Prince Lobel has expanded its Media Practice Group with the addition of Kathryn D. Stone. Katie maintains a diverse practice representing clients on intellectual property and media matters, as well as various areas including advertising, marketing & sponsorship issues, digital and social media agreements, sports & entertainment law, FOIA requests and reporter’s privilege.
Katie worked several years for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts in both the Romney and Patrick administrations. She worked in Governor Mitt Romney’s Executive Office and later served as Legislative Director & Media Spokesperson for the Department of Housing and Community Development. She then became the Department’s Deputy Chief of Staff.

Currently, only around eight thousand professionals globally hold one or more certifications from IAPP.
