Chris Lovrien represents companies in high-stakes commercial litigation, internal investigations, and prelitigation counseling. His practice focuses on contract disputes, antitrust claims, securities matters, and the defense of class actions. He has litigated cases before courts throughout the U.S. and has substantial experience in arbitration and mediation. Chris has obtained total defense summary judgments on behalf of Firm clients (including a case seeking $1 billion in damages), achieved dismissals at the pleading stage, and otherwise successfully developed and implemented strategies for early victory.
Chris's recent accomplishments include the successful defense of multiple class actions for a major apparel retailer, obtaining a complete dismissal of tortious interference claims involving an international franchise agreement, achieving a defense summary judgment in a case alleging a fraudulent real estate investment scheme, and completing an internal investigation and SEC inquiry for a public company, ultimately avoiding any SEC enforcement action. Chris's prior accomplishments include a complete defense verdict after a four-week arbitration on behalf of a leading research hospital and a landmark Privacy Act settlement on behalf of a former government nuclear scientist after successfully opposing writs of certiorari to the U.S. Supreme Court.
Chris has litigated dozens of cases involving federal and state antitrust and unfair competition laws (including California Bus. & Prof. Code section 17200). He also has represented public companies and their officers and directors in securities litigation and SEC investigations.
