Portrait of Kristine Forderer
in San Francisco

20th Floor
San Francisco, CA 94111

What I do:
I defend companies on the cutting-edge of their industries in complex disputes as they navigate the intersection of old laws and new technology. I also advise clients on environmental compliance, and go to bat for them in coverage disputes with their insurance carriers.

Why Cooley:
We are excited about our clients and the work we do. I have never met a more dedicated group of people or a less “lawyer-like” group of lawyers.

What my clients value:
We understand not just the law, but the client’s business and how the legal piece fits into the bigger puzzle.
