Christopher J. Davidson has close to 15 years of litigation experience, having served as first chair trial counsel in numerous high stakes cases throughout his career. He has represented both individuals and corporate entities facing multi-million dollar exposure, which, at times, have received media attention.
Mr. Davidson comes to BMK with an impressive portfolio of courtroom experience. As a former partner of a regional litigation law firm, he secured both plaintiff and defense verdicts for national corporations. He defended numerous insurance companies in multi-million dollar bad faith claims, and resolved a number of other high exposure claims, including claims involving catastrophic injuries and fatalities. Chris also represented municipalities for alleged violations of civil rights and defended whistleblower statute claims.
Mr. Davidson also served as a supervising Assistant District Attorney for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, and in that capacity secured a number of verdicts following multi-day trials having only circumstantial evidence to prove his case. He supervised a talented team of prosecutors and developed a specialty in forensics. Combined with his large law firm experience, Mr. Davidson has not only demonstrated a proven track record of success through sophisticated trial strategies, but also a high level of comfort in the courtroom.
At Berluti McLaughlin & Kutchin, Mr. Davidson’s practice focuses on commercial, corporate, and employment matters. He represents high-net-worth individuals who rely on his insights and guidance with respect to a variety of complex legal issues, including fiduciary disputes between shareholders, derivative lawsuits, officer and director liability, real estate disputes, and corporate breach of contract. He also represents clients in employment discrimination matters arising out of alleged sexual harassment, gender and age discrimination, retaliation claims, civil rights and whistleblower claims. Mr. Davidson also represents clients in will disputes and other disputes that may arise out of succession planning.
Mr. Davidson is strategic, result-oriented, and aggressive. He provides his clients pre-suit investigation and legal advice in an effort to avoid lengthy litigation and pursue early case resolution. However, he will aggressively litigate matters, if needed, to secure a favorable result.
