Good Ending Result
I hired Chris to handle the negotiations for a copyright infringement dispute and was very happy with the end result. Chris developed a strategy that enabled us to settle the dispute before the lawsuit progressed to having to file a response to the complaint or discovery. Chris offers practical advice and aggressively fights for your interests - I would definitely hire Chris again or recommend him to others

Hired him to defend me against a claim in litigation alleging breach of trustee duties under a trust from 1991. Successful end to the litigation before filing responses to discovery. Great job. Reasonable cost. Very efficient.

Litigation Attorney | Jan 26
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"After working closely with Chris for 2 years on a large-scale, multi-state, business dispute involving a mix of complex contract, IP and antitrust issues, I can confidently vouch for Chris as one of the most effective and efficient (read "cost-effective") business dispute (and dispute avoidance) counselors I've ever worked with. Chris is in the class of those top notch lawyers able to bring deep litigation, deal and negotiating expertise to the table to help meet and solve (and sometimes define) his clients' business objectives and problems (large and small), but at far less cost than others."
Litigation Attorney | Jan 24
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"Chris is an exceptional attorney. I had the privilege of working on a complicated licensing/trade secrets dispute in Federal Court with Chris as co-counsel. He is insightful, prepared and an aggressive advocate. I am very comfortable endorsing Chris and look forward to our next opportunity to work together."
Litigation Attorney | Jul 01
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Chris is considered to be one of the brightest attorneys in Charlotte. If you are in the market for an attorney who will work tirelessly on your behalf then you owe it to yourself to meet with him."
