Chris Dove

Attorney Chris DoveI started my career as a federal law clerk for Judge Carlos Murguia of the United States District Court in Kansas and then moved to Washington, DC.  I practiced in DC for nearly a decade at the United States Department of Justice and in an international law firm.  
 
I enjoy complicated cases and finding creative ways to solve my client’s problems.  I’ve taken to trial and litigated a variety of cases, including financial fraud; breach of contract; disputes between partners and owners of businesses; intellectual property such as patent and trade secret litigation; construction law; and real estate law.  

My wife and I moved back to Kansas City to live close to our families.  We both are active volunteers in Kansas City.
