Christine’s primary practice is intellectual property litigation. She assists clients in protecting and enforcing their patent and trademark rights prior to litigation and, when necessary, in district court or in front of the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board (TTAB). She also has significant involvement in product liability matters, commercial disputes, and discrimination and personal injury actions.
In all of these areas, Christine knows the value of resolving matters swiftly and favorably. Negotiations, appropriately timed motions, and effective participation in arbitration and mediation are all leveraged, as appropriate, to avoid the costs and delays that trial can bring. She also knows that sensitivity to the client’s goals and protection of its brand and reputation are absolutely essential when pursuing or resolving disputes.
Christine pays close attention to interpersonal dynamics when working with clients and strives to understand all aspects of their business. This helps her usher a case, the client, or witnesses and employees through the discovery process, or the preparation for arbitration or mediation, with minimal disruption of their business operations.
