Chris Parent joins the Monogram Club Board of Directors in 2010 to serve a three-year term ending in 2013.

Parent currently serves as legal counsel and head of Trademarks and Copyrights for Nintendo of America Inc. In this capacity, Parent oversees global legal clearance of all of Nintendo's video game content, and manages the trademark and copyright portfolios for Nintendo of America.

Prior to his work with Nintendo, Parent was an attorney in Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck's Denver office and was a member of the firm's Intellectual Property & Technology Group.

Before practicing law, the Fairfield, Conn., native was a speechwriter and analyst for the U.S. Department of Defense and a writer for Inside the Pentagon.

The first in a long line of solid goaltenders under Coach Kevin Corrigan, Parent was the primary starter in goal for the Irish from 1990-1993. Parent helped lead the program to its first-ever NCAA Tournament appearances in 1990, 1992, and 1993. Among Notre Dame goaltenders, Parent ranks fourth all-time in wins (24) and sixth in career saves (416). In addition, his 29 saves against top-ranked Loyola (Md.) in 1990 is still the highest single-game mark in Irish history. Parent was captain of the 1993 team and was selected to play in the 1993 North-South All-Star game.

After graduating cum laude from the University in 1993 with a degree in government and English, Parent earned a Master's degree in international affairs from The George Washington University in 1995 before returning to South Bend to receive his J.D. from Notre Dame in 2000.

Parent and his wife Melissa (J.D. '00) have two children: Madeline (10) and Sophie (6).
