Chris Adams' practice focuses on corporate reorganizations and restructurings, acquisitions of assets in bankruptcy, and creditors' rights. He has experience representing large, publicly traded entities in their Chapter 11 cases and institutional and corporate creditors in some of the country's largest Chapter 11 cases to date. His practice also includes general civil litigation in both federal and state courts as well as general business transactions. Chris' clients have come to appreciate his zealous representation tempered by his practical approach to solving their legal and business problems.

Chris attended the Baylor University School of Law where he obtained his J.D. while serving as  a Judicial Intern to the Honorable Wesley W.
