Christopher B. Lynch

Associate

Christopher Lynch uses a goal-oriented methodology with his clients that begins with devoting attention to each client’s objectives in order to foster a strong legal foundation and collaborative professional relationship. With the client’s goal in mind from the outset, Christopher utilizes his thoroughness, problem-solving, and tenacity to help his clients achieve the best possible outcome.

Christopher joined the firm in August 2019, focusing his practice on representing both emerging and established cannabis companies and helping them comply with regulatory standards. Christopher is licensed in both Washington and California, which affords him wide-ranging knowledge of local regulations and multijurisdictional proficiencies, and allows him to help clients along the West Coast deal effectively—and creatively when necessary—with regulatory and compliance issues. As the cannabis industry matures and transactions become increasingly sophisticated, Christopher’s ability to provide experienced and appropriate counsel across jurisdictions has become all the more important for his clients.

Christopher’s corporate law experience is robust, and includes mergers and acquisitions, entity structure and formation, and corporate governance, as well as employment and incentive agreements for key personnel. He regularly negotiates and develops all forms of corporate documents, including license options, purchase and sales agreements, operating and shareholder agreements, and the myriad of interbusiness contracts that form the matrix of legal assurances for companies doing business in the highly regulated cannabis industry.

Before graduating from law school, Christopher worked with the Regulatory Enforcement and Economic Justice Section of the Seattle City Attorney’s Office, where he helped with the administration of cannabis issues within the City of Seattle.
