Levin, Cohn, Ferris, Glovsky and Popeo, P.C. continues to enhance
its nationally recognized Litigation Practice with the addition of
Christopher Sullivan, a highly-respected trial and appellate attorney
with more than three decades of experience in complex national and
international business litigation, including extensive trial and
appellate expertise. Over the course of his career, Mr. Sullivan has
taken numerous jury trials to verdict; handled countless bench trials
and arbitrations; and led a number of precedent-setting cases in the
Second Circuit and the New York State Court of Appeals. He joins the
firm as a Member in the New York office.
Mr. Sullivan is well versed in high-stakes legal matters, including
internal investigations; criminal and quasi-criminal matters; regulatory
actions; shareholder demands; and corporate governance challenges. He
als is an authority on loan workouts; distressed debt situations;
issues involving troubled or financially weakened companies; and bank
practices and procedures. He regularly represents public firms, as well
as their boards of directors and audit committees; privately held
companies; funds; and individual clients in significant litigation in
federal and state courts. Fluent in French and Italian, and
conversational in Chinese, he serves as a go-to resource for

"Chris is a highly regarded and talented litigator, and we are delighted
to be able to add him to our formidable national litigation team," said

experience in complex litigation and reputation as a trusted strategist
and advisor exemplify the range of skills we look for in providing first
rate service to our clients."
Mr. Sullivan also is known as an effective negotiator in business
divorce cases, such as fights for control of privately held business and
break-ups of professional practices. He was appellate counsel in two of
the leading cases in New York regarding the fiduciary duties owed by
lawyers to their law firms. His work in Graubard v. Moskovitz is
credited with fundamentally reframing the fiduciary responsibility of
lawyers when they leave their firms, helping shape the rule for the
legal profession itself.
Mr. Sullivan holds a bachelor's degree from Catholic University of
America and a J.D. from New York University School of Law.
