Christopher J. Lyon
If you have a self-image problem, we suggest you read no further. Chris Lyon, it would appear, has no flaws. Check it out: He’s truly a gentleman lawyer, proving a lawyer does not have to snort and paw the ground to win. He bakes cakes and reads classic fiction. He and his lovely wife have two lovely, young children. He works smart and gets it right. He’s a snappy dresser and owns more white button-down shirts than a federal judge. And he’s humble – even sincere. We hired him anyway.
He graduated from the University of Maryland College Park, and made his way downtown to the University of Maryland School of Law. After graduating with honors, Chris cut his teeth in the trial department of a large Baltimore firm successfully defending national clients in federal and state courts against all sorts of claims, most of which, he humbly remarks, were spurious. Today he works both sides of the fence representing plaintiffs and defendants in IP, commercial and employment disputes.
Chris has been recognized by his peers as a Super Lawyer® Rising Star in the Maryland legal community based on his talents and skills as an effective advocate for his clients. When he’s not ironing his cape, Chris volunteers at Our Daily Bread, supports the Enoch Pratt Free Library as a longtime member of the Pratt Contemporaries, and is active with the Baltimore City Bar’s education arm, including serving as a docent at the Museum of Baltimore Legal History at the Mitchell Court House. To maintain his aura of sincerity, Chris keeps his hair short and neat, wears sharply creased white button-down shirts, conservative ties and actually wears highly polished shoes with real shoe laces.
With all this nicey-nice stuff, we’re a little mystified how Chris manages to be such a successful litigator, copyright attorney, trademark attorney, intellectual property attorney, and patent infringement attorney. Maybe he kills them with kindness. But clearly, Chris proves you don’t have to blow smoke to stoke a hot fire. This guy hits it out of the park on a regular basis, but he’d never tell you himself.
