The firm’s sponsorship of Real Estate '08: Outlook on Charlotte Real Estate was highlighted in a Charlotte Business Journal article. In particular, the article discussed the fact that the idea for the event was conceived by firm associates Jill Dinerman and John Curry. “I have always encouraged Katten’s associates to be leaders in the community,” says Daniel S. Huffenus, the firm’s Charlotte office managing partner. “Based on the turnout and feedback we’ve gotten, it was definitely an event that the Charlotte real estate community needed and will hopefully return for in 2009.” (“Kardous is all heart in pitch for CMC fund raising event,” February 8, 2008)
