How Chip Helps Clients

Chip is a skilled litigator with experience counseling and representing employers in a broad range of employment matters before federal and state courts, administrative agencies such as the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, and state and local agencies. He represents employers in a wide array of employment disputes, including:

  • Single-plaintiff discrimination claims.
  • Restrictive covenant, unfair competition, and trade secrets litigation.
  • Single-plaintiff and class wage and hour claims.

Chip also regularly provides advice and counseling to clients, including drafting employee handbooks and policies, including noncompetition, nonsolicitation, and confidentiality agreements.

What Clients Can Expect

Chip takes great pride in understanding each client’s business drivers and strategic goals. Litigation is unpredictable, and each new case invariably presents its own unique set of legal issues and factual challenges. The foundation to a successful litigation strategy rests on a practical and clear-eyed understanding of how each step in the process best serves the client’s bottom line.

Outside the Office

Chip is a Pittsburgh native and an avid fan of Pittsburgh sports. When he’s not working, he spends most of his time attempting to corral his over-exuberant two year-old son. Chip also enjoys playing recreational sports in his spare time and has recently taken up platform tennis.
