Christopher Lamb focuses his practice on commercial bankruptcy, financial restructuring and commercial litigation, working with a variety of industries on corporate restructurings, debtor reorganizations and insolvency. He draws from his experience as a law clerk at the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana to bring a thorough understanding of complex case procedure and strategy to guide clients.

As he develops his practice, Chris also leverages his externships with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court, Northern District of Georgia, the Securities and Exchange Commission Reorganization Unit and the U.S. Department of Justice, Trustee Program, all of which provided him with in-depth knowledge of bankruptcy law and judicial procedures in corporate restructurings and litigation. 

While serving as a Research Assistant to Emory Law Professor Kristin Johnson, now CFTC Commissioner, Chris also gained a broad knowledge regarding insolvency of cryptocurrency companies and exchanges and the risks it posed, including how the insolvency of those emerging technologies could affect financial markets.
