Ross Johnson is an experienced litigator and member of the firm’s commercial and complex litigation group.

Ross’ practice stretches across various industries, including construction, real estate, employment, financial services, and other complex business disputes. Ross represents individuals and companies of all shapes and sizes and, as a result, he understands the importance of both an aggressive and cost-effective strategy. He is no stranger to the courtroom and is experienced in all aspects of the litigation process.

Prior to returning to his hometown of Nashville, Ross worked at a boutique law firm in Washington, DC where he focused on labor and employment, administrative, regulatory, and public policy matters. Before law school, Ross worked at The Brookings Institution and The Glover Park (now FGS Global), where he provided communications, government relations, and public policy advice to clients ranging from Fortune 500 companies to national nonprofits and trade organizations. This background and experience had a tremendous effect on Ross’ legal practice, teaching him, above all, the importance of crisis management and effective communication across varying audiences, whether that be a judge, an opposing side, or the public at large. To this end, Ross takes pride in his ability to counsel clients in the midst of a crisis and provide them with a clear and effective path forward.

Ross received his B.A. from Tulane University in 2006 and J.D. from Washington & Lee University Law School in 2013. While at Washington & Lee, Ross was the Senior Articles Editor for the Journal of Civil Rights and Social Justice and recipient of the Louis A. Halper Award for the Best Student Note. Ross lives in Nashville with his wife, son, and energetic Australian Shepherd.
