Egan, Flanagan and Cohen is pleased to announce that it promoted Attorney Katie Manzi McDonough to partner.
Attorney Katie McDonough’s law practice includes estate and business planning, non-profit governance, trust and probate administration, and general corporate law. She enjoys working with a wide range of clients including non-profit boards, family-owned businesses, charities, and families whom she can help through the estate planning and probate process.
She began her career first as an analyst for J.P. Morgan Chase & Co. in New York and then as transactional lawyer for Simpson Thacher & Bartlett, LLP, a Wall Street law firm routinely ranked among the best firms internationally. “Katie’s client service is extremely dedicated and thorough,” said Attorney Paula C. Tredeau, head of the firm’s Estate Planning and Probate practice.
McDonough joined Egan Flanagan & Cohen in 2017. She brings experience in navigating complex organizations and transactions to our community. “When Katie returned to Western Mass with her young and growing family, we were excited at the prospect of adding her to our team. Katie’s hiring and promotion proves EFC’s ability to attract, recruit, and retain world-class, locally grown talent,” said Attorney Maurice Cahillane, managing partner of Egan, Flanagan & Cohen.
McDonough’s is the third in a recent series of promotions at the firm and evidences the firm’s commitment to growing its planning and corporate practices. Last year, Attorneys Lauren Olanoff and Michael G. McDonough were elevated following a spate of multi-million dollar verdicts achieved by the firm’s Litigation Department, headed by Attorney Jack Egan. Together, Olanoff, Michael and Katie McDonough, and the rest of the EFC team represent the next generation of up-and-coming local lawyers here in western Massachusetts.
McDonough, a native of Springfield and Longmeadow, Mass., attended the College of the Holy Cross in Worcester and Seton Hall University School of Law, graduating magna cum laude from each. She is a graduate of Longmeadow High School, and now resides in Longmeadow with her husband, Michael, and their two sons. She is the daughter of John and Betty Manzi, also of Longmeadow.
McDonough was recently elected to serve on the Board of Directors of the Hampden County Bar Association. She is an active member of the Holy Cross Club of the Pioneer Valley, the St. Thomas More Society, and St. Mary’s Parish in Longmeadow. In addition to her regular practice, she also takes time to help military veterans and their families.
