Christopher T. Wilson

Chris Wilson spearheads our firm’s “Fennemore Forward” program, our remote attorney program creating a new business model for happier, more productive attorneys. In a prior role, Chris created and developed a remote attorney program for a traditional law firm based in Atlanta that generated over $12 million in gross revenue for 2022. He also successfully recruited in excess of 50 attorneys nationally to join the firm, managed these attorneys, and led numerous recruiting and marketing campaigns regarding the positioning of the law firm as “hybrid.” At Fennemore, he’s involved with all elements of building out the national footprint for the remote attorney program, managing the separate financial component of the program, and leading the integration efforts with respect to the traditional side of the firm.

As a business lawyer, in his practice Chris works with small to midsize companies in transactional matters, involving debt financing, mergers and acquisitions, commercial contracts, corporate governance and shareholder issues, and commercial contracts.

Raised in Georgia, Chris enjoys helping attorneys improve their professional experiences – and he’s a national proponent of flexible, hybrid working models in the legal profession, leading to happier lawyers, and better outcomes for their clients outside of the traditional law firm structure.

Chris is based in Charleston, South Carolina. In the fall, you’ll find Chris at home and on the road as a super fan of the University of Georgia football team in the SEC Conference. Chris’ family consists of three girls, and his wife is currently transitioning into a second career working as a forensic pathologist. And when he really wants to relax and unwind, Chis is a bourbon aficionado with a growing collection of fine spirits. Ask him about Redbreast Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey – the Lustau Edition.
