Kerry Cahill is a transactional attorney who handles corporate, energy, environmental, general equity, healthcare, probate and tax matters.
Kerry started her career as a judicial intern to the Hon. Yolanda Ciccone, A.J.S.C. In 2011, she served as the law clerk to the Hon. John J. Coyle, Jr., J.S.C., in the Superior Court of New Jersey - Somerset County. In this capacity, she managed Judge Coyle's Law Division and Special Civil dockets and assisted with his Probate and General Equity dockets. In 2012, she became a certified and trained mediator pursuant to New Jersey Court Rule 1:40-12(b)(5).
Prior to joining the Lindabury firm, Kerry practiced for several years at a well-known New Jersey law firm, where she handled transactional matters, administrative proceedings, and litigation, primarily involving health law and corporate transactions. She has provided counsel on for-profit and non-profit business formation, acquisitions, and dissolutions. She has handled residential and multimillion dollar commercial real estate transactions. She has represented clients in land use matters and lenders and borrowers in the negotiation of collateralization and financing agreements. Additionally, she has provided advice on ancillary environmental, insurance, landlord-tenant, licensure, procurement and tax issues associated with her transactional work.
Examples of Kerry's experience include counseling New Jersey's largest acute-care hospital in its procurement of a new operator and handling the due diligence process for the transaction; counseling a cleanroom sterilization company in its acquisition by a multimillion dollar publicly traded life sciences company and handling the due diligence process for the transaction; providing counsel on the transition of an investment manager for an OPEB trust; providing ancillary insurance advice, such as negotiation of OCIP and CCIP insurance policies in the public procurement process; and counseling a mineral dealer in the negotiation of a multijurisdictional commission agreement and drafting the agreement. Kerry also has been appointed by the Superior Court of New Jersey to represent clients in estate settlement and incapacity proceedings and to serve as the administrator of the Probate Early Settlement Panel for Warren County.
Separate from her transactional practice, Kerry has represented clients in various administrative proceedings, such as an action before the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities where she provided counsel on the CEF-EE energy proceedings. She enjoys working with entrepreneurial clients who aim to improve the community and environment and assisting them in making their individual and professional goals a reality.
