George Phillips concentrates his practice in the areas of corporate and business law, communications law, labor and employment law and commercial and business litigation. He has extensive experience in negotiating and facilitating significant business acquisitions and complicated commercial transactions and agreements, including international contract negotiations. He serves as the general counsel for several companies that do not have an in-house counsel. He is the utility infielder for legal issues for a national pet supply company, regional mortgage company, solar equipment manufacturer and a remediation company, managing their contracts, compliance issues, regulatory issues, liability claims and litigation matters. Practicing in the firm’s Sumner County office, George also provides business and legal advice to a number of growing Sumner County businesses and to companies considering locating in Middle Tennessee. Prior to joining Bone McAllester Norton, George spent 10 years as general counsel and senior vice president of a national home shopping network, a public company later acquired by a national communications company. In this capacity, he negotiated and coordinated the closing of many major transactions and securities offerings and the purchase and sale of television stations across the U.S. In addition, George administered all SEC compliance and corporate compliance programs, ensuring that the sales and pricing claims were truthful and substantiated under the Federal Trade Commission regulations and laws. As a result of his efforts, the network was the only major general merchandise home shopping network that was never the target of an FTC action. George also has extensive experience in labor and employment issues, having supervised the company’s human resources department and administered the organization’s stock option plan. In his role as general counsel, he actively managed all litigation, bringing more than 60 lawsuits to successful conclusion
