Kacie E. Kergides is an associate in Montgomery McCracken’s Sexual Misconduct Liability Practice Group as well as its Higher Education Industry Group. Kacie concentrates her practice on Title IX investigations and advising, institutional response to sex and/or gender-based harassment and misconduct, and the adjudication of student, employee and management disputes. Recognizing the sensitive nature of sexual misconduct claims, Kacie provides rapid crises management and does so while maintaining trauma informed practices and ensuring confidentiality. She has experience in all aspects of Title IX and sexual misconduct liability from analyzing and implementing written policies to conducting proactive investigations of alleged sexual assault and defending those matters in litigation.

Kacie is also a member of the Catastrophic Sports Injury and Defense Practice Group. Kacie has considerable experience investigating and defending  traumatic brain injury (TBI) cases and catastrophic sports injury matters arising out of negligence theories in the sports’ context. In addition to handling investigations and litigation, Kacie also counsels athletes, schools, and sports organizations on sports-related injuries, provides guidance on the management of sport-related injuries, and advises these institutions on minimizing and managing risk. She currently serves as a co-editor of Sports Medicine and Law, a quarterly newsletter that is a complete source for news, case summaries, articles, and strategies concerning legal issues arising at the professional, collegiate, high school, and amateur sport levels.

Kacie has recently presented on recent federal changes to Title IX regulations and the specific role of advisor in the institutional setting. Kacie also has presented on minimizing risk exposure and compliance-related issues at various law schools and undergraduate universities including Villanova School of Law and the University of Michigan, and before various sports organizations, including the National Athletic Trainers’ Association, the College Athletic Trainers’ Association, and the Eastern Athletic Trainers’ Association.

Kacie graduated from Princeton University, where she was a member of the Women’s Soccer Team. She earned her law degree from Villanova University’s Charles Widger School of Law, where she served as a student works editor for the Villanova Law Review and a legal-fellow for the Jeffrey S.
