Teresa Bult

Administrative Partner & General Counsel
Constangy, Brooks, Smith & Prophete, LLP

First and foremost, Teresa is a relationship partner for her corporate clients in the employment defense space, and a very practical "problem solver."? She is constantly trying to figure out how to connect her clients to resources that can make their jobs easier, help them navigate through tricky employment and HR issues, as well as connecting them to the excellent attorneys at Constangy throughout the U.S.

In her more than 20 years of practice as a defense-side employment litigation attorney (all years at Constangy), she has litigated cases and counseled clients on almost all conceivable employment-related issues involving everything from co-workers literally spray-painting each other, to employees sending inappropriate texts, to serious whistleblowing and collective and individual wage claims. She’s learned that employment law creates a strange world, and partly because of that, she can't imagine doing anything else. She has taken multiple cases to trial and has argued in front of the appellate courts. She loves mediating, public speaking, mentoring, and making employment law training fun.

Teresa is based in Nashville, but also serves as Administrative Partner and General Counsel at Constangy, has been named to Best Lawyers in America, and the Nashville Business Journal (Women of Influence). She’s served as co-chair of the ABA Litigation Section's Employment and Labor Relations Law Committee, and Teresa was the founding chair of Constangy’s Women's Network.
