The Nashville School of Law community is deeply saddened by the passing of NSL Aumnus Bob Ballow ’63.

Mr. Ballow was one of our School’s most distinguished graduates.  During his six decades of practice, he became nationally and internationally renown for his skill and expertise in the area of media labor relations.

Mr. Ballow started his law firm, King & Ballow, with Frank S. King in the late 60’s.  He represented various media companies all over the country. 

He prided himself in his responsive service to his clients, and he passed on his skills to many young lawyers. He was consistently included on the lists of best lawyers in Tennessee and the United States.

“The trustees, faculty, students, and staff of the Nashville School of Law express our condolences to Bob’s family, as well as our gratitude for the positive influence he had on us.”
