Overview

Chris practices in the areas of construction litigation, white collar defense, and general business litigation. He is licensed in both North Carolina and South Carolina, and works with partners across state lines on a variety of complex litigation matters. 

Chris has experience in construction defect defense and has collected money owed to general contractor and subcontractor clients through the use of mechanic’s liens, liens on funds, lien enforcement actions, and domestication of judgments across state lines. He is a licensed general contractor (building classification) and uses his knowledge of the industry to serve the firm’s construction clients.

In addition to his construction practice, Chris continues to work with the firms’ white collar practice group. He has helped defend companies and individuals accused by whistleblowers and the government of civil and criminal fraud, including a construction client accused of set-aside contract fraud. Chris has also advised entities that receive public funds on how to respond to sensitive public records requests.
