Christina C. Nethero

Partner

A corporate transactional attorney, Christina has extensive experience in mergers and acquisitions, banking and finance, private equity, securities and general corporate law. She routinely represents institutional investors, private equity funds, closely-held companies, publicly-traded corporations and entrepreneurial start-ups in a range of industries with securities offerings, equity and debt financings, mergers and acquisitions, general commercial transactions, and internal corporate governance matters. In addition, she routinely advises clients with regard to structuring, negotiating and completing a wide variety of complex commercial transactions, including:

  • Acquiring and selling businesses
  • Private equity investments
  • Drafting business and finance contracts and agreements
  • Preparing legal opinions
  • Conducting due diligence
  • Preparing disclosure documents in connection with various types of business transactions

Christina’s interest in business and business transactions while pursuing an undergraduate degree in business administration, led her to take a business law class where she discovered that she enjoyed the legal aspect of business transactions. She then pursued a law degree and MBA at Stetson University College of Law in order to become a corporate transactional lawyer. While in law school, Christina participated in Stetson University College of Law's Honors Colloquium. She was also an associate for the Stetson Law Review and served as a Judicial Intern for the Honorable Susan C. Bucklew, Senior United States District Judge for the Middle District of Florida. Additionally, she earned Book Awards in Contracts I and International Business Transactions and was a teaching fellow for Legal Research and Writing.

Christina prides herself on being readily available and a trusted advisor to her clients, helping them negotiate and bring transactions to a close; traits she developed prior to law school through her studies and internships at Salesforce.com and Raymond James Bank where she learned to analyze issues from a business perspective as well as from a legal perspective.

When not assisting clients, Christina enjoys spending time with her family and participating in activities with her husband and son, including reading, swimming, and biking. She is also actively involved with her church where she serves on the lecture and children’s room committees.
