Christina Kurow is a commercial litigator who represents clients in a variety of complex commercial disputes and litigation in state and federal courts nationwide.
A large part of my practice has included litigating cases involving trade secret misappropriation, violations of restrictive covenants, breaches of contract and fiduciary duties and corporate raiding.
Another major focus of mine includes defending pharmaceutical and life sciences companies in products and pharmacy liability actions involving personal injury and wrongful death claims.
I have also defended companies in a variety of labor and employment cases filed in state and federal courts, the Illinois Human Rights Commission (IHRC), and the Illinois Department of Human Rights (IDHR).
Specifically, I have experience defending lawsuits involving claims of age, sex, gender, and disability discrimination; constructive and wrongful discharge; wage-and-hour; and claims regarding the Family & Medical Leave Act (FMLA).
I have also represented institutions and individuals in various guardianship matters. My work has included obtaining temporary and plenary guardianship appointments and representing guardians of the person and/or the estate.
As technology continues to evolve, I am paying particular attention to how companies can best protect their trade secrets and confidential information from misappropriation and how discovery practices must adapt in light of the changes in the ways data may be stored.
