Christopher is a senior associate in Reed Smith’s Global Regulatory Enforcement Group and a member of the firm’s Antitrust & Competition team. Christopher’s practice focuses on international cartel litigation and investigations, financial services litigation, and health care fraud claims, including allegations of False Claims Act and Anti-Kickback Statute violations. Christopher also has experience in advising corporate clients through internal investigations, corporate integrity agreements, civil investigative demands, and regulatory agency subpoenas.

Christopher has considerable experience with managing massive discovery projects that demand the review and production of millions of records. When the demands of “big data” threaten to break budgets or deadlines, Christopher has implemented cutting-edge predictive coding processes to deliver efficient and cost-effective results.

Christopher regularly represents a diverse mix of clients, from multi-national manufacturers, medical device providers, pharmaceutical companies, and major financial institutions to individual shareholders of closely-held companies.

When advising clients on antitrust and merger matters, Christopher relies on his dual major in Economics and Business from the University of Pittsburgh, where he graduated first in the program. Christopher received his J.D. from the College of William & Mary School of Law and served as a Lead Article Editor for the Law Review.

Prior to joining Reed Smith, Christopher was a judicial intern for the Honorable F. Bradford Stillman with the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, and for the Honorable John T. Bender with the Pennsylvania Superior Court.
