Seth McInteer is a Nashville, Tennessee native and founding member of McInteer & O’Rear PLC. Seth’s law practice focuses on zealously representing individuals and businesses in civil litigation and disputes.
Seth’s practice is truly diverse in terms of the nature of each matter, but generally involves contract disputes, general business litigation, real estate and construction transactions, partnership disputes and dissolution, business and real estate financing, negligence claims, property damage, trademark and copyright infringement, business torts, defamation, employment and non-competition agreements, and landlord-tenant issues.
While the majority of Seth’s practice is spent litigating and resolving disputes, the diversity of his practice has afforded him a unique ability to provide well-rounded general legal advice on a wide array of issues facing entrepreneurs, property investors, and small and mid-sized businesses.
