FRANKLIN, Tenn. – Kelly L. Frey, a partner in Nelson Mullins Riley & Scarborough LLP’s Nashville office, has been named president of the Franklin Theatre Board effective immediately.
The 297-seat Franklin Theatre is a historic movie house originally built in 1937 and reopened in 2011 as a state-of-the-art live music showplace and multi-purpose venue. Musical highlights since reopening have included hundreds of live concerts from diverse genres as well as films, and it serves as host to theatrical productions, corporate functions, community events, and charity events.
“The Franklin Theatre has a unique charm for creating special experiences that touch the lives of our patrons, performers, and community every day. I’m humbled to be asked to serve in this capacity,” Frey said.
Frey has served as executive producer for half a dozen feature films shot in the local area over the last couple of years and served as past-president of the Nashville Film Festival and is current president of the Nashville Japanese Film Festival. He is known for his work in technology law and was selected last year as both “Best of the Bar” in Technology Law by the Nashville Business Journal and Nashville “Lawyer of the Year” by Best Lawyers in America® in Information Technology. He is author of the legal treatise “Frey on Technology Transactions and Intellectual Property” and one of the few attorneys in private practice to be named a Fellow of the World Technology Network (for legal work deemed by the other Fellows of the WTN as “most likely to be of long-term significance”). Other Fellows include such tech notables as Mark Zuckerberg (Facebook), Elon Musk (Tesla), and Bill Gates (Microsoft).
