Erin Phillips Hughes

Healthcare companies work with Erin Hughes when they need assistance with leasing and transactional matters.  Large and small companies benefit from her dedication and passion for navigating clients through difficult transactions and getting them back to business.  

Before joining Waller to focus on real estate, Erin spent years assisting clients who were starting businesses, involved in mergers and acquisitions, and implementing private securities offerings. Joining Waller brought her full circle to what initially drove her to the law, stemming from her work with a real estate developer in Knoxville, Tennessee-- navigating clients through real estate transactions.  Her diverse background provides her with the rare ability to bring a broad perspective to her clients.

Taking a holistic approach, and finding unique ways to achieve solutions for her clients, is Erin’s forte.
