Christine, co-chair of Morrison & Foerster’s Securities Litigation, Enforcement, and White-Collar Defense Group, focuses her practice on investigations, white–collar criminal defense, and cross–border compliance matters. As a member of our Investigations + White–Collar Defense practice, she draws on her unique background as an internal advisor and as a federal prosecutor to anticipate roadblocks, devise strategies, and confidently advise her clients through complex and often bet–the–company situations. Christine has extensive experience overseeing investigations and cross–border compliance matters and focuses on anti–bribery and corruption, antitrust, competition, and export control.
Before joining MoFo, Christine led the development and implementation of the global compliance program for a Fortune 500 multinational corporation, where she served as vice president, head of international compliance. In that capacity, she conducted risk assessments for dozens of entities, which resulted in enacting necessary amendments to business workflows and policies. She was responsible for managing investigations and related litigation, reviewing policies and procedures, developing and delivering training modules, and ultimately reporting to the board of directors.
Prior to that role, Christine served as a federal prosecutor for the Southern District of New York and the Northern District of California, where she focused on investigating and prosecuting public corruption and criminal enterprises with an established hierarchy and command structure. She briefed criminal appeals before the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit and the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit.
