Biography

Christopher Montville represents clients in professional liability and complex commercial matters. Chris has served on several successful trial teams defending lawyers and law firms against malpractice and negligence claims, and he has also won at trial for business owners in commercial disputes.

Chris's nationwide practice focuses on legal malpractice defense and complex commercial litigation at both the trial and appellate levels. He has successfully defended law firm clients, including large regional and international firms, against claims of malpractice, negligence, and breach of fiduciary duty relating to complex underlying cases. His strong history of effectively handling complex commercial disputes for large clients informs his awareness of exactly the types of issues law firms and lawyers may face when dealing with professional liability lawsuits. Chris has first- and second-chaired several jury trials, arbitrations, and administrative hearings.

Prior to becoming a lawyer, Chris designed and developed financial software systems supporting the international trading and brokerage business for a leading investment bank. He uses this analytical background to plan at the outset the right strategy for each individual matter, from the initial pleadings to trial themes, long before cases reach the courtroom.
