Before joining Major, Lindsey & Africa, Christine worked within the consulting arm of one of the “Big Four.” There, she consulted with international organizations to evaluate corporate records and management systems to ensure compliance with U.S. rules and regulations. Specifically, Global Custody Agreements, Derivatives Management Agreements, ISDA records, Lease Agreements and other documents identifying corporate assets. She was responsible for delivering a precise and complete analysis of securities records and analyzing her clients’ data reporting platforms to ensure full regulatory compliance.
Before moving into the consulting realm, Christine practiced high-volume, high-stakes litigation in New York at the trial and appellate level. In-house, she managed mortgage banking litigation and lender liability in complex mortgage foreclosures across the U.S. While in private practice, she litigated complex commercial matters including toxic torts, insurance defense, strict product liability, premises liability and contract disputes. Throughout her career as an attorney, she has experienced firsthand the movement within the legal community toward a more technology-reliant manner of practice. It is these experiences and her personable approach to any new challenge that makes her an invaluable asset to client endeavors.
