I also worked with Chris in New York - we started together as first year associates. Chris was one of the first people I got to know at the firm - and from the first time I met him, he was always passionate, full of life and love and always smiling. We will miss him dearly, but have many fond memories to look back on. My deepest sympathies to the family. Rest In Peace, Chris.

I worked with Chris in New York. He was very driven, always positive and inclusive and created fun wherever he went. He will be sorely missed but will live on in the many lives he touched. My condolences to his family. Rest in peace, Chris.
