In February 2013, Seth McInteer and Howell O'Rear started McInteer & O'Rear PLC. Previously, this firm's founding members practiced law with another litigation firm in Nashville for six years. While litigation is the focus of McInteer & O'Rear PLC, we provide thorough counsel to meet each client's unique legal needs. Our lawyers have prevailed in both jury and bench trials, and we offer a breadth of experience in both federal and state courts in Tennessee, Alabama, and Kentucky. Our firm is built on a singular dedication to our clients’ goals, and we thrive on variety, flexibility, and creativity to achieve decisive results for our clients.
We enjoy zealously representing our clients in litigation, but know that even successful litigation can be an enormous strain and disruption to businesses and individuals. Accordingly, from protecting intellectual property, to crafting non-competition and employment contracts, to analyzing insurance coverage, to explaining rights and obligations under leases and commercial and residential real estate transactions, we are able to provide thorough legal counsel and strategic guidance to help our clients avoid or minimize the impact of litigation. We have experience assisting a diverse client base, including small businesses, artists, high-profile entertainers, record & publishing companies, entrepreneurs, Fortune 500 companies, investors and investment funds, financial institutions, and health-care entities.
