Henry Chalmers solves business challenges. As Co-Chair of the firm’s Litigation group, he works with clients to enforce their legal rights, resolve disputes, and achieve business goals through litigation, arbitration, mediation, and strategic counseling. He focuses his practice on complex litigation and alternative dispute resolution on behalf of public and closely-held companies, consumer reporting agencies (CRAs), educational institutions, fiduciaries, and government entities, for whom he handles a wide-variety of matters including contract disputes, business torts, RICO claims, Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) claims, class actions, fiduciary duty disputes, data breach prevention and response, privacy and PCI compliance, real estate and affordable housing disputes, hospitality industry transactions, and fraud and misrepresentation claims. Henry has successfully represented clients as plaintiffs and defendants in trials, appeals, arbitrations, and mediations across the country, with a particular concentration on, and familiarity with, the state and federal courts in the metropolitan Atlanta area. He also serves as an Arbitrator with the American Arbitration Association, and he writes and speaks frequently on business litigation and alternative dispute resolution topics.
Before joining Arnall Golden Gregory, Henry was a law clerk to the Honorable Robert H. Hall, United States District Court for the Northern District of Georgia, and he worked in Belize, Central America, for a year as a Fellow with the Human Rights Commission of Belize. For the past decade he has held various leadership positions in the American Bar Association’s (ABA) Section of Litigation.
Henry also provides pro bono legal services to indigent clients through the Atlanta Volunteer Lawyers Foundation. And when he’s away from work, he enjoys whitewater kayaking, mountain biking, camping, and spending time with his family.
