Experience
Christina Rieck Loukas practices in the firm’s business and commercial litigation group, and handles a wide variety of disputes, including shareholder or limited partner disputes, real estate litigation, banking and securities law litigation, construction litigation, and general commercial contract matters. In her practice, Christina also addresses and resolves the unique issues that can arise in connection with low-income housing tax credit developments.

Christina has extensive experience at all levels of the litigation process, and represents a wide variety of clients, from Fortune 500 companies to small businesses and individuals, and her experience spans a variety of industries, including banking, real estate, construction, and energy, among others. A skilled and creative negotiator, Christina is dedicated to achieving favorable outcomes for her clients, either as the result of trial, settlement or arbitration.

Christina volunteers her time through pro bono legal work and focuses on assisting those who have improperly been denied government benefits, stemming from her work with the Government Benefits Division of the Legal Aid Society of Minneapolis while in law school. Recently, Christina successfully represented a client through an appeal of a denial of Medical Assistance benefits, working tirelessly to challenge a series of denials, eventually filing an appeal before the district court and ultimately negotiating a settlement that ensured her client would receive the benefits to which she was entitled and would be able to remain in her home. Christina also recently assisted a client to reverse the Social Security Administration’s denial of a disability claim, taking the claim through the hearings process and achieving a fully favorable decision on behalf of her client.

Christina is committed to advancing and supporting women in the legal profession, through her work with Minnesota Women Lawyers and the Minnesota Mother Attorneys Association. While in law school, Christina was a member of the University of Chicago Law Review.
