Christina Hansen Recognized by the Wichita Business Journal as a Woman Who Leads in Legal
Stinson LLP is pleased to announce that attorney Christina Hansen has been selected as a Woman Who Leads in Legal by the Wichita Business Journal.
The Women Who Lead: Legal Services recognizes top women professionals who work in legal services while highlighting their careers and providing insight into what it takes to work in the legal field.
Hansen started her career at the firm about seven years ago, having spent the first two years of her legal career as a research attorney for a Kansas Court of Appeals judge. Prior to law school, though, she worked for several years in print journalism. "That experience has served me well, as it shared a lot of elements with the work I do as an attorney: Investigating facts and trying to fill in the gaps, interviewing people and telling their stories, and examining issues from all possible angles," Hansen said.
Hansen credits Partners Lynn Preheim, Stephanie Scheck and Alisa Nickel Ehrlich as her mentors from the firm, saying "I've learned so much from the way they practice law, and I strive to match their skill and integrity." She also mentions friend and former colleague, Anna Ritchie, who "similarly took me under her wing and always had my back."
Hansen gives advice to women wanting to enter the legal field, telling them to "find your own style of practice and embrace it," and notes that her favorite part of being an attorney is getting to know her clients and their businesses because "knowing what makes a client tick and understanding their short and long-term goals is critical to providing the best advice and service."
Hansen's practice focuses on complex litigation, including product liability, employment law, business litigation and trade secret misappropriation. She represents clients facing charges in front of the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the Kansas Human Rights Commission and similar administrative agencies, and clients in state and federal court. Outside of litigation, Hansen advises employers on a range of workplace issues, such as employee handbooks and employment/independent contractor agreements.
