I met Chris when he was overseeing a team of lawyers in one of the largest IP cases in the United States. He brings tremendous knowledge, skill, and professional commitment to every case and every client. Chris is a proven leader in our profession and an example of what every litigation lawyer should strive to be: skilled, honest, tough, highly experienced, and committed to the best interests of his clients. Highest recommendation.

I was sued by a former employer and need a legal team that could effectively defend me and clear my name in a technology dispute. I couldn't have found a better team than Chris Banys and Richard Lin, and also I couldn't be more pleased with the resolution of my case. From day one, I was impressed with their professionalism, empathy, sense of ethics, and patience as they worked with me to get the information they needed to represent my interests. I really can't provide more detail about the case specifics, but trust me, when faced with an aggressive adversary hoping to steamroll over you, you definitely want Mr. Banys on your side in the courtroom.

Chris Banys was very knowledgeable in this area. He helped me throughout the whole dispute, advised me of my rights and did everything he could to keep the cost down. He started off by reviewing my leases, and sent my landlord various letters. When we filed suit he did everything that he could to move things along. Chris was very aggressive in his approaches because I knew that from prior experiences with my landlord that he had to be. When the case settled Chris got me everything that I deserved and I didn’t have to give my landlord anything. It was a great win and I would always hire him for any matter that comes up. He treated me like part of his family and kept me posted all the time. He is a great fighter and knows what he is doing.
