Professional Profile

Christina Canino’s intellectual property practice is focused on patent litigation at all levels – U.S. District Court, International Trade Commission and post grant proceedings in the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. She enjoys working on complex technology because it allows her to utilize her engineering background in a legal setting. 

Christina was a summer associate at Erise while earning her Juris Doctor from the University of Colorado Law School in Boulder. She collaborated on inter partes review petitions and drafted legal memorandums.

Also during law school, Christina worked at Colorado Law’s Entrepreneurial Law Clinic, where she drafted contracts and intellectual property agreements for start-up companies in the Denver-Boulder area. She founded a non-profit organization, HumanKind Network, that provides free tutoring and food bank grocery delivery to community members most impacted by the rippling effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.

While earning her undergraduate degree in chemical and biological engineering with a minor in biomedical engineering at Colorado State University in Fort Collins, Christina designed and implemented biomass hydrolysis research aimed at increasing the sustainability of algae in the development of biofuels. She also worked as a process and automation engineering co-operative at New Belgium Brewing, helping to recontrol brewery operations.
