Chambliss, Bahner & Stophel, P.C., welcomed associate attorneys Courtney Keehan and Grayson Chambers to the Chattanooga firm.

Ms. Keehan recently graduated with a degree from University of Colorado Law School and a certificate in Natural Resources Law and Policy. She will support the Business Transactions Practice Group, concentrating in mergers and acquisitions, education and tax-exempt entity areas. 

“Courtney proved herself to be an asset during her time as a Chambliss summer associate,” said Jim Catanzaro, Jr., business group chair. “We are pleased she is joining our team full-time and look forward to her experience in a variety of fields to deliver the best results for our clients.” 

Through her interest in natural resources, Ms. Keehan has developed practical expertise in the environmental arena. In college, she served as production editor of the Colorado Natural Resources, Energy and Environmental Law Review, which published her work. She also spent time with Getches-Green Natural Resources and Environmental Law Clinic and the Southern Environmental Law Center. 

Before pursuing a career in law, Ms. Keehan earned a bachelor’s degree from the University of Virginia’s Architecture School, which took her around the world. One of her projects involved rethinking the Yamuna riverfront design in New Delhi, India, to address the city's pollution issues, and her studio's design work was exhibited at the Swiss Embassy in New Delhi. 

Mr. Chambers is the newest member of the firm’s Litigation and Risk Management Practice Group. He will represent clients in commercial litigation matters including contract disputes, financial institution bankruptcy, real property disputes, product liability and personal injury defense. 

“Grayson is a well-rounded attorney with the skills to add value to our commercial litigation team,” said Bill Dearing, section chair. “Grayson will help us enhance our work with clients in preventing and reducing legal risk.” 

Prior to joining Chambliss, Mr. Chambers served as a law clerk for the Judge Curtis L. Collier of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Tennessee. Mr. Chambers was a summer associate with Chambliss before clerking for Judge Collier. 

A graduate of the University of Georgia School of Law, Mr. Chambers was in the top 10 percent of his class and served as a teaching assistant. He also contributed to the Georgia Law Review, which published his work on the private search doctrine.
