Chris Queenin is an experienced litigator who helps his clients navigate complex business disputes and regulatory matters. His practice is concentrated in highly regulated industries, including telecommunications, finance, gaming and construction.
I help clients in highly regulated industries solve their business problems. Achieving successful outcomes for these clients requires an intimate understanding of their business, including the regulatory and legal framework governing their industry.
For example, I represent telecommunications companies, utilities and government contractors in litigation, regulatory and government relations matters. My work also involves assisting software and gaming companies to evaluate their products’ compliance with state and federal gambling and money laundering laws and, if necessary, helping these clients respond to related government inquiries.
My practice also includes representing investment limited partnerships, hedge funds, private equity funds, offshore private investment funds and other alternative investment vehicles in a variety of disputes across the U.S.
I’ve been focusing on the rapidly evolving legal landscape for sports betting, fantasy sports and online gaming as legislation addressing these issues moves through state legislatures across the country, including Massachusetts. Companies in this space will need to carefully navigate state and federal law to avoid claims by consumers as well as government regulatory and enforcement agencies.
