undefinedChristopher Dunn, Esq.


After more than two dozen years in the business sector, working for Fortune 100 companies, in management and executive positions, negotiating multimillion-dollar contracts on the business side of the house, Christopher (“Chris”) Dunn moved to the legal side of the house. With experience in all areas of employment law, both as an employer and as an attorney, Christopher Dunn, Esq. is prepared to do battle to represent you against even the toughest employers.

"Dunn is a fighter for rights and justice. I loved having him on my side. I'd highly recommend him." – Tucci

“You are someone who has always been upfront with me in my case… and one I fully appreciate.” – Gary

As a Connecticut licensed attorney with over twenty years of business and legal experience combined, Dunn has a unique perspective on employment law issues. "He's aptly named; he knows how to get the job done." - Smith

The employment law landscape requires an attorney to be extremely knowledgeable about a myriad of laws, including the FFCRA, CARES Act, FMLA, FLSA, ADA, ADAAA, ADEA, FLSA, NLRA, OSHA, Title VII, and numerous others. Moreover, it requires sophisticated strategies to win. Dunn, as a published scholar, with a law review article on a seminal framework of law, brings his comfort with writing powerful arguments, motions and briefs to his practice for clients. Whether in reply briefs, sur-replies, or memoranda of law, Dunn approaches your case with attention to both the details and the big picture strategy of your case. As an attorney who also practiced family law, before settling on a focus on employment law, he's not afraid to deal with the highly contentious courtroom processes. Commission on Human Rights filings, 26(f)s, complaints, discovery, interrogatories and requests for production, motions to compel, damages analysis, mediations, settlement conferences, each of these significant parts of a case require someone who is on top of it. Dunn is just that. Working as part of a talented team, Dunn provides the strength of a talented mind with passion for his client’s success.

Additionally, Dunn cares about those who have been treated unjustly, and that's why he's also practiced in the Connecticut Regional Children's Probate Court helping minors.

Dunn is a graduate of Pace University School of Law, who was selected to be on the Environmental Law Review. He's a member of the federal bar and the Connecticut State Bar and is also a member of the Connecticut State Bar Association. He resides on the Connecticut shoreline, with boys, a loving partner, and a dog.
