Katherine Musbach’s practice is focused on cyber security, commercial litigation, insurance coverage and bank litigation. 

She regularly represents domestic and international insurers in coverage disputes across the country, with a particular emphasis on fidelity bond, commercial crime policy and cyber claims. She has successfully represented insurers in numerous disputes concerning email-based fraud, loan losses, third-party losses, electronic trading losses, fraudulent mortgage conveyances and a wide range of employee theft schemes. Katherine also regularly litigates coverage disputes arising out of cyber exclusions on a myriad of policies. 

A substantial portion of Katherine’s practice is focused on fraud and cyber breach investigations. She investigates allegations of employee dishonesty, vendor fraud, medical provider fraud and cyber-crime to advise clients on coverage issues and recovery opportunities. As a result of her investigatory work, her clients have successfully negotiated settlements and pursued litigation for losses involving compromised email accounts, hacked payment processing systems, medical and pharmaceutical overbilling schemes, and defective technology. Katherine is also experienced in coordinating with criminal prosecutions to ensure that her clients’ interest in criminal forfeitures and restitution payments is protected. 

Katherine received her J.D., cum laude, from Duke University School of Law. During law school, she spent a semester studying international law and international commercial arbitration at the University of Hong Kong. Prior to law school, Katherine taught third grade with Teach For America in Phoenix.
