Chris Berney has been and continues to be a valuable and irreplaceable asset to me personally and to over a dozen of my companies for almost a decade. My company, Cornetta Enterprises, and I personally do not think of Mr. Berney as a "hired gun" or a lawyer we retain from time to time, but as part of our team, as a part of our company and personally I think of Chris and consider him a friend.
Take it from someone who, I would bet my bottom dollar, has been a party to or in some way involved in more litigation in Georgia then just about anyone over the last ten years, I know what it’s like to work with good practitioners and with bad ones. Chris is as good as they come and I would trust no other for the types of services he provides us.
Chris and his law firm handle all of Cornetta Enterprises, INC. and associated companies’ legal issues. At one time Cornetta Enterprises, INC. managed and or employed over three hundred employees and contractors and it was Mr. Berney and company who handled all NDA’s, Non Competes, Leases, Employee agreements and hand books, incorporations and corporate structure plus many other things I would only trust with him right down to delicate negotiations the hinge on a fine thread.
Most importantly, and irreplaceable is the advise I get when I consult with Chris. He has the back bone to tell me when he thinks I’m wrong, and is humble enough to admit when he is. Without question Chris and his team are the right people for many tasks!

I had no idea what I was doing when I contacted Chris for help in how to start a business in order to purchase another company. Chris identified my options on how to go about forming a business, took charge on making it happen, and guided me throughout the entire process of purchasing the assets of the other company.

I refer clients only to lawyers that I would hire for my own affairs. Chris fits that bill. He's sharp and compassionate. He is effective, responsive and his billing practices are ethical to the letter. I have referred many clients to Chris because he treats them right, and they appreciate it. I recommend Chris to anyone seeking a Georgia-based business attorney.

I have worked with Chris on a number of corporate acquisitions and other matters over the years and have come to know Chris as one of the most competent and professional lawyers in the Atlanta legal community. I have referred a number of clients to Chris for representation when our firm has a conflict and always get a positive report back from the client. Additionally, I have referred a number of my own clients to Chris for litigation of corporate and contract matters. Chris is someone I can refer a client to and be sure he will provide prompt, legally effective and cost-effective service.
