Of Counsel

Christina T. Wisdom

Christina Wisdom represents environmental, natural resources, and oil and gas clients throughout New Mexico and Texas on state and federal regulatory, legal, and legislative issues. Through her 20+ years of experience representing government and private sector clients, Christina has developed a common-sense approach to finding efficient and affordable solutions to suit her client’s most complex and nuanced issues.

On the regulatory front, Christina represents clients before state and federal environmental and natural resources agencies – including the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) – on rulemaking, permitting, compliance, and matters related to project development. As outside general counsel, Christina advises clients on legal considerations related to business and operations.

With over 25 years of legislative experience, Christina now focuses her legislative and lobbying practice on Strategies 360 (S360) – a full-service research, public affairs, and communications firm – where she provides all manner of government relations related to energy, water, and land in the Western United States.

Before starting her eponymous law firm in 2014, Christina served as Vice President and General Counsel at Texas Chemical Council (TCC) in Austin. For over seven years, she provided legal, legislative, and regulatory representation on all matters impacting the Texas chemical industry before the legislature and state and federal regulatory agencies, including rulemaking processes on behalf of the 80+ TCC member companies.

As a thought-leader in her industry, Christina often speaks before trade and professional organizations and Boards of Directors on legal, regulatory, and legislative issues impacting their industries. In 2011 and 2014, Christina served as an adjunct professor at The University of Texas School of Law, where she taught Texas Environmental and Administrative Law.

Originally from Texas, Christina earned her law degree from The University of Texas School of Law and her undergraduate degree in Political Science and History from Southwestern University. Before law school, Christina worked for U.S. Senator Phil Gramm in Washington, D.C., handling federal nominations and appointments under the Clinton Administration.

Christina is an active advocate for incarcerated women and has worked as a volunteer facilitator with Truth Be Told, an organization providing trauma-responsive programs to promote empowerment and break the cycle of incarceration.

Away from the office, Christina and her husband Rick enjoy exploring Santa Fe’s rich food and art culture, as well as hiking and fishing throughout New Mexico.
