RVL® is a business, intellectual property, and technology firm,
building today’s company’s for tomorrow’s economy.


As reformed entrepreneurs, we know firsthand what it takes to launch and scale an idea. Initially, your legal needs are all about precision, whether it’s proper entity formation or securing certain rights to launch. As your venture gains momentum and expands, you need not only precision but depth, insight, and perhaps a little moxie for the various situations you encounter. Our very reason for (corporate) existence is to cover your everyday legal needs so you can focus on growth.

Our clients range from biotechs with significant IP assets to your classic two-coders-and-a-dream. We help both individuals and companies at various stages protect, assert, and monetize their intellectual property - inventions, slogans, back-of-napkin books and songs, you name it. For our corporate clients, we act as outside general counsel, offering the gamut of regulatory, securities, and transactional services on a first-name, text-if-you-like, no-hiding-behind-secretaries basis.

Our first priority is providing excellent service, but we also care how we go about doing that. We’re proud to be Tennessee’s only B Corp® law firm and Best for the World awardee. Someone once said lawyers were good for nothing. Well, we’ve taken that to heart. We believe that the challenging work of building today’s companies for tomorrow’s economies goes hand-in-hand with positively impacting the environmental and social fabric of our community.
