There are 62 sections within the ACTL, representing each state in the United States and each province in Canada, with some populous states divided into two sections, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. Each section has a state or province committee, whose members are appointed from among the sections. The committees are the backbone of the College and perform significant tasks, such as fellowship nominations and the organization of local outreach activities.
“Joe will provide a wealth of knowledge and experience to this committee,” said Donald Clark, Jr., chairman of Butler Snow. “We look forward to his leadership as he serves the ACTL.”
Welborn has more than 28 years of trial experience in business and commercial litigation including shareholder, corporate merger and acquisition, banking, contractual, real estate, intellectual property and business tort disputes. He also is experienced in representing individuals and businesses in civil rights litigation as well as catastrophic personal injury and wrongful death cases.
Welborn was named a fellow of the ACTL earlier this year. He is also a fellow of the American and Nashville Bar Foundations and a member of the American, Tennessee and Nashville Bar Associations, the American Board of Trial Advocates and the American and Tennessee Associations for Justice. He received his bachelor’s degree from Rhodes College and his Juris Doctor from the University of Tennessee.
