Advocate for a human centered economy that provides all individuals, families and communities with the time, love, resources, opportunities and connections they need to thrive.
Kathy Gregg has been a business attorney for 25 years handling corporate and commercial transactions, new business formations, governance and financing matters as a law firm associate and as in-house counsel for companies of all sizes. She is grateful for SELC’s leadership in promoting the practice of law for economic democracy and creating fellowship opportunities for lawyers transitioning to this work. Kathy now dedicates her time to economic equality activism, advancing worker-owned businesses and advocating for the role of cooperatives in building a solidarity economy that meets the needs of all. Her work is grounded in the belief that all individuals deserve the right to rewarding dignified work and to define the terms of their own labor. In addition to starting a law practice to advise worker cooperatives, Kathy is organizing the Cooperative Law Lab to launch in late 2021 which will develop advanced practice materials and technology tools for attorneys and their cooperative clients. Kathy is also planning the launch of a platform for the U.S. cooperative community that will aggregate cooperative ecosystem news, provide member networking, and showcase cooperative products and services. Kathy is a 2021 member of the steering committee of the Cooperative Professionals Guild as it prepares to become an independent professional association for cooperative attorneys, accountants and tax advisors.
Kathy is lucky to live with her husband in the beautiful small coastal town of Rockport, Massachusetts where they raised her two favorite people in the world.
