JBBG is thrilled to announce the addition of attorney Gregory C. Sowell to the firm.
While Greg has four decades of legal experience in many areas of law practice, Greg’s practice is focused in the areas of business formations, dissolutions and transfers (and any disputes that may arise), commercial real estate and in providing general counsel and trial services in both state and federal courts to local and state governments, including the Unified Government of Athens-Clarke County, the Georgia Department of Transportation, the Athens Housing Authority, and the Athens Downtown Development Authority.
Greg has been involved in many bar-related service activities including a term as President of the University of Georgia Law School Association and membership on the Board of Governors of the State Bar of Georgia and the Disciplinary Board of the State Bar. Greg currently serves as the President of the Western Judicial Circuit (Athens-Clarke and Oconee) Bar Association and as Editor of Calendar Call, the publication of the General Practice and Trial Section of the State Bar.
A native of South Georgia, Greg was born in Vidalia and later moved to Tifton. Greg graduated from the University of Georgia College of Business with a B.B.A. in economics in 1980. He then received his Juris Doctor from the University of Georgia School of Law in 1983. Greg and his wife Leah reside in the Athens area. They have three children and six grandchildren.
James Bates Brannan Groover LLP is excited to have the commitment, principles, and expertise that Greg brings to the team.
