Christopher (Chris) McHugh is a litigator with decades of experience defending individuals and businesses in civil and criminal litigation in Kansas and Missouri courts.

Chris’s courtroom experience spans from state to federal regulatory, trial, and appellate work. He has represented companies in state and federal courts across Kansas and Missouri in commercial litigation matters—particularly in the construction and transportation industries.

Over the course of his career, Chris has become a subject matter expert on too many subjects to count. Chris never expected he would be critical to determining the law applicable to moon-rocks (yes, that historic victory was his). But that lifelong learning, and the opportunity to be a part of the law, is what captivates him.

Even more than his depth of knowledge, however, Chris’s clients like his style—capable, cool, and unfussy.


Chris is a member of the Kansas Bar Association and Missouri Bar Association.
