Christopher is a Health Benefits Lawyer and Third Party Liability Attorney who started his career as a Claims Recovery Specialist with The Phia Group in 2005 and spent the first couple of years honing his subrogation, third party recovery and negotiation skills while also learning about the incredibly complex field of subrogation and benefit plan recovery law. Chris quickly became a valuable asset to the recovery department as a trainer and mentor to new employees as well as a source of information and assistance for the recovery specialists. Chris has managed thousands of cases all over the country and spearheaded negotiations between plan participants, plaintiffs’ counsel, third party liability lawyers and plan administrators on matters of state and federal law, third party liability, third party recovery, as well as ERISA preemption. He has recovered millions of dollars on behalf of benefit plans in virtually every state and federal jurisdiction. Most of this occurred before Chris attended law school in Boston, MA and earned his J.D. in 2014, becoming licensed to practice law in the commonwealth of Massachusetts later the same year. Considered one of the nation’s top TPL attorneys and health benefits lawyers, Chris has overseen the training and education of staff in the ever developing arena of subrogation law and currently focuses a significant amount of time planning The Phia Group’s recovery strategies and resolving the most complicated issues between benefit plans, their stop loss partners, care providers, and benefit plan participants in relation to subrogation and overpayment recovery. Chris is a regular presenter on The Phia Group’s Free Monthly Webinars and a regular contributor to its quarterly newsletters. He is also a regular contributor to SIIA’s monthly publication, the “Self Insurer” and has been selected as a presenter several times for the Annual Conference for the National Association of Subrogation Professionals, regarding key cases such as Sereboff v. Mid Atlantic Medical Services, Inc. and Montanile v. Board Of Trustees. Chris received his Bachelor’s Degree from Suffolk University, prior to obtaining his Juris Doctorate from Suffolk University.
