As a business, privacy, and real estate attorney, Chris routinely navigates complex issues with a pragmatic eye. He thrives as the architect of a deal, resolving the various issues that arise throughout a transaction’s life cycle, and working with his clients to maximize value post-closing. Chris’ ability to anticipate issues and build consensus makes him a particularly effective transactional attorney.
Currently, Chris’ practice emphasizes transactions involving business and real estate objectives that must be achieved in tandem. Many of his recent matters involve mergers and acquisitions with complex regulatory, credentialing, and contingent payment issues, often including private equity investments in health care and other regulated industries. Outside of healthcare, Chris routinely handles both buy and sell-side mergers and acquisitions in various other industries such as manufacturing, food and beverage, and technology.
In addition to his M&A practice, Chris is equally at home advising clients on general corporate affairs related to formation, governance, restructuring, data privacy, commercial contracts, and regulatory compliance. Having also represented buyers, sellers, developers, landlords, and tenants, Chris likewise handles his clients' real estate needs, whether incidental to a larger transaction or primary to the objective.
As a former business owner, Chris is uniquely equipped to offer legal strategy grounded in business reality when the letter of the law falls short. Regardless of the industry or transaction, Chris’ ability to view matters through the lens of his client set him apart as an attorney. Whether the deal requires decisive advocacy or a consensus-based approach, Chris never loses sight of a client’s objectives and exhausts all options to deliver the best possible results.
