  • Overview

    Christine’s civil litigation practice focuses on representing companies in all forms of business litigation. Whether the goal is to reach the courtroom or prevent litigation, Christine delivers efficient, zealous representation with an eye on the company’s bottom line. She has argued before state and federal courts relating to matters involving contractual disputes, corporate claims, intellectual property, procedural nuances, unsettled areas of law and more.

    Outside of the courtroom, Christine assists companies with day-to-day operations, including issue-spotting, advising on legal and regulatory decisions, drafting corporate documents and negotiating deals and settlements. Christine has also co-authored an article in the Community Bankers Association of Georgia’s newsletter.

    Representing a diverse range of businesses from national companies to entrepreneurs and locally owned companies, she has served as outside counsel for clients involved in the design, financial, medical and hospitality industry. Christine has advised companies on a variety of issues including trademark registration or infringement, nondisclosure agreements, corporate structure and purchase and sale agreements.

    Christine is conversational in Korean and is connected to the Asian business community through memberships with the Korean-American Bar Association of Georgia, the Georgia Asian Pacific American Bar Association and the Korean American Coalition.
