Ms. Curry’s practice is focused primarily on business disputes, complex commercial litigation, and evaluating and resolving insurance coverage disputes.  In her insurance coverage practice, Ms. Curry has represented both insurance companies and policyholders and was part of the team at SRVH that successfully eliminated a $150 million verdict on appeal on behalf of a group of insurers in relation to the historical 2010 flood.  See Opry Mills Mall Ltd. Partnership v. Arch Ins. Co., 2018 WL 576194 (Tenn. Ct. App. Jan. 26, 2018).  Ms. Curry also assists clients in the often stressful process of responding to governmental investigations and inquiries as well as other commercial litigation, including contract claims, business torts, construction disputes, insurance coverage disputes, professional liability, health care litigation, and complex business disputes.  Ms. Curry practices at both the trial level and in the appellate courts in both state and federal courts.  In addition to her courtroom practice, Ms. Curry also advises clients on litigation assessment and avoidance outside of the litigation process.

Ms. Curry graduated with honors from the University of the South in Sewanee, TN and earned her J.D. from Vanderbilt University Law School, where she was a member of the Order of the Coif. She also received first honors in five individual courses at Vanderbilt, including Corporations, Federal Tax Law, Corporate Finance, and Regulatory State. Ms. Curry was a graduate of the Law & Business Program and was a member of the Vanderbilt Law Review, where she served as the senior articles editor.

Prior to joining Sherrard Roe Voigt & Harbison, Ms. Curry served as a law clerk to the Honorable Jane B. Stranch, U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit. During law school, she also interned for the Honorable John T. Nixon, U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Tennessee.

Before starting law school, Ms. Curry served as a police officer for the Metropolitan Nashville Police Department for approximately four years. For a majority of that time, she served as patrol officer for the South Nashville police precinct.
