I have always had a strong interest and passion for business, specifically entrepreneurship. I pursued this passion by studying Business Administration while 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 fifteen 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 across several industries. 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 early stage investors would be the most fulfilling.
I opened the Law Offices of Christopher J.P. Mitchell, PLLC to serve 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. We have embarked on a new digital age in which advancements in digital media and technology have disrupted the way many businesses operate, including the legal landscape that guides them. My areas of practice and services have evolved to assist these businesses in their navigation of the laws and regulations that intersect with business and technology. I have been at the forefront of business and technology, speaking at panels and seminars, educating and training hundreds on the emerging technology sector, specifically blockchain and the developments in the digital assets space.
In the past five years I have helped launch many successful business ventures. I have assisted both founders and investors in multi-million dollar funding transactions while also acting as their general business counsel. I have taken great satisfaction in working with the founders, early stage companies and the investors who fund them. 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.
