Christina Pyle Engle, (Notre Dame 2011) and Joel Griffiths (KU, 2012) have both been named partner at their respective law firms!

At Husch Blackwell, Christina assists clients with complex commercial disputes and class actions at both the state and federal level.

She is involved in all aspects of litigation from the initial filing or defense of a lawsuit through trial and, when necessary, appeal. She focuses her practice on business litigation, and has litigated matters involving business torts, contract disputes, consumer fraud, professional malpractice, employment, construction and design, premises liability and insurance. As a part of the firm’s franchise and distribution team, she regularly advises and defends franchisors against claims by franchisees and third parties.

Meanwhile, as a new partner at Leverage Law Group, Joel concentrates his practice on the various federal tax issues associated with tax credit transactions. With an education and previous experience focusing on federal income taxation, Joel is especially suited to ensure that these transactions comply with the Internal Revenue Code and other applicable tax laws.

Congratulations to Christina and Joel on their accomplishments!
