We’d like to introduce you to our co-Founder, Peggy Gruenke. Part of our CPN Legal founding family, Peggy has over 20 years experience in the legal industry. Prior to working with lawyers, she developed integral technology proficiencies and was employed as an IT consultant for small businesses.

Originally from Cincinnati, Ohio, Peggy attended Xavier University. Peggy met her husband, Chris, during her time at Xavier University. They’ve built many wonderful things together not least of which is their family. Full of energy, Peggy does not sit still for very long. She loves spending time with her granddaughter, June. She spends most Fridays taking June on adventures across Cincinnati. Peggy also spends time gardening, with some of her flowers growing over 6’ tall!
Meet our co-Founder, Chris Grunke. One half of our CPN Legal founding family, Chris began his professional life at Marion Merrell Dow Pharmaceuticals. After 15 years growing in and learning from the corporate world, started his own business, an up-scale billiards club, and realized his passion for small business strategy. Chris has put that passion to use by bringing the strategic thinking, process improvement techniques, operational discipline and implementation skills to small and mid-market companies in a variety of industries.
Like many of our team, Chris is an Ohio native. He grew up in Cincinnati, went to Walnut Hills High School and Xavier University. Chris and Peggy are both very active. One of Chris’ preferred activities is Beach Volleyball. Every Sunday evening, you can find him on the sand volleyball courts where he plays with his daughter and niece.
