While I was General Counsel for LakePoint Sports, I gained firsthand experience of Taylor English’s client driven approach to providing the highest-quality legal services. The Taylor English model is unique to the legal market. The opportunity to work with high caliber lawyers focused on delivering value to clients resonates with how I have practiced law over my twenty year career. This is a firm filled with lawyers who thrive on seeking cost effective, results oriented solutions for the legal needs of clients.

Jonathan D. Crumly Sr. has tried many cases and has substantial experience in numerous forms of alternative dispute resolution. Mr. Crumly’s expertise in litigation and arbitral forums enhances his practical approach to negotiations of construction contracts and development agreements for various developers, general contractors, and subcontractors on projects ranging in size from smaller expansions to developments with budgets of more than $100 million. His practical approach to settling disputes reflects his commitment to finding a creative resolution to put an end to costly litigation or arbitration.

Mr. Crumly concentrates in the areas of construction law, commercial litigation, commercial law, and First Amendment Law. He has more than twenty years of experience in handling construction industry disputes, including various types of breach of contract claims, lien claims, defective construction claims, defective construction product claims, water intrusion litigation, mold claims, and payment and performance bond claims. Mr. Crumly has mediated more than 400 disputes representing building property managers, both landlords and tenants, building product manufacturers, lenders, and real estate developers.

Prior to joining Taylor English, Mr. Crumly served as General Counsel for LakePoint Sports, a 1,300 acre mixed use development that has become the premier sports vacation destination in the country. There, he drafted, negotiated, and provided legal support for all sports operations, hospitality developments, retail developments, entertainment developments, as well as all construction and design contracts for infrastructure and vertical construction. Preceding his position at LakePoint, Mr. Crumly was a founding partner of Maner Crumly Chambliss LLP and a partner at Alston & Bird LLP. 

Mr. Crumly assisted in the representation of a national multi-family developer in defending the first ever class action lawsuit arising from mold inhalation claims by residents. He has obtained a $7,400,000 jury verdict for a client whose employees stole sensitive company data to form a competing business, a defense verdict for a real estate developer who faced damages claims in excess of $1,000,000, and has won arbitration awards for his clients as large as $7,900,000.  For LakePoint Sports, he negotiated the design, construction management and other agreements with an aggregate development budget exceeding $100,000,000. In 2006, he was selected as a Georgia Super Lawyer Rising Star by Atlanta Magazine / Law and Politics Magazine in their annual list of top lawyers in the state of Georgia.
