Founding Partners, Mike Morgan and Nick Akins, were and are seasoned litigators with years of success at the administrative, trial, and appellate court levels. With over four decades of combined legal experience in middle Tennessee, Mr. Morgan and Mr. Akins developed outstanding reputations in the legal community for relentless attention to detail on all files and expert negotiation tactics.
In particular, the skill and extensive knowledge of the law, by the attorneys at Morgan & Akins with regard to workers’ compensation matters, is evidenced by the frequent invitations to speak at workers’ compensation seminars around the country. Mr. Akins and Partner Chad Jackson, along with Senior Attorney Duane Willis regularly give presentations on the recent amendments to and application of Tennessee and Kentucky’s workers’ compensation statutes for insurance companies, risk managers, and third party administrators.
Morgan & Akins’ practice is centered on civil litigation, real estate, and business law matters with a primary focus on insurance defense. For years, our attorneys have successfully defended national retailers and insurers in matters involving workers’ compensation claims, premises liability, and general liability matters. In addition to the firm’s civil litigation practice, Nick Akins and Partner Jonathan Harris are very involved in the Nashville real estate market and routinely handle residential and commercial real estate transactions. Their real estate experience ranges from standard residential closings to multi-million dollar commercial property loan restructuring and complex land trust transactions.
