Focus Areas


  • Helped clients understand their legal obligations under new labor and employment laws passed in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Chris drafted work-from-home, leave, and reopening policies and advised on mass layoff and WARN Act obligations, terminations, furloughs, unemployment issues, and alternative work arrangements. He also recommended best practices for essential workers, a safe reopening, employee testing and health assessments, employee travel, and face covering requirements.
  • Defended an international manufacturing company against claims of race, disability, and sex-based discrimination and retaliation by a former employee. The case was ultimately dismissed by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC).
