Background

Summary

Chris litigates business disputes of all shapes, sizes and complexities, from large, multi-party cases, as well as smaller, two party disputes, in both state and federal court. These matters have involved shareholder and lender liability disputes, health care collections and malpractice, hospital and nursing home negligence and elder abuse, breach of contract (including promissory note and guaranty cases), common law and securities fraud, tax appeals, wrongful termination and other employment issues, products liability, and intellectual property. He has also represented clients in real estate and stock sale transactions.

Chris also is an accomplished neutral who has resolved countless disputes through the mediation and arbitration processes. He began developing his skills studying under one of the more accomplished educators in this area in the country, Professor Edwin Greenebaum, in law school. He has further honed his skills through his participation in numerous seminars, and has resolved numerous disputes as a retained, private mediator as well as through settlement conferences as a Judge Pro Tempore for the Maricopa County Superior Court. He is diligent in his efforts to bring matters to resolution, as evidenced by his high success rate in doing so. In 2011, Chris received the honorable distinction of being named by the AZ Business magazine to the 2011, 2102 and 2013 "Top Lawyers Lists" for alternative dispute resolution.

Finally, Chris has successfully litigated various claims before the U.S. Bankruptcy Court on behalf of debtors, creditors, and trustees, and was named to the AZ Business magazine's 2011 "Top Lawyers List" for bankruptcy law as well.

Practice focuses: Business litigation, with extensive experience in the lending and health care fields, and alternative dispute resolution.
