Burns Charest LLP Announces Arrival of Christopher J. Cormier as Partner and Establishment of Denver Office

Burns Charest LLP is pleased to announce the arrival of partner Christopher J. Cormier, who will reside in the firm’s newly established Denver, Colorado office.

Chris comes to Burns Charest from another nationally-recognized complex litigation firm, where he concentrated on litigating large-scale antitrust matters across a host of industries for nearly his entire legal career.

In announcing Chris’s transition to the firm, Warren Burns stated:  “Chris is a fantastic lawyer and is ready from day one to aggressively represent our clients’ interests.  We’re not only thrilled—but lucky—to have him.”

Chris is an accomplished plaintiffs’ lawyer who has substantial experience litigating high-stakes antitrust cases.  He has obtained more than $1.5 billion in verdicts and settlements in federal courts across the country during the 15-plus years he has been practicing law.  He has been recognized by Benchmark Plaintiff as an Antitrust Litigation Star (2013 –2015), and he was one of only two lawyers in Colorado to be named a “Rising Star” in the field of Antitrust Litigation by Super Lawyers (2016 and 2017).
