Christopher Queenin

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.

What do you focus on?

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.

What do you see on the horizon?

I see more companies in highly regulated, competitive industries working to proactively manage any potential legal risks with their innovative business strategies in order to avoid (or efficiently resolve) claims by customers, investors, consumers, vendors, or contractors, as well as government enforcement matters.
