Gregory R. Hanthorn retired from Jones Day, where he served as an associate, partner (16 years), and of counsel (12 years). For nearly 40 years, he successfully tried disputes ranging from multimonth jury and bench trials to "no discovery" arbitrations. Greg has extensive experience in the alphabet soup of consumer class actions (including TCPA, FDCPA, RICO, ERISA, FCRA, and hybrid TILA/usury cases) and in major product liability, federal Fair Credit Reporting Act, and leveraged buyout fraud litigation.

Greg's background and experience include obtaining a permanent injunction against union organizers who were demonstrating against a property owner hosting events during the Democratic National Convention, as well as trial court and appellate victories clarifying the duties owed by individual and professional fiduciaries. In the product liability arena, Greg represented R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Company in a four-month jury trial in Shelby County, Tennessee (defense verdict) and has represented other manufacturers of products ranging from complex medical devices to respirators used by workers in manufacturing operations.

Greg has been recognized by Best Lawyers and SuperLawyers in the areas of Commercial and Business Litigation for over a decade, is a co-chair of the Federal Practice Task Force of the Litigation Section of the American Bar Association, and is also a past chair of the Litigation Section's Ethics and Professionalism Committee. He is a member of the Executive Committee of the Judge Clarence Cooper Inn of Court and past president of the Inn, a past member of Berry College's board of visitors and of the board of advisors of the Besharat Arts Foundation, and a past chair of the board of directors of the Atlanta Shakespeare Company.
