Meet the Team

Chris Reid | Founding Partner

Chris was destined to be a lawyer at age 6, when his older brother forced him to sign an unfair “contract” forbidding him from touching the family’s video game floppy disks. Chris now runs a firm dedicated to helping gaming, tech and creative businesses navigate not just bad contracts, but all the legal issues facing a business.

He began his legal career working for the Legal Aid Society, representing low-income tenants in Brooklyn housing court. He then worked several years as an intellectual property law associate with Ropes & Gray LLP, where he represented leading technology, automotive, pharmaceutical, biomedical and software companies on a variety of complex litigation and transactional intellectual property matters.

In early 2013, Chris was inspired by the explosion of indie game development and started his own creative and technology law firm in Brooklyn, New York dedicated to helping gaming, tech and creative businesses navigate modern legal issues. As a gamer himself, his original goal was to provide affordable legal help for developers and games industry professionals. He quickly expanded his services to startup counsel, company formation law, and much more, realizing that creatives and tech companies of all stripes faced similar issues and deserved access to personalized and affordable legal help.

His favorite game of all time is probably the original Marathon, but ask him what he’s playing recently and he’ll be happy to geek out. He prefers a crowdfunding-backer shirt over a suit any day.

Daniel, an attorney licensed to practice in New York and Germany, is the founder of Koburger
Law and a former associate of Chris Reid Law. After his departure to new frontiers, Daniel
founded Koburger Law, a transatlantic law firm based in Munich and New York that serves the
video game, tech, creative, and digital space.

As a Bavarian in New York and American raised in Munich and the UK, Daniel has the necessary culturally diverse understanding of the different markets driving the video game and software industries. With his law degrees in Munich and New York focusing on intellectual property, IT, and unfair competition law, and as a former associate here at Chris Reid Law, Daniel brings unique experience at his position to the table for the representation of video game developers. In this capacity, Daniel has been invited to speak at venues such as Gamescom or for the German video game association "game" on numerous practical and legal issues, which indie developers regularly encounter.
