About Hunter Maclean

HunterMaclean marked its 135th anniversary in 2014, making it one of the oldest law firms in Georgia.

The Firm has engaged in the general practice of law since 1879, when Walter G. Charlton, a graduate of the law department of the University of Virginia, formed a partnership with N.C. Collier, who was later a United States Judge in New Mexico. J. Randolph Anderson joined the firm in 1891, and the Firm was re-named Charlton, Mackall & Anderson. J. Randolph Anderson served as lieutenant governor of Georgia and also helped form the railroad lines that became the Seaboard Coast Line Railroad, now part of CSX. In later years, the Firm acted as system-wide counsel for the Seaboard Coast Line in employment discrimination and other matters, and it continues to serve CSX. The Firm became Anderson, Cann & Cann in 1903. One of its specialties was maritime law, a practice it established through acting as a regional representative of various London Protection and Indemnity Clubs. HunterMaclean continues to handle “P & I” matters and today represents an expanded number of maritime interests.

In 1946, Anderson, Cann, Dunn & Houlihan formed a seven-man firm when it merged with Connerat, Hunter & Cubbedge. In 1980 the Firm, then known as Hunter, Houlihan, Maclean, Exley, Dunn & Connerat. P.C., became Hunter, Maclean, Exley & Dunn, P.C.

Today, HunterMaclean continues to grow. In 1995, the Firm merged with Miller, Simpson and Tatum in Savannah. In 1999, former partners of Chamlee, Dubus and Sipple, and Ronald H. Cohen joined the Firm. In 2002, the Firm expanded to include an office in Brunswick, Georgia.
