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 Department 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 construction, health care, hospitality, manufacturing, aviation, telecommunications and banking industries.

Ms. Horn began her career as a certified public accountant with PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP. After law school, she joined the Atlanta office of a renowned, full-service law firm, where she advised clients in securities, mergers and acquisitions, and general corporate matters. After several years, she joined an international law firm and continued this practice.

Ms. Horn next spent several years in house, including as division counsel for Georgia-Pacific LLC’s 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.
