AVS_0171-500-2Christopher J. Rooney was born in New York City. As the principal of the Law Office of Christopher J. Rooney, he concentrates on intellectual property and estate planning law.

He began his career as an attorney practicing at international law firms Chadbourne & Parke LLP and Duane Morris LLP in New York City. Building upon his experiences in the corporate law arena, he then co-founded and served as general counsel for a successful website localization and language translation company.

The goal of his law practice is to handle each matter with the level of attention and professionalism demanded by the most sophisticated clients, but with the responsiveness and cost-efficiency lacking at larger law firms. By utilizing available technologies and social media, he provides his clients with cutting-edge legal representation. To supplement the services offered to his clients, he has cultivated relationships with other law firms and legal practitioners that complement the legal services offered by his firm.

His passions for photography, music and books help him to understand the creative process and the importance of protecting one’s creative works. His concern for the environment motivates him to support and work with such organizations as the Friends of the Tomorrow/Waupaca River and the River Alliance of Wisconsin. He lives in Central Wisconsin with his wife, two children, and dog, Waylon.
