Chris Scanlon has earned the reputation as an adept litigator of complex cases. Clients turn to Chris when they require the best possible representation in a significant litigation battle. It is to his credit that he is also regarded as the consummate professional and gentleman, despite being the go-to guy when the stakes are high.
Chris serves the courts on the Indiana Supreme Court Committee on Rules of Practice and Procedure and on the Southern District Local Rules Advisory Committee. He also participates in bar association activities and in the leadership of his law firm, Baker and Daniels, serving on the Strategic Policy Board. His community service includes such worthy efforts as one of a team of volunteers who taught civil law to 10th grade students at Shortridge Law & Public Policy Magnet School last fall.
Justice Ted Boehm, a long time colleague and fan of Chris observes: “Chris and I worked closely together for his first eight years at Baker & Daniels, sometimes under considerable pressure. He always displayed patience, courtesy and good humor in dealing with clients, adversaries, and colleagues alike. He is most deserving of recognition for professionalism.”
