Chris Schultz is a non-pareil. His graciousness, intuition, and intelligence combine to create unparalleled value for Level 2 Legal’s clients. Chris spends his days vigorously anticipating his clients’ difficulties, risks, and challenges – and then presenting the perfect solution.
Knowledge and expertise, truth and honesty, collegiality and respect – these are the values Chris brings to work every day. As he interacts with clients, he can hear childhood advice from his parents and grandparents echoing in his mind. Advice that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Advice that reminds him to make sure all work is done well and right, the first time:
"An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Benjamin Franklin's words still ring as true today as they did in 1736. I work vigorously to anticipate and advise our clients on the risks and challenges facing them in today's complex legal landscape so they can achieve their greatest success."
Chris honed his expertise in 16 years of private practice with an AmLaw 50 firm, during which time he created and chaired one of the first full-service eDiscovery legal practice groups in the nation. Also recognized by his peers, Chris serves on the faculty of the renowned Sedona Conference where he has taught the legal and technical details of eDiscovery to hundreds of people. (Read Chris's complete professional biography.)
Chris strives to be a team player, working toward the good of the organization, while bringing expertise to all his tasks. As he looks around the office, he can see a rare “spirit of service” emanating from each team member.
Even before working with Level 2, he could sense this work ethic. "Working on projects with Level 2 was like working with an extension of my firm – one of the highest compliments an outside counsel can give to a trusted, third-party service provider."
It’s no surprise that Chris is an avid sportsman and chess player, both of which require focus and precision to perform well.
Chris brings integrity, innovation, and intuition to Level 2 Legal's diverse eDiscovery solutions.
