Kate Clemens is an attorney in the firm’s Houston office with a focus on representing insurers in the enforcement of reimbursement and subrogation rights as they relate to various types of health plans, including ERISA, non-ERISA, and Medicare Advantage plans. With her experience in both civil litigation as well as general transactional work, Kate is able to successfully represent and advocate for her clients in an expeditious and cost effective manner.

Prior to joining McDowell Hetherington, Kate practiced civil litigation at a boutique law firm in downtown Houston and, most recently, worked as in house counsel for the leading media company in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates where her practice included drafting and negotiating agreements for the Abu Dhabi production of international productions like Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Netflix’s War Machine.

Outside of the office, Kate enjoys spending the weekends biking the trails through the city with her family and traveling, a love she inherited from her four years living abroad.
