Chris focuses his practice on complex commercial and patent litigation and licensing in a variety of technical fields, including the semiconductor, specialty chemical and pharmaceutical areas. He has litigated in both federal and state court in a variety of venues, and also handles inter partes reviews before the Patent and Trial Appeal Board of the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. 

Chris devotes a portion of his time to pro bono matters. Chris first-chaired an appeal before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit, which resulted in reversal of the district court and a grant of a new trial for the pro bono client on Sixth Amendment grounds.

Chris is an active public speaker, and has recently presented before an industry group on New York on the topic of US Trade Secret Law, and also spoke in Osaka, Japan at the Osaka Bar Association on the same topic.
