I have always had a strong interest and passion for business, specifically entrepreneurship. I studied both Government and International Politics and Business Administration as an undergraduate student at George Mason University. As a student at Pace Law School, I concentrated my studies on business, media and entertainment law. This included time spent living in Los Angeles, California, studying at SouthWestern University School of Law’s renowned Entertainment and Media Law Institute.
I have been practicing in New York State for over twelve years. During this time I have been involved in the representation of major banks and lending institutions, as well as large and small companies in a variety of legal matters. I am extremely proud of my work with these particular clients. However, deep down I knew that to me, my work with the small businesses, the entrepreneurs, and professionals, was the most fulfilling.
I opened the Law Offices of Christopher J.P. Mitchell, PLLC to re-direct my focus to serving this client base. I wanted to utilize my degrees in business and law along with my real-world legal and business experience with the way I represent my clients. I also wanted to step away from the ‘traditional’ law practice and take advantage of the advancements in digital media and technology in the way that I deliver legal services to my clients. These advancements in digital media and technology have disrupted the legal landscape in which businesses once operated. My areas of practice have evolved to assist those businesses in their navigation of the laws and regulations that intersect with business and technology.
I have taken great satisfaction in working with small businesses, professionals and entrepreneurs, as they invest in and build business ventures. I have made it my priority to understand and respect my clients’ visions and to protect their creations. My ability to mesh legal knowledge with sound business principles when attacking issues is my strongest asset. Contributing to my client’s success is my greatest pleasure.
