Christine E. Coverdale is a Senior Attorney at Nicolson Law Group and is an experienced civil litigator and trial lawyer. Christine has practiced law for over 16 years and is licensed and admitted to practice in all State and Federal Courts in California.

Over the course of her career, Christine acquired significant experience litigating and trying media, entertainment, business and intellectual property disputes in the motion picture, music publishing, gaming, advertising, sports, and technology arenas. As the intellectual property landscape changed, so did the nature of Christine’s litigation experience, leading her to branch out into representing partnerships, corporations, and entrepreneurs in a wide variety of complex commercial, business, and real estate litigation, including disputes involving claims for breach of contract, fraud, breach of fiduciary duty, construction defect, regulatory and statutory compliance, unfair competition and business torts, negligence, property law, insurance defense, securities fraud, and minority shareholder claims and corporate derivative actions.

Perhaps it’s Christine’s prior experience in the IT industry that gives Christine an edge over many other lawyers. She worked first as a programmer, then as a systems and financial analyst. Although the technology has changed since Christine’s early days in IT and finance, her real-world experience gives her a very unique and analytical perspective and insight into her clients’ litigation matters, and enables her to offer a blend of legal experience and business strategy to complement her management of the client’s case.

Christine brings a well-balanced perspective to all of her legal pursuits, having found herself on both sides of the table in various criminal and civil cases. Christine’s approach, regardless of the subject matter, remains the same: she provides the client with steadfast advocacy and authentic analysis of the claims and defenses; consistently advises the clients as to the costs and benefits of litigation; negotiates professionally and in good faith; and above all else, ethically represents her clients’ interests from onset to resolution.

Christine attended Whittier College School of Law, graduating in December, 1997. Christine received her Bachelor of Arts in French and English Composition from Rutgers University in 1987. Christine is a member of numerous organizations including the Los Angeles County Bar Association, the Red Cross and the Global Fund for Women.
