He also regularly advises clients in navigating the domestic and international income tax and corporate law issues associated with these plans.

Chris earned his B.A., cum laude, from the University of Notre Dame, his J.D. from Brooklyn Law School, and his LL.M. in Taxation from the Villanova University School of Law.
