Halsey Knapp regularly advises clients on crisis management and best practices with particular emphasis on business arrangements, limited liability entity operating agreements, real estate transactions, graceful employment departures, and more antagonistic, high stakes, “bet the company” business divorces and litigation. Consequently, Halsey frequently is asked to handle relationship issues with clients, suppliers, competitors, owners, operators and the occasional government prosecutor or regulator. Although Chambers USA Guide to America’s Leading Lawyers for Business (“Chambers”) cited Halsey for being a “talented trial lawyer noted for being tenacious”, Halsey also brings a “solution-oriented” approach to disputes. Halsey brings judgment and wisdom to any negotiating table. He is also a trained and registered neutral and serves as a Chairman of the Atlanta Bar Association’s Dispute Resolution Section.

Among his peers, Halsey is described as an “aggressive and attentive litigator with good trial experience and a strong reputation for business break up cases (Chambers).” Halsey has been recognized by his peers as a top 100 Lawyer in Georgia since 2009 and as a Super Lawyer since 2004, which suitably fits the pre-eminent business litigation practice of Krevolin Horst, his current home.

“Halsey took on a complex high-dollar case that had been mishandled by two previous law firms. He and Patricia Minton have turned it around from likely failure to probable success, which was close to a miracle.”

Halsey received his undergraduate degree in 1977 from Cornell University before earning his law degree in 1980 from Emory University School of Law, where he received the Best Brief Award in the Law Day Competition and served as President of the Student Bar Association. His association with Emory continues to this day as a Master, Executive Committee Member and former President of the Lamar Inn of Court and a member of its Board of Law Advisors. Halsey has always been an active member of the legal community serving as an officer of the 11th Circuit Historical Society, the Federal Bar Association’s Special Committees on the Role of Magistrate Judges (2010) and the Local Rules for the Northern District of Georgia (2012-2014), and the Fulton County Business Court Committee. Halsey frequently speaks on jury selection, business litigation and alternate dispute resolution topics. He is also a frequent contributor to the Wall Street Journal’s Risk & Compliance Journal.
