Chris came to Brownlee as an associate in the Business Services group in late 2021, where he carries on a general corporate and commercial law practice.
Prior to joining Brownlee, Chris began his legal career with Alberta Justice, providing legal services to clients in the Treasury Board and Finance ministry, with a focus on insurance regulation and policy, contracting and procurement, and unclaimed property matters, in addition to assisting with several major legislative projects. This experience gives Chris a unique background and insight when providing advice to Brownlee’s clients, particularly those in the public sector.
Chris’ interest in corporate and commercial work began while in law school and was further developed through his early years of practice. The combination of performing detail-oriented legal analysis, while maintaining a focus on the bigger picture and the important issues, drew Chris to the field. He feels fortunate for the opportunity to collaborate with and provide high quality legal services alongside his distinguished Brownlee colleagues in this practice area.
In his spare time, Chris enjoys being with his young family, following sports, and listening to podcasts.

A career in law offers a way to leverage my best skills with my interests in history, business, and politics, and to incorporate it all into my daily work. I enjoy working through complex concepts to distill them down into their simpler and more approachable parts, and law provides an opportunity to be intellectually challenged in this way while also doing meaningful work.
