Raised in Yellowknife, Chris understands the needs of clients in the Northwest Territories. Chris’ practice focuses on labour and employment, human rights, and general litigation. He has advised a variety of clients, including individuals, small businesses, insurers, condo corporations, Aboriginal governments, and multinational corporations. Most recently, Chris was counsel for the Government of the Northwest Territories for over five years.

Chris regularly appears before the Territorial and Supreme Courts of the Northwest Territories and occasionally appears before the Court of Appeal for the Northwest Territories and the Federal Court of Canada.
