Christine is a partner at Blake, Cassels & Graydon LLP and co-heads the firm’s National Technology Group. Her practice focusses on commercial transactions involving information technology and intellectual property.
Christine’s recent focus has been on establishing Blakes as the leading law firm for the newest tech innovation sectors such as artificial intelligence and blockchain.
“Start-ups and early-stage companies can form the basis for a new economy in Canada,” comments Christine, “providing an opportunity for Canada to move away from older paradigms and reinvent ourselves as innovators.” And when those companies work with Nitro, she adds, “they can access expert advice, right from the experts.”
Christine’s work includes technology-based commercial deals, including strategic alliances, cloud computing arrangements, system implementation projects and intellectual property licensing in a broad range of industries, including banking.
