The partners at HunterMaclean, a leading business law firm in Savannah and Brunswick, Georgia, have elected Brad Harmon to serve as managing partner. He succeeds Frank Macgill, who has served on the firm’s management committee since 2005 and as its managing partner since 2010.
As managing partner, Harmon will lead the HunterMaclean management committee, which guides firm strategy, sets long-term vision, and directs firm operations. Harold Yellin and Tom Cullen form the balance of the management team. Harmon has served on the management committee for two years, ensuring a smooth transition of firm management.
Harmon joined HunterMaclean in 2006 and has built a strong practice in business litigation and logistics law. In addition to his service on the management committee, Harmon has held other leadership positions within the firm, including deputy general counsel and chairperson of the logistics practice. Harmon was recognized by Georgia Trend as one of 2015’s 40 Under 40 Outstanding Georgians, and the Fulton Daily Report has honored him as a Georgia lawyer under 40 making an impact in the state. He has repeatedly been named a Georgia Super Lawyers Rising Star and has been recognized by Business in Savannah as a GenerationNEXT Rising Star of Business.
“Brad is an outstanding attorney and a strong leader with a vision of how the firm can continue to develop and grow,” said Frank Macgill, outgoing managing partner. “He is dedicated to success for his clients, his partners, and the firm as a whole. I am confident that his unique combination of innovation and experience will be of great value to HunterMaclean.”
From his early years as an associate, Harmon has been involved in community service. He currently serves on the boards of Union Mission and Savannah Technical College Foundation and is recent past president of the Live Oak Public Libraries Foundation. He was co-chairman of the attorneys division of the United Way of the Coastal Empire and is a graduate of Leadership Savannah.
Harmon graduated from the University of Tennessee-Knoxville with a B.A. in Political Science and then attended Mercer University Walter F. George School of Law.
