"Non-compete contracts aren't commonplace in the legal field," Bone said.  "We take a proactive approach to retention.  Every attorney is a member.  We have no partners, and everyone is compensated by the same formula.  We've tried to be very intentional creating a structure where every member is equal and has ownership in the firm."

Charles Robert Bone Selected to Second Leadership Tennessee Class

Bone McAllester Norton attorney Charles Robert Bone has been selected to the 2014-15 class for Leadership Tennessee, the second class to go through the program. Thirty-one members from across the state were chosen for the leadership education program designed to cultivate a network of business, nonprofit, education and government leaders who are committed to addressing the state’s challenges and opportunities. Lipscomb University’s Nelson and Sue Andrews Institute for Civic Leadership announced the class members in a press release yesterday.

“I strongly believe that this experience will help the participants personally and will help make our state stronger,” Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam said in a press release. “When we learn more about other parts of the state, we understand issues more fully and can make more collaborative, informed decisions. I also appreciate the thought leadership of this group. This is a great program for Tennessee.”

Charles Robert concentrates his Nashville law practice in the areas of mergers and acquisitions, corporate governance and advising emerging businesses, entrepreneurs, officers, directors and governmental entities. He currently serves as the general counsel for the Convention Center Authority of the Metropolitan Government of Nashville and Davidson County.

Congratulations on this well-deserved recognition!
