Kim Vance is a shareholder in the Labor and Employment Group at Baker Donelson’s Nashville office. She has nearly twenty years of experience representing management in every aspect of labor and employment law. “Kim is unique. She has the mind of a business owner and the intellect of a great lawyer. This combination has benefited our company in very meaningful ways,” said Joe Scarlett, Chairman and former CEO at Tractor Supply Company, where Ms. Vance served as General Counsel from 2003 until recently.

In addition to defending companies in employment litigation, Ms. Vance’s practice focuses upon:

presenting in-house management training programs to reduce employment related legal risks for companies across the nation;

counseling management clients through auditing human resources policies and practices to reduce legal risks; and

developing pre-litigation strategies to improve available defenses in preparation for litigation.

She has represented management clients in State and Federal Courts and in defense of administrative proceedings before the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, State Human Rights Commissions, State Unemployment Commissions, Arbitrators, the National Labor Relations Board and the Department of Labor.
