Spencer Fane Bone McAllester is pleased to announce Will Stout has joined the Litigation and Dispute Resolution Practice Group as an associate in the firm’s Nashville office.
Stout’s private practice focuses on complex commercial construction matters, but his diverse experience also includes handling real estate, tax, and corporate transactions. This includes providing legal counsel to businesses and individuals related to business formation and tax controversies.
Importantly, Stout brings practical experience in engineering, giving him specific insight into construction and real estate issues and allowing him to efficiently and effectively communicate with general contractors, suppliers, architects, designers, engineers, and subcontractors on potential solutions. He has successfully resolved matters involving the Prompt Payment Act, mechanics’ and materialmen’s liens, change orders, interference, design defect claims, breach of contract, breach of warranty, negligence, and delay and impact claims.
“Spencer Fane maintains an intentional focus on building a bench commensurate with the needs of our growing client base,” said Charles Robert Bone, Office Managing Partner for Spencer Fane in Nashville. “Will’s unique blend of experience will not only help us better serve this market but also provide our firm with a collaborative resource for construction and real estate litigation matters. We believe he is an outstanding fit to a dynamic culture we take great pride in fostering and improving.”
In addition to work in private practice, Stout served as an Assistant Attorney General in the Tennessee Attorney General’s Office, where he gained valuable experience in litigation processes, especially those involving government agencies like the IRS and Tennessee Department of Revenue. He completed his undergraduate studies at Auburn University and later earned his Juris Doctor from the Vanderbilt Law School before completing a clerkship for the Hon. Corey Maze in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Alabama. During that time, he worked on high-profile political cases and other complex federal matters.
