Chris Keefer

Over his 15+ years as a lawyer, Chris has assisted businesses and manufacturers around the world in developing legal and risk management strategies, and further led the risk department of a global medical device manufacturer. Chris has presented nationally on preventive legal strategies, and also created and taught the Drug & Medical Device Law class at the University of Notre Dame Law School. 

More recently, Chris graduated from the University of Oregon’s inaugural Sports Product Management master’s program. During this time, he had the opportunity to spend ten weeks in Vietnam with a Nike footwear manufacturer working with senior executives on global trade, supply chain and business risk strategies. 

These combined skill-sets, education, and experiences have put Chris in a unique position to help brands and manufacturers proactively address legal and business risks.
