Orrick Adds Tech Company Employment Advisor in SoCal


  • Christina Bouchot has joined the firm as an employment partner based in Southern California.
  • She focuses on counseling tech companies on their employment strategies, including in M&A and other transactions.
  • Christina is one of 23 lateral partners Orrick has added to our holistic tech platform since the beginning of 2021 in 11 offices globally.
  • She joins from Goodwin Procter.
  • Orrick also announced today the addition to its SoCal team of Caroline Cherkassky, who advises founders, high growth tech companies and venture capital funds.

Christina brings a deep understanding of the employment needs of tech companies as they scale. While she focuses on counseling, she draws on experience as an employment litigator to help clients mitigate risk.

“Christina expands our ability to provide holistic, commercial advice to tech companies,” said Julie Totten, head of Orrick’s global employment practice. “She is immersed in the tech ecosystem and understands how essential talent is to our clients.”

“Orrick offers an incredibly exciting platform for me – combining a powerhouse employment practice with a phenomenal portfolio of tech companies in Southern California and globally,” said Christina.

Christina is active in the Hispanic National Bar Association and the Women Lawyers Association of Los Angeles.

Orrick’s employment team has been recognized four times as a Law360 Employment Practice Group of the Year, and last year was a finalist for American Lawyer Employment Litigation Department of the Year. The firm advises over 3,700 technology companies and 50 unicorns.
