P. Christopher Wegner is an entrepreneur and the founding attorney at Wegner Law PLLC. He is one of the only attorneys in Southwest Florida with significant experience in sophisticated business and tax law matters and is recognized as one of the leading innovators in bringing that experience to small and midsized businesses who cannot always afford to engage larger law firms in South Florida.
In addition to the general business and corporate law services he provides to emerging and established companies in Southwest Florida, Chris works with multi-national corporations on difficult domestic and international tax issues including, multi-million dollar mergers and acquisitions as well as transfer price exams and other bet-the-company IRS audits. Chris has also served as lead counsel on a $100 million merger involving parties in seven countries across North and South America after other lawyers were unable to bring the sides together. In this capacity, Chris created a new type of security that allowed the acquirer to monetize their intellectual property and complete the merger without turning a substantial cash payment.
While in college, Chris co-founded a small technology company that eventually went public (OTC:BB). This experience gives him the rather unique ability to see problems and possibilities through the eyes of the business owner or entrepreneur, as well as through those of an attorney.?
Between his time at Stetson and New York University, Chris played semi-pro tennis (emphasis on the semi) where he went 1-26. If asked to describe this time of his life, Chris will proudly say that he lost to the people who lost to the people that you see on television. Today, Chris still enjoys playing tennis, working out the Greater Naples YMCA and spending time with his Labrador retriever: Caleigh.
