Experience

Chris' projects-related expertise spans the full life cycle of projects from procurement and contract negotiation and risk analysis to mid-project advice to post-project disputes.

Chris has spent the last six years prior to recently joining DWF in a senior in-house role at a global engineering firm. He developed deep experience across many sectors including Water, Rail, Multi-use Development, PPP infrastructure, Energy, Airports, Technology Hubs, and Environmental. Chris oversaw litigation in over a dozen countries and has advocated in mediations, adjudications and arbitrations on many files.

Chris is hoping to parlay his broad in-house exposure to projects in some 40 countries, M & A transactions, Irish leases, Employment law, Data Privacy and Corporate governance into cross-selling opportunities across the DWF offerings and offices.

Chris is Canadian and worked for seven years there in commercial and construction litigation with an early specialism in insurance defence work. When not at work, Chris is an ice hockey enthusiast. He coaches in the Dublin Ducks junior ice hockey club and is the most "experienced" playing member of the Senior Club. Chris enjoys hiking and travelling.
