PRACTICES & INDUSTRIES SERVED Litigation & Dispute Resolution
PRESS & PUBLICATIONS

Here’s why you’ll enjoy working with him.

With 15 years of experience in a broad range of industries, including energy, pharmaceuticals, food and beverage, consumer products, and higher education, Chad has handled all areas of litigation and trial in both state and federal courts. Where others see an insurmountable obstacle, he sees a new challenge, and an opportunity for innovative critical thinking. Chad works closely with his clients to understand the specifics of their business and industry to better advise them on decisions that will accomplish their goals and avoid costly litigation.

Unflappable under pressure, Chad has successfully litigated several multi-jurisdictional energy cases where he directed the defense strategy and served as the primary attorney through all stages of trial and trial preparation with hundreds of millions of dollars at stake. So if it comes to down to litigation, Chad has the experience, poise and the proven track record to devise the most prudent strategy and guide you through it, providing practical, sage counsel every step of the way.   

But that’s not all. Chad is also very experienced in:

  • Products liability
  • Toxic torts
  • Higher education
  • Consumer financial services
  • Food and beverage litigation and regulatory counseling
  • Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act and CSPC regulatory counseling

In his former life, Chad was:

  • Counsel at Goodwin Procter in Boston
  • An associate at Arnold & Porter in Washington, DC

When Chad isn’t working, he is…

Embracing life’s day to day challenges and triumphs with his wife and three young, energetic and opinionated, yet wonderful, children. And from time to time, he can be found hiking and backpacking, and by that he means walking the golf course while carrying his clubs.
