Wilson Elser Opens Atlanta Office Expanding Foothold in the Southeast

March 15, 2017 - Wilson Elser has opened an office in Atlanta, Georgia, providing the firm with a key strategic position in the Southeast to better service clients across the region.

The office, the firm’s 31st in the United States, currently comprises six attorneys: partners Jeffrey Melcher, regional managing partner, and Parks Stone, deputy regional managing partner; of counsels Frank Ing-Jye Chao and Tawana Johnson; and associates Ellis Chen-Mei Liu and Jeffrey Putnam.

Drawing on decades of collective experience, these attorneys serve regional and national clients doing business in the Southeast, broadly encompassing Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee and North Carolina. They handle a variety of matters related to insurance coverage and liability defense, including transportation, professional liability, commercial litigation, premises liability, product liability, medical malpractice, employment, property, consumer protection and banking.

Our Atlanta laterals come to us with extensive experience from large, national firms. This experience will undoubtedly help facilitate their transition into Wilson Elser’s culture and result in their seamless integration as part of our national network.
