Christie Grymes Thompson chairs the firm’s Advertising and Marketing and Consumer Product Safety practice groups. Named the 2016 Washington, D.C. advertising “Lawyer of the Year” by Best Lawyers, Christie focuses her practice on consumer protection matters, including advertising, competitor challenges, promotions and product safety. Christie advises clients on all aspects of regulatory compliance, including counsel pertaining to the statutes and regulations enforced by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and state attorneys general. Ranked nationally as a leading practitioner in the Advertising: Transactional & Regulatory area by Chambers USA, sources tell Chambers that Christie delivers “outstanding technical industry knowledge” and is “practical, responsive, efficient and fun to work with.” Christie advises national advertisers and consumer products manufacturers on how to keep regulators, competitors and consumers from knocking on their door with a legal challenge and, if they do, she helps them to address and defend the marketing claims at issue. To that end, Christie reviews advertisements and marketing materials for all media, including television, print and social media, to determine compliance with relevant regulations and the risk of challenge.
