Kathleen Adda, Esq. is an attorney admitted to both the Paris and the New York State Bars. She is also, incidentally, a legal translator and an agent in real estate transactions.
She studied in France as well as in the United States and graduated in: Private Law (Bachelor’s degree) and Business Law (Master’s degree) from Pantheon-Assas University; Financial Law (Master’s degree) from La Sorbonne University; Common Law (Master’s degree) from Paris XII University; and, American Law (LL.M) from Cornell Law School, an Ivy League University located in the State of New York.
After training at renowned French law firms, such as Darrois Villey Maillot Brochier and De Pardieu Brocas Maffei, she then worked for several years as an associate at EY Société d’avocats, a member law firm of the EY Global Network. There, she developed expertise in corporate, M&A, and financial law.
Building on her various academic and professional experiences, she later founded the law firm KAB Legal in order to be able to put all her skills to the benefit of her clients and thus represent them in the best way.

– Corporate law,
– Mergers and acquisitions law,
– Financial law,

KAB Legal also acts as an agent in real
In this context, the firm can assist its
clients throughout the entire process of
buying, selling, or renting any real estate
property (from researching or putting up
for sale/rent to drafting and signing the
contemplated contract, through showings
as well as marketing).
The benefits of using this service are that attorneys are bound by attorney-client privilege, that they are trained to provide legal advice, that they are qualified to draft the contemplated legal acts (e.g., sale and purchase agreement), and that they are able to defend their clients in the event of a dispute.
KAB Legal also provides legal translation services to both fellow attorneys and clients.
Indeed, not only is Kathleen Adda, Esq. an
attorney admitted to both the Paris and the
New York State Bars (which implies that
she masters both the French and the
Anglo-American legal terminology just as
well as the underlying legal concepts), but
she also has significant experience in
legal translation as she has had the
opportunity to translate a contract law
textbook as well as numerous legal
documents during her career.
The fees are set in agreement with the client, prior to any action being taken, and must be (except in case of emergency or impossibility) the subject of a written agreement which notably specifies the amount of, or the method of determining, the fees covering the foreseeable diligence as well as the various foreseen costs and disbursements.
They are determined based on legal criteria – such as the level of difficulty of the case, the foreseeable diligence, and the costs possibly incurred – and are generally charged on a fixed-fee or time-spent basis. Where appropriate, in addition, fees that are contingent on the result achieved or the service provided may also be provided for; this is notably the case in the context of a real estate transaction agency agreement. Besides, certain legal services with periodicity and regularity allow a subscription contract to be concluded (e.g., outsourced legal department).
