I had the privilege of working with Chris while he was at Alston & Bird LLP. He always worked on very complex litigation matters for very large and sophisticated clients with a lot at stake and obtained great results. He is very knowledgeable, hard working, and creative, which helped him obtain those great results, but his calm, levelheaded, and thoughtful demeanor made working with him -- and getting to know him personally -- a pleasure. I highly recommend Chris.
