Krista focuses her practice on providing general counsel and transactional support to key esports organizations, talent, and institutions. She emphasizes the need to balance legal considerations against practical, business considerations and other non-legal concerns.
Before joining ESG Law, Krista represented corporate clients for seven years at Peterson, Logren & Kilbury, P.A. in St. Paul Minnesota – making partner after just five years. Her experience there spanned litigation and transactional work, the routine negotiation of six-figure deals, and the counsel of local esports tournament organizers. She served as outside general counsel to multiple national companies in a variety of industries with a focus on mitigating risk in the realms of employment law and workplace disputes.
Krista’s experiences with gaming significantly predate her legal career. A dedicated gamer her entire life, Krista assisted with the production of local gaming tournaments, authored articles for gaming blogs, and incorporated the study of laws surrounding online gaming and virtual property into her law school education.
Krista also contributes to esports op-eds for ESPN, appears on esports talk shows, and speaks about esports at conferences across the country.
