    About the Speaker:

    Kristina’s passion is to provide business owners with resources traditionally only available to large companies.  She is dedicated to providing a team to support the leadership role of the business owner that directly leads to the success of his/her company. 

    As a result, Kristina founded Maritczak Legal Group (“MLG”) which provides general counsel services for growth-oriented companies.  In serving as “outside” general counsel, she provides guidance on most issues with a focus on Risk Management, Compliance, Human Resources and, fraud and employment investigations on behalf of employers.

    In 2018, Kristina founded Align which serves as a business consulting firm that helps growing businesses, with a focus on helping woman-owned businesses.  Align conducts risk assessments to determine the areas in which a company needs improved and policies and procedures to ameliorate risk.  As HR is one of the biggest risks to a company, Align has launched a virtual Human Resources system that can be customized to a company’s internal onboarding practices and be compliant.
