About Taylor English Duma LLP

Taylor English is a full-service, Georgia-based firm with a unique model combining brick-and-mortar and remote legal services. The firm represents clients in more than 25 practice areas, including litigation, finance, employment and labor relations, data privacy, and real estate.

Collaborative, Clients-First Culture

Founding partners Scott Duma, Joseph English, and Marc Taylor came together in 2005 to build a firm that would fulfill their vision of providing better value to clients. Since its founding, the firm has grown rapidly from just 4 to nearly 200 attorneys today. The founders attribute the quick, organic growth to the firm’s collaborative, flexible environment and unique “real time” compensation model. “Someone else didn’t have to lose for me to win” is how English explains why he was drawn to the firm, and this model has clearly shown to be successful.

Sports and Entertainment

Taylor English lawyers are very active in the sports and entertainment field. They represent fellow Atlanta enterprises Turner Broadcasting Systems and the Braves Baseball club. Firm litigators have successfully defended an artificial turf manufacturer in a patent suit and won a suit that allowed an obstacle-race client to have its races aired on ESPN. The firm attorneys also regularly draft and negotiate talent, screenwriter, and producer agreements for feature films and television productions.

Taylor English also has a specialty in representing food and beverage companies in myriad areas. The firm regularly represents restaurateurs and restaurants in connection with all legal matters, such as entity structuring and formation, contracts, trademark registration and licensing, alcohol beverage and related licensing, acquisitions and other general corporate matters. The firm has also represented coffee bars, craft breweries, and restaurant franchisees in hundreds of leases throughout the country. One of the firm’s first clients was the south’s favorite fried chicken chain, Popeyes Chicken, and the restaurants former GC is now partner at the firm.

Remote Work

While many Taylor English lawyers work out of the firm’s Atlanta headquarters, the firm was on the remote-work trend long before COVID-19 hit. In 2017, Taylor English expanded its footprint by bringing on remote partners. Through this hybrid model, combining the benefits of a virtual firm with the brick-and-mortar headquarters, the firm reaches all areas of the country while keepings costs and client billable rates low. Each remote partner is paired with a senior attorney in the Atlanta office to guide them through the firm’s infrastructure. The firm thus has “offices” in New York, Pennsylvania, Illinois, North Carolina, Tennessee, Florida, Texas, California, and Washington, DC.
