MEMPHIS, TN – February 6, 2019- Glankler Brown member Michael P. Coury has been named a Fellow of the Tennessee Bar Foundation, an association of 868 attorneys across the state. Invitations to membership, which is a position of honor, were extended to 24 attorneys this year by the Board of Trustees. The introduction of new Fellows took place in January at the annual Fellows’ Dinner in Nashville.
The Bar Foundation’s purpose is two-fold: to honor attorneys who have distinguished themselves in the profession and community and to administer a grant making program. That project, known by its acronym “IOLTA” (Interest On Lawyers’ Trust Accounts), has awarded grants in excess of $22,000,000 to law-related, public interest projects throughout Tennessee.
Coury concentrates his practice in bankruptcy and creditors’ rights law, business reorganizations, workouts, and business and commercial litigation. Coury is a Fellow with the American College of Bankruptcy and has been honored by The Best Lawyers in America in the fields of Bankruptcy & Creditor/Debtor Rights, Bankruptcy Litigation and Commercial Litigation, and by the Mid-South Super Lawyers in the field of Bankruptcy & Creditor/Debtor Rights. Coury is a Board Certified Specialist in Business Bankruptcy Law.
