Christopher Walther’s transactional practice focuses on corporate, business, and commercial real estate matters.
As a seasoned business attorney, Chris counsels clients on corporate organization, governance and restructuring (including mergers and acquisitions), as well as negotiating, drafting, interpreting, complying with and minimizing risk under a diverse range of business agreements and contracts. Chris aids commercial lenders and borrowers in negotiating, documenting, modifying and foreclosing on secured loans, and advises sellers, buyers, lessors and lessees in acquiring, financing, operating, leasing and selling commercial real and personal property. He has also developed a broad legal opinion letter practice, and his passion for this work has made him a sought-after attorney in this area.
With an enthusiasm for client service, Chris is adept helping his clients to identify their goals and make important legal decisions, often acting like an in-house counsel.

Throughout Chris’s career as a business attorney, clients have relied on him to pinpoint the most important legal issues and recommend strategic solutions, giving them peace of mind and a clear blueprint to solve their problems. Typically, this process includes weighing and resolving the various litigation, employment, regulatory, gaming, intellectual property, tax and environmental concerns businesses often face.
