Chartwell Law opens first Chattanooga office, adds Albritton as partner

An Eastern U.S. law firm is relying on local talent as it opens its first office in Chattanooga.

Chartwell Law has made local attorney Barret Albritton a partner and tapped him to join its Chattanooga office, the firm’s 21st.

Previously with Spears, Moore, Rebman & Williams, Albritton offers Chartwell 18-plus years of experience representing and defending businesses, large self-insured organizations, insurance carriers and employers in various general liability and casualty defense matters, workers’ compensation claims and employment law and workplace-related issues.

An experienced trial lawyer, Albritton represents clients in federal and state courts across Tennessee.

“I was honored to be offered the opportunity to start a new office with Chartwell,’’ Albritton says. “The firm’s vision for growth and professional opportunities ultimately led to me making a change.

“Additionally, the chance to work with a group of like-minded attorneys who take pride in working together to effectively and efficiently assist clients in the development of sound legal strategy was very attractive.

“I’m looking forward to the latest chapter in my legal career.”

Michael Diamond, a member of Chartwell’s administrative committee, says expanding to Chattanooga was an easy decision that coincides with the firm’s expansion plans.

“We already are serving clients located in or with operations in Tennessee, and our clients’ needs are growing in that region of the U.S.

“Barret is a great addition to our firm, and his multi-faceted practice and significant trial experience complement our breadth of capabilities in the South.”

Chartwell’s Chattanooga office is located at 201 W. Main Street and can be reached at 423 910-2200.

Four lawyers founded Chartwell in 2002. With over 170 attorneys in 21 offices throughout the eastern U.S., Chartwell attorneys represent and counsel businesses in a wide variety of legal matters ranging from general liability and casualty defense to complex insurance coverage issues to high-stakes commercial litigation.

National Law Journal recently named Chartwell one of the fastest growing firms in the U.S.
