2021 Leaders in Law Honoree: Intellectual Property Attorney of the Year

K&L Gates

Christina Goodrich is an intellectual property litigator in the Los Angeles office of K&L Gates LLP – a  fully-integrated full service global law firm. She has experience litigating complex civil cases in federal trial and appellate courts across the nation.  Goodrich has trial experience in the International Trade Commission on a large patent infringement case and first chair arbitration experience in a complex and lengthy action in which she and her team secured a complete defense verdict.  She has consistently held numerous important leadership roles at the firm over the past 10 years, including Intellectual Property Litigation Practice Group coordinator, co-chair of the Los Angeles Women in the Profession committee, member of the firmwide Women in the Profession Committee, inaugural member and co-chair of the Global Associate Liaison Committee, and co-chair of the Los Angeles Associates Group.  

Goodrich’s involvement in these leadership roles, while managing a busy litigation practice, belies her dedication to excellence, invocation, and mentorship.  While still an associate, she worked quickly to take over and co-chair the Los Angeles Women in the Profession committee to re-invigorate the group, increase individual investment, promote development, and support women in the Los Angeles office.  She continues such dedication in all of her leadership roles, including through initiatives designed to increase the recruitment, development, retention, and promotion of women and diverse individuals practicing in intellectual property.  She believes in mentorship and development that pushes each individual to uncovering and developing their strengths.
