Biography

Christine Kormanik is a consummate wordsmith, helping her business and tax planning clients document their agreements in clear and precise language. Her high-quality and dependable work has made her the “go-to” resource for preparing and amending agreements to conform to a lenders' special purpose entity provisions. 

Christine is often relied upon and embraces the challenge of "fixing" partnership and LLC agreements to reflect various changes in personnel, assets, and other matters occurring over time. Her practice encompasses the full spectrum of transactional matters, including the formation, financing, reorganization, conversion, and dissolution of joint ventures, partnerships, limited liability companies, and corporations, and real property and general business transactions.

A prolific writer, Christine has authored three chapters in the California Business Law Deskbook, published by Thomson Reuters/West, that summarize California law applicable to general and limited partnerships.

Christine is passionate about Krav Maga, and is a second degree black belt who teaches the self-defense system and techniques to both children and adults. She also served her community as a volunteer for the Huntington Beach Therapeutic Riding Association.
