Liff, Walsh & Simmons Welcomes Kathleen Millrood


Kathleen Millrood joined the Liff, Walsh & Simmons firm in January 2022 as a law clerk and subsequently joined as an associate in August 2023, working with the business law, commercial finance and real estate practice groups. Millrood assists in the firm’s diverse practice areas in matters involving commercial property transactions including sales and leasing, business transactions, general business counseling and commercial finance transactions.

While a law student, Millrood served as president of the Maryland Carey Law’s alternate dispute resolution team and competed in negotiation and mediation competitions, including the 2022 International Chamber of Commerce International Commercial Mediation Competition. She also was a member of Carey Law’s Business Law Society. During her second year of law school, Millrood was a part of Maryland Carey Law’s Consumer Protection Clinic where she served as a student attorney under the Maryland Office of the Attorney General Consumer Protection Division. She also served as a legal intern for the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, enforcement division.

“Kathleen is extremely passionate about her work and relentless in her pursuit of excellence in pretty much everything she does,” said Tom Simmons, Partner at Liff, Walsh & Simmons. “If her accomplishments in law school are any indication of her future success, she is going to do great things at our firm and we are excited to have her on our team.”

Millrood obtained her Juris Doctor from the University of Maryland Francis Carey School of Law and received her certification in business law. Millrood holds Bachelor of Arts degrees in political science (international relations) and international development with honors from Tulane University. In November 2023, Millrood was sworn into the Maryland Bar to become a licensed attorney to practice law in Maryland.

“I grew up in areas where small and local businesses played a pivotal role,” Millrood said. “I felt their impact on the community and witnessed the unique types of issues they faced. My background gave me an appreciation for the importance of protecting those local businesses, which aligns well with the work at Liff, Walsh & Simmons.

“Not only does the firm understand the vitality of these businesses, but the attorneys and professionals at the firm truly understand the importance of the connection with the broader community,” she said. “It’s exactly the type of firm culture I was looking for.”
