Meet Christina, neuroscience researcher turned trusted counselor for litigation and life sciences.
Here’s why you’ll enjoy working with her.
Before entering law, Christina was a dedicated researcher in the fields of neurosurgery and neuropharmacology and was published in the Journal of Neuroscience. She now puts her industry-specific, technical knowledge to work for her biotechnology, medical device, health information technology, and pharmaceutical clients, including startups, as they navigate the modern-day health care system’s legal and regulatory challenges.
Christina is passionate about advocating for her clients in state and federal courts, before administrative agencies, and in the dispute resolution process, and has experience in a wide variety of complex civil litigation matters. Christina is also very experienced in preparing appellate briefs. During law school, Christina clerked for the Honorable James E. Duggan of the New Hampshire Supreme Court, where she gained an insider’s perspective on the appellate process. But no matter what stage of the legal process her clients are in, Christina’s adaptability, attention to detail, and honest practical approach (with necessary humor) make her an ideal partner.
In May of 2016, Christina was accepted into the Leadership Greater Manchester (LGM) Program through the Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce. LGM is a program designed to recognize and nurture existing leadership talents from diverse sectors of the local community. Chosen members have demonstrated a strong commitment to the greater Manchester community, achieved high levels of leadership in their perspective spheres of influence, and are capable of assuming greater responsibility in the future.
But that’s not all. Christina is also very experienced in:
- Professional malpractice and licensing defense
- Medical malpractice and products liability
- Environmental contamination litigation
- Contract procurement and related bid protests and litigation
- Government and legislative relations
In her former life, Christina was:
- A member of the Daniel Webster Scholar Program, the only rigorous, practice-based honors and bar licensing program in the nation, where she was admitted to the New Hampshire Bar Association prior to graduation from law school
- Law clerk/extern to the Honorable James E. Duggan of the New Hampshire Supreme Court
- Award-winning moot court competitor and coach in the Giles Sutherland Rich Memorial Moot Court Competition in patent law
- Published researcher at Boston Children’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School focused on techniques for neuronal regeneration after stroke
When Christina isn’t working, she is…
