf of clients in state and federal courts including the Federal Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit located in Cincinnati, Ohio. She has collaborated in a wide variety of business ventures ranging from multi-million dollar mergers to the incorporation and administration of numerous small businesses. Kathryn also practices real estate law. She is a LEED accredited professional with the United States Green Building Council and has passed the Michigan Real Estate Licensing examination.
Having grown up in and around family-owned small businesses, Kathryn has an appreciation for the practical difficulties that today’s business owners face in balancing their legal needs with common sense business solutions. In her words, “My focus is to create legal solutions that enable people and businesses to move forward.”
A two-time American Jurisprudence Award winner, Kathryn is a cum laude graduate of the University of Detroit Mercy School of Law and a graduate of the University of Michigan’s Literature, Science & Arts College. She has been an Oakland County resident since 1971 and is an active member of several charitable boards, associations, and organizations.
Evan Chall joined the firm this month. He concentrates his practice in the areas of business and complex commercial litigation. In 2011 and 2012, Evan was recognized by Super Lawyers, an attorney peer review survey, as one of Michigan’s “Rising Stars” in the area of business litigation. Evan has been active in all phases of litigation including discovery, depositions, settlement negotiations, and motion practice in state and federal courts.
Evan graduated cum laude from Wayne State University Law School in 2008 and summa cum laude from Eastern Michigan University in 2005. Evan competed as an “attorney” on the 2005 Eastern Michigan University mock trial national team.
Evan also serves as an adjunct professor at Henry Ford Community College, where he teaches a course in American government and political science. Evan draws from his experience as an educator to explain complex legal issues in a straightforward, understandable manner. At the end of the day, this ability to distill complex situations into understandable explanations is what makes him so highly effective. As Evan observes, “Effective communication – with courts, opposing counsel and, most importantly, clients – is the key to efficiently resolving legal disputes.”
