Brigid M. Carpenter Named Managing Shareholder of Baker Donelson's Nashville Office

Brigid M. Carpenter has been named managing shareholder for the Nashville office of Baker Donelson, making her the first woman to serve in this position. Ms. Carpenter assumes the role previously held by Scott D. Carey for eight years.

Mr. Carey, who served the longest term of any other managing shareholder of Baker Donelson's Nashville office, will return to the full-time practice of law and continue to focus on his complex commercial litigation and transportation practice, and expand his economic development and public policy practice. He also serves as a Rule 31 Civil Mediator.

"The Nashville office has seen tremendous growth under Scott's leadership over the past eight years," said Ms. Carpenter. "I look forward to building on Scott's success in recruiting talented lawyers and instilling the priority of client service."

While serving as office managing shareholder, Ms. Carpenter will maintain her legal practice, which includes products liability defense, catastrophic personal injury defense, and prosecution and defense of commercial disputes. She will continue to represent clients in state and federal trial and appellate courts throughout Tennessee, as well as other jurisdictions around the country.

A graduate of the University of Virginia School of Law, Ms. Carpenter has been listed in The Best Lawyers in America since 2012, has been voted Best of the Bar in the Nashville Bar Journal multiple times and was recognized in the 2016 edition of The International Who's Who of Product Liability Defense. Ms. Carpenter is an active member of the International Association of Defense Counsel (IADC), serving on the faculty of the 42nd Annual IADC Trial Academy at Stanford Law School in 2014. She is also a member of DRI, as well as the American, Tennessee and Nashville Bar Associations.
