Biography

Chris Newberg is an attorney at Kuiper Kraemer PC in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Chris helps individuals and businesses work through a wide range of legal issues, including pursing and defending lawsuits, overseeing complex business transactions, drafting and reviewing contracts, and working through intellectual property and entertainment deals.

Chris represents both plaintiffs and defendants in a wide range of disputes throughout Michigan and beyond. He has considerable experience in the federal court system, representing clients in employment, intellectual property, insurance, and business cases. In the state court system, Chris helps clients with cases of all shapes and sizes, ranging from collections cases to insurance claims to partnership disputes to personal injury/wrongful death matters to cases involving allegations of fraud and theft. While much of his litigation experience comes from working on complex lawsuits, there is no case too big or too small for Chris.

From the courtroom to the boardroom, Chris works with Michigan businesses on a variety of formation, governance, compliance, employment, transactional, and related legal matters. He helps dozens of clients start and structure new businesses every year and frequently works with those same clients as their companies grow and evolve. Chris works very closely with the governing boards and executive staff of corporate clients on a wide range of various legal matters that come up in the course of business, ranging from ground level HR matters to multi-million-dollar mergers and acquisitions.

Chris is one of Michigan’s few entertainment attorneys with actual, first-hand experience in the entertainment industry. Chris knows that to properly represent entertainers, you must not only know the law, but also the business. Whether it’s helping a new artist get started in business, working through complex intellectual property licensing issues, or negotiating publishing and record deals, Chris can help.
