Assisting clients with their intellectual property needs presents me with the opportunity to be on the cutting edge of both law and technology. Clients’ businesses are constantly evolving as technology continues to advance, which in turn generates new legal questions that can only be answered through innovative thinking and persistent hard work. I welcome the challenge this presents and greatly enjoy helping clients stay ahead of the curve.

Chris Burkett’s practice focuses on helping clients in obtaining, maintaining, and enforcing their intellectual property rights. Whether working with a musical artist or a multinational corporation, he devotes the entirety of his focus and effort to help each client achieve their individualized needs.

Chris received his law degree from Vanderbilt University Law School, where he was a member of the Vanderbilt Journal of Entertainment & Technology Law and Phi Delta Phi, and showcased his vocal talents as a member of Headnotes, an a cappella group. He was named to the Dean’s List and was a Chancellor’s Law Scholar.

A 2015 graduate of the University of Georgia, Chris studied political science, psychology and cognitive science. He was named a Presidential Scholar and was a member of Phi Beta Kappa.
