Christina Marshall, a former corporate partner at Haynes and Boone, LLP, is returning to the firm following a stint as executive vice president and general counsel at Chalak Mitra Group of Companies, a Dallas-based group of investment companies focused in the hospitality and sports industries.
Marshall will serve as a partner in Haynes and Boone’s Mergers and Acquisitions Practice Group, where she will focus on advising companies in connection with middle market mergers and acquisitions and other corporate strategic transactions.
“We are excited to have Christina return to Haynes and Boone and help us expand our middle market corporate strategic acquisitions practice,” said M&A Partner Jennifer Wisinski. “Having worked in-house, Christina has a keen understanding of what clients expect from their lawyers. She is also a proven mentor who can help us train and develop our younger lawyers as she leads deal teams through the acquisition process.”
Marshall handled a full gamut of legal and business issues at Chalak Mitra Group of Companies, including the purchase and sale of assets, management of the group’s litigation docket, and oversight of several departments including human resources and risk management. She later served as a principal at Dallas law firm Keating Marshall PLLC, where she advised clients on M&A matters and other business transactions, including joint ventures, securities law issues, and debt and equity offerings.
“I have missed Haynes and Boone since I left and am very excited to return. I have many close colleagues and a deep appreciation for the firm’s client-first and teamwork culture,” Marshall said. “I look forward to furthering Haynes and Boone’s commitment to partnering with clients to provide the tailored, practical and comprehensive business solutions that I know companies covet.”
