Brett A. Reynolds
Brett Reynolds likes the variety a career in law brings. He practices primarily in residential and commercial real estate, banking, corporate law and transactional law. His extensive knowledge of the law and community involvement brought him a high honor: Kentucky Bar Association’s Outstanding Young Lawyer Award in 2004. “I am particularly proud of receiving that recognition,” Brett says. “I think it speaks well to the flexibility the firm gives me to participate in community activities and to Warren County’s rich legacy of charitable giving. I want to be known for my ability as a lawyer, but also for how I have served the community as a whole.”
Brett concentrates much of his work in the area of business law, representing the interests of financial institutions and other creditors. He also assists entrepreneurs who are in the process of incorporating a business and forming a board of directors, giving legal advice relating to choice of entity, formation and operational issues.
Brett provides services as an agent for First American Title Insurance Company, including issuing title insurance policies and conducting both residential and commercial closings. Brett represents buyers and sellers in both residential and commercial sales from the inception of the deal through closing. He has assisted both sellers and buyers in the negotiation and acquisition of retail, manufacturing and service businesses as well as commercial asset purchase and stock purchase transactions and large mergers and acquisitions.
Brett enjoys working in all areas of real estate including matters that deal with lenders, title searches, non-recourse financing, landlord-tenant law, commercial transactions, retail, and industrial.
Brett is the only attorney in Western Kentucky with strong knowledge of immigration law, so the firm handles cases all over the state and even some outside of Kentucky since the law is federal, and not state-specific.
A flexible work schedule at ELPO allows Brett time for charitable and volunteer work in the community and time for his two sons. He has served as President of the Public Theater of Kentucky. He also serves on the ethics committee for the Kentucky Bar Association and as a member of the KBA’s Ethics Hotline. “The pace of life in Bowling Green perfectly suits me as someone who wants to do good work but also live a life outside of work,” Brett says. Brett is a graduate of the 2013 class of Leadership Kentucky, and Brett was recently appointed to Champion Petfoods USA Inc.’s Board of Directors.
Among his biggest community commitments is his service to the Big Brothers/Big Sisters program. He served on the Board of Directors for the organization and has a long-term relationship with his little brother. He’s known his little brother for over a decade, watching him grow into a high school student and graduating from college. “That’s been one of the most significant relationships I’ve had in my life,” Brett says.
