Nathan Chong joined the firm as an Associate Attorney in 2019. His work involves commercial litigation, cargo claims, freight charge collections, contract review and negotiation, and all other types of transportation law matters within the purview of the firm’s practice.

Nathan finds transportation law fascinating. He enjoys expanding his knowledge about the intricacies of the transportation and logistics industry to enhance his understanding of the industry. Nathan’s work at the firm aligns extremely well with the interest in commercial and business litigation that he developed in law school and in his previous work.

During and immediately after law school, Nathan worked as a law clerk at Georgia law firms and as a legal intern at a Fortune 10 corporation. His responsibilities included researching legal issues and drafting documents involving a wide range of contracts and litigation. Nathan’s work at the firm utilizes the skills and knowledge he developed in those positions.

In college and law school, Nathan was active in a number of student activities and organizations. His moot court participation in law school cultivated his interest and ability in advocacy and litigation.

Nathan played baseball in college and was captain of his school’s NCAA Division I baseball team. He received national recognition in Baseball America as a ranked prospect in South Carolina. The Angels, Blue Jays, Cubs, Nationals, Orioles, Pirates, Rangers, Rays, Rockies, Twins, and Yankees recruited Nathan for the 2013 Major League Baseball draft.

Nathan grew up in Gwinnett and now lives in Duluth. He is a first-generation Korean-American who speaks conversational Korean. His leisure interests include playing the violin, and he enjoys staying active. Nathan’s love for baseball lives on, but his athletic ability now lends itself more to slow-pitch softball. He loves all things related to professional sports teams in Atlanta—especially the Braves.
