Biography

Christina serves Verrill's business clients on a wide variety of corporate transactions. Her work focuses primarily on mergers and acquisitions and private equity investments, securities offerings, and negotiation of commercial agreements.

Christina particularly enjoys seeing the benefits of her legal work come to life — whether in the form of the successful launch of a new company following a private offering or the growth of a long-term client through a strategic acquisition.

Prior to joining Verrill, Christina spent three and a half years in the corporate and financial services practice of a large New York law firm, including a summer-long secondment to the in-house corporate governance group of an international insurance company.

In her time away from the office, Christina enjoys practicing calligraphy, baking treats to share with her co-workers, and exploring New England.
