Mackinlee assists with regulatory analysis for corporate transactions, primarily in the energy sector.

Mackinlee always knew a legal career would be a perfect fit for her logical, analytical mind. A problem solver who thrives on collaboration, she was drawn to corporate and transactional work, and she loves the challenge of assembling the puzzle pieces of a perfect deal.

During both her undergraduate and law school years, Mackinlee interned with a renewable energy company which worked with investors and developers to maximize the economics of renewable energy projects. The experience fostered a passion for renewable energy as Mackinlee served on developer’s and investor’s counsel teams for wind farm acquisitions and solar photovoltaic systems. She’s eager to work in the industry in the midst of the ongoing energy transition, and she’s excited to watch the development of renewable energy forms over the course of her career.

Prior to joining the firm as a full associate, Mackinlee spent a season as a summer associate assisting the renewable energy team with transactional work. She was especially enthusiastic about the national scope of Husch Blackwell’s practice and about the opportunity to collaborate with attorneys across the country. Today, Mackinlee handles the regulatory aspects of transaction due diligence for energy projects and is building a reputation as a trustworthy, hard-working professional who gets the job done.

Mackinlee is a runner who likes to relax through cooking. She’s a fan of meal delivery services that help her make elaborate dinners easily.

However, most of Mackinlee’s free time is devoted to her dog, a Shih Tzu/Poodle mix named Toby. Toby is at his happiest whenever he’s near Mackinlee.
