Appellate Commercial / Corporate Litigation Class Action

Grayson focuses his practice on appellate proceedings and major trial court motions. He represents both private and public entities in cases involving novel or complicated legal questions and complex procedural issues.

Grayson has drafted appellate briefs and trial court motions on a wide range of issues, ranging from novel questions of law, statutory interpretation, jurisdictional questions, class certification, evidentiary issues, breach of contract, fiduciary duty, employment discrimination, and procedural issues. From his clerkship experience and his own practice, Grayson understands that strong reasoning and clear writing are the keys to presenting a client’s most effective argument to the court.

Before joining Burr Forman McNair, Grayson clerked for the Honorable Dennis W. Shedd on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit. While in law school, Grayson served as an executive editor of the Duke Law Journal and as a member of the Moot Court Board.
