About
I have always admired the small- and medium-sized business owner. These are men and women with a vision, who provide not only for themselves, but also for the people who work for them.

As in-house counsel, it is my responsibility to protect the business's legal interests, while also mitigating against legal risk. But this position also requires an amount of business savvy, as not every problem cannot (and should not) be solved with litigation. Each day offers new challenges and new opportunities to help the business achieve success.

In a nutshell: I help keep businesses in the business of doing business.

"Christopher's legal eye is keen and he brings a depth of knowledge on a variety of issues when it comes to negotiating MSAs with large organizations. It took a lot off our sales' teams plate bringing Christopher in and I feel like our business needs were carefully considered in every negotiation."
