Noted tech attorney moves to Frost Brown Todd

Film Festival president spent three years at Dickinson Wright

Frost Brown Todd has recruited a prominent local technology lawyer who also produces films and broadcast programs and is the 2014-15 president of the Nashville Film Festival.

Kelly Frey joined Frost Brown Todd as a member after spending almost three years at the local office of Dickinson Wright. Before that, he worked for more than seven years at Baker Donelson Bearman Caldwell & Berkowitz. His work focuses on information technology and intellectual property transactions as well as corporate governance matters. He is one of less than 10 practicing attorneys selected as a fellow of the World Technology Network, has authored the legal practice guide Frey on Intellectual Property and Technology Transactions and is general counsel to the Ethics and Compliance Officer Association.

Frey's hiring is the latest in a steady stream of top-level hires by Frost Brown Todd's Nashville leadership team. The firm, which now is home to more than 30 attorneys at its Pinnacle at Symphony Place offices, most recently brought in experienced lawyers focused on the payments industry and international contracts.

On the film side, Frey represents a number of independent film productions, including The Identical (starring Ray Liotta, Seth Green, and Ashley Judd) where he has been credited as associate producer.
