Kenneth L. Campbell

Ken Campbell is a partner in the law firm of Baker, Campbell & Parsons and is president of Baker, Campbell & Parsons Title Services, Inc.

A native of Oak Ridge, Tennessee, Ken attended Vanderbilt University on a basketball scholarship and received his B.A. in 1968 and his J.D. in 1972. Between college and law school, he was a math teacher and basketball coach at a high school in Blount County. Ken received his M.B.A. from Belmont University in 1990 and then served for 10 years as an adjunct professor of business law in the M.B.A. program. He is also a Certified Financial Planner.

Ken is licensed to practice in Tennessee and has been engaged in the practice of law for 37 years. He has been with Baker, Campbell & Parsons since 1981. Ken is a member of the American, Tennessee and Nashville Bar Associations. Through the law firm and title company, Ken represents banks and mortgage lenders in real estate lending matters. His clients include Pinnacle National Bank in Nashville.

His real estate development practice includes representation of a real estate investment entity with Provident Life Insurance Company as one of the owners. The entity partnered with Hines Interests, the world’s largest office developer, in a 12-year transformation of 1,050 acres of Williamson County farmland into Cool Springs, one of the premier mixed-use developments in the Southeast. He is presently representing the owner-developer of an 86 acre multi-use development adjacent to the Nissan plant in Smyrna, Tennessee.

Among his other practice areas are specialized litigation, in the areas of real estate, tax and business (a recent case in the Tennessee Court of Appeals affirmed a trial court dismissal of a specific performance claim against a client); federal and state taxation; estate planning; and probate. He combines his real estate and taxation knowledge by being a frequent speaker at seminars on like-kind exchanges. While his practice areas are diverse, a legal problem often involves more than one of them, and he brings a broad legal and business perspective to bear on that problem.

Ken resides in East Nashville with his wife, Susie Myers Campbell, an insurance agent for Martin-Zerfoss. In his spare time, Ken is a nationally ranked senior tennis player. He was chief manager of a development company that converted a historic downtown Nashville office building into residential lofts. His civic activities include being the 2007 Chair of the board of directors of the Brentwood Cool Springs Chamber of Commerce.
