He is a registered patent attorney, active entrepreneur and National Science Foundation evaluator for the research hub Center for Green Solid-State Electric Power Generation and Storage.

Christopher’s practice areas include patent and trademark prosecution, licensing and litigation, corporate law with an emphasis on benefit corporations, socially responsible businesses and high-growth emergent companies, government contracts with an emphasis on innovation funding, corporate and investor financing and technology commercialization.

He is a Tennessee Bar Association leadership lawyer and board member to several environmental and social impact nonprofits, including Chattanooga-based Green|Spaces.
