Morrison & Foerster’s diverse, LGBTQ+, and women lawyers hold key leadership positions throughout the firm. They serve on committees that define the firm’s strategy, run our global offices, and lead our best-in-class practices, including commercial litigation, intellectual property, corporate finance, private equity investments and buyouts, consumer products, retail, financial services, employment and labor, life sciences, outsourcing, and mergers and acquisitions.
Our lawyers are united in their passion for what they do and their dedication to our clients and communities. Each month we will feature one of our diverse, LGBTQ+, or women lawyers who calls MoFo home.
Christin Hill is a partner in MoFo’s San Francisco office and a member of the Securities Litigation, Enforcement, and White-Collar Defense Group. Christin has extensive experience representing clients in securities class actions and other complex civil litigation in both federal and state courts, as well as in government and internal investigations. Before joining the firm, Christin served as senior counsel at Uber Technologies, Inc. and also served as an assistant district attorney in the San Francisco District Attorney’s Office.
Why did you choose to make MoFo your professional home? I joined MoFo for two reasons. First, the firm has long been a leader in shareholder class action litigation. Joining MoFo meant working with some of the best practitioners in this space, like Jordan Eth and Anna Erickson White, who are two of the sharpest securities litigators around. It was an irresistible opportunity.
Second, I knew that MoFo was a place where attorneys of color thrive. For decades, MoFo leadership has worked hard to cultivate an environment where attorneys of color feel welcomed and valued. MoFo is not perfect — no firm is — but it is evident that valuing diversity is part of the firm’s DNA. The fact that I personally knew more than a handful of partners of color who were thriving at MoFo, like Alexis Amezcua, Josh Hill, and Eric Tate, showed me that I could be my authentic self at the firm and ultimately be successful.
We know our differences make us stronger. At Morrison & Foerster, we not only celebrate our differences, but call upon them to better serve our clients, communities, and teams.
Whether tackling complex disputes, winning high-stakes litigation for our clients, or leading the charge on landmark pro bono cases, our global team of litigators use their strengths to make a difference where it counts.
We are MoFo lawyers, leading the way.
