Nashville attorney Deborah Wagnon has a long and impressive list of major clients she has represented in every area of entertainment from the stage to film and music.

Wagnon recently joined Cornelius & Collins to lead a new entertainment and sports law division. Before that, Wagnon was a shareholder with Greenberg Traurig law firm and was also a former partner/shareholder and lead attorney in the Nashville office of John Mason Partners.

Wagnon was also directly involved in the planning and organizational efforts, which helped create what is now the third annual Nashville Screenwriters Conference. The event begins today and continues through May 20 at the Hermitage Hotel.

Wagnon relocated to Nashville in 1994 after spending several years working in Hollywood. She says any aspiring screenwriter needs to understand they are working in a very specialized area and truly cannot function effectively without experienced legal support and assistance.
