Helping clients deal with dirty dirt

At the intersection of environmental law and strategic business objectives, companies turn to Ed Callaway for advice on the regulatory demands and details that impact commercial development projects, acquisitions, and day-to-day operations in a wide range of industries. Clients appreciate Ed's professional and personal curiosity and his willingness to get his hands dirty - literally - when making on-site visits to better understand their operations.

He has assisted investors, developers and banks navigating Tennessee's brownfield redevelopment program, facilitating dozens of the state's landmark projects including HCA's headquarters, River North and Hill Center Sylvan Heights.
