Profile

Emily Horn’s experience as in-house legal counsel and as a certified public accountant enables her to truly understand her clients’ businesses and to offer them practical solutions. As a member of the Corporate and Business practice group of Taylor English, Ms. Horn advises clients on mergers and acquisitions, securities issuances and regulation, the use of Employee Stock Ownership Plans (ESOPs), commercial contracts, corporate governance and general corporate matters. Ms. Horn has represented a variety of clients, including corporate ESOP sponsors, ESOP trustees, and public and private companies in the health care, hospitality, manufacturing, aviation, telecommunications and banking industries.

Ms. Horn began her career as a certified public accountant with PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP, auditing public companies. After law school, she joined the Atlanta office of Powell Goldstein LLP, where she advised clients in securities, mergers and acquisitions, and general corporate matters. After several years, she joined Kilpatrick Stockton LLP and continued this practice. Ms. Horn later joined a former client in a securities and corporate compliance role, assisting with registration of securities as well as Exchange Act reporting and NYSE compliance matters.

Ms. Horn next spent three years with Georgia-Pacific LLC as division counsel for the GP Professional division and later the Communication Papers division. In this role, she advised the management team regarding legal issues and drafted and negotiated commercial contracts (both customer- and supplier-facing), including distribution, supply, procurement, consulting, marketing, rebate, lease and confidentiality agreements in a complex business-to-business distribution model and also a direct-to-consumer model.

Ms. Horn returned to private practice when she joined Taylor English in 2013. When not practicing law, Ms. Horn spends time with her adorable children, husband and dogs. She also enjoys her role as a board member of Kate’s Club, a non-profit serving children who have lost a parent or sibling.
