Bradley Arant is pleased to announce that partners Austin L. McMullen, Peter C. Sales, and Richard F. Warren, Jr., and associate Junaid Odubeko, have been selected by their colleagues for the Nashville Bar Foundation’s 2016 Class of Fellows. The Fellows Program honors Nashville Bar Association members who have contributed significantly to the community.

“Congratulations to Austin, Peter, Richard, and Junaid for this honor,” said Bradley Arant Nashville Managing Partner Lela Hollabaugh. “These attorneys truly exemplify the ideals of the Nashville Bar Foundation’s prestigious Fellows program. We are proud to have them represent our firm in this manner.”

The Nashville Bar Foundation was formed to support and expand law-related educational and charitable programs and services among students, the general public, and the legal community in order to preserve the integrity of the profession, to foster collegiality among members, and to improve the administration of justice throughout the greater Nashville area. The Fellows Program, established in 1991, recognizes devotion to client service and public interests. Each class of Fellows is limited to approximately 1% of the bar in Nashville.

Mr. McMullen focuses his practice on bankruptcy law, government relations, and commercial litigation. He represents creditors and Chapter 11 debtors, candidates in election contests, and clients involved in federal, state, and local permitting issues, as well as clients in commercial litigation before state and federal courts. He consistently delivers up-to-date legal advice, mitigates risks, and tailors unique solutions to help his clients anticipate problems in advance.

Mr. Sales specializes in trial litigation and counseling, concentrating his practice on complex commercial, environmental, and real estate litigation. He is a member of Bradley Arant’s Environmental/Real Estate Litigation team and leads the Nashville office’s Commercial Landlord/Tenant team and Environmental/Real Estate Litigation team. Mr. Sales has frequently litigated real estate contracts, including disputes over easements, covenants, options, and complex commercial leases.

Mr. Warren represents a wide range of real estate developers, investors, lenders, landlords, and tenants in all types of commercial real estate projects, including office buildings, retail, and multi-family developments.
