Chris works hard to understand his clients’ broader objectives in order to craft creative and practical solutions through a combination of courtroom advocacy and savvy negotiation.
In his broad litigation practice, Chris regularly represents individuals, privately owned businesses, and public companies across a variety of industries and professions. His work focuses on complex commercial litigation and includes shareholder disputes, arbitration, securities litigation, restructuring and insolvency, class actions, and professional liability and regulation cases. He has significant experience representing health professionals in litigation and regulatory matters.
Chris spent the first five years of his career in New York and Toronto, working in the litigation department of a major U.S. law firm and then at a top Canadian litigation boutique firm. His experience in New York make him particularly adept at handling cross-border matters, including enforcing foreign judgments and letters rogatory. Chris combines the rigour of a big firm approach with the efficiency and personalized service of a boutique in his practice at Conway.
Raised in Ottawa, Chris recently returned home to the National Capital Region to be closer to family. When he is not out reacquainting himself with his hometown, Chris can be found reading contempory fiction, digging for records, practicing yoga, and cooking.
