Katherine M. Pitz, JD, BSME

Prior to joining HFZ, I worked as a licensed professional engineer designing mechanical systems for new builds and renovation projects. While working in the construction field as a mechanical engineer, I was able to experience first-hand the impact new technologies have on the community. For example, during the global pandemic I worked with new technologies to improve indoor air quality and thus reduce the spread of Covid. These experiences as a design engineer helped cultivate my passion for new and emerging technologies.


At HFZ, I use this passion to help advance our client’s goals. Additionally, I draw upon my real-world engineering experience to further understand the scope of our client’s inventions, and I am continually excited to learn from the inventors.
