David Anthony, a former member of Bone McAllester Norton who spent more than a decade at the Nashville firm, has joined Memphis-based Harris Shelton Hanover Walsh and will lead the firm’s expansion in Nashville.
Harris Shelton currently employs nearly 60 attorneys in five offices in Tennessee and Mississippi. Anthony said in a press release that the goal is to hire three or four additional attorneys in Nashville by the end of the year. The firm has made previous forays into the Nashville market, including with former Davidson County Chancellor Bill Young, who last year was appointed to lead the state Bureau of Ethics and Campaign Finance.
Harris Shelton managing member Brett Hughes called Anthony “the ideal attorney and business partner to navigate our growth and to service our clients in the Nashville area.”
Anthony’s practice includes creditors’ rights in bankruptcy, commercial real estate litigation and business disputes. In recent years, he has represented parties in high-profile legal disputes related to Auto Masters and Gibson Guitar.
“It’s a strange time to start something new but, for my clients, the demand for legal services is higher than I’ve seen in the past decade,” Anthony said in the release.
