Chris represents numerous and diverse clients in corporate/mergers and acquisitions, business and transactional matters, and financing and capital formation, and assists with many other legal concerns.

Chris prides himself on his ability to "partner" with clients and add value by taking a practical, results-oriented approach and viewing each engagement from a businessperson's perspective. He believes one of the keys to providing the best legal representation is knowing a client's specific business, industry and strategic plan. His focus is on client service, creativity and results.

Chris's practice focuses primarily on domestic and international business, transactional, corporate and securities matters, including: organization/formation/startup and management issues; debt and equity financing including public and private securities offerings; mergers and acquisitions; joint ventures; real estate transactions; manufacturing and supply chain transactions; andfranchise/dealer/distributor issues. Industries served include manufacturing, technology, biotech, agribusiness, venture capital, private equity/investment banking and energy, among others.
