His real estate development practice includes representation of a real estate investment entity that partnered with Hines Interests, one of the world’s leading developers, in a 12-year transformation of 1,050 acres of Williamson County farmland into Cool Springs, one of the premier mixed-use developments in the Southeast, containing 1,200 apartment units, 575 homes, 2.3 million square feet of retail space and 3 million square feet of office space.  He dealt regularly with city planning commissions; utility districts; surveyors; engineers; title companies; lenders; contractors; real estate brokers; and attorneys across the country for buyers and their lenders.

Among his other practice areas are specialized litigation, in the real estate, tax, estate and business areas.  He combines his real estate and taxation knowledge by being a speaker at seminars on like-kind exchanges.  He also is a frequent speaker at seminars on real estate law and on title insurance. 

While his practice areas are diverse, a legal problem often involves more than one of them, and he brings a broad legal and business perspective to bear on that problem.

In his spare time, Ken is a nationally ranked senior tennis player.  He was chief manager of a development company that converted the firm’s former offices in an historic downtown Nashville building into residential lofts.  His civic activities include serving as the chair of the board of directors of the Brentwood Cool Springs Chamber of Commerce.  His wife, Susie Campbell, is an insurance agent.
