Bio

I am a business lawyer and litigator in Atlanta, GA. For litigation matters, my practice has focused in recent years on trade secret, insurance coverage, corporate and other commercial disputes. I have extensive prior experience in construction, product liability and catastrophic personal injury cases. I have represented clients in many industries, including manufacturing, machinery, energy (green and traditional), engineering, and financial institutions. I also represent clients in connection with equipment sales contracts, non-disclosure agreements, terms and conditions, and other general business matters. I have also become a registered mediator, and am available to mediate business and other cases (but I do not mediate family law matters). Many of my clients are international companies or their U.S. subsidiaries, including German, Swedish, Finnish, Irish and Canadian companies. I often counsel international companies regarding the U.S. legal system, and have given seminars on various U.S. legal topics in Germany and here in the U.S. I am rated AV by Martindale-Hubbell and 10.0 by AVVO. I was named to the list of Georgia Super Lawyers published by the Journal of Law and Politics and Atlanta Magazine in 2008 and 2009. I graduated first in my class from the University of Georgia School of Law in 1982. I was a partner (and previously an associate) in large law firms for over 25 years, and now prefer working in a smaller environment. My firm's website is at http://www.ctflegal.com. I have a mediation website at http://www.watkinsmediation.com. I blog on various business legal topics at http://www.ctflegal.blogspot.com and do podcasts on similar topics. The podcasts are available on the firm website, iTunes (search "ctflegal") and www.ctflegal.blip.tv. I post regularly on Twitter and am also on LinkedIn. If you need help with a business legal issue in Georgia or need a mediator, please give me a call or send me an email.
