Chattanooga Lawyer Takes Legal Writing Honor

Tuesday, June 12, 2018
Chattanooga attorney Bob E. Lype will be honored with the Justice Joseph W. Henry Memorial Award for Outstanding Legal Writing at the Tennessee Bar Association's annual Convention, held at The Peabody in Memphis this week.

The Joe W. Henry Award is given each year to a member of the Tennessee Bar Association who contributes the most outstanding article to the TBA's monthly magazine, the Tennessee Bar Journal. Mr. Lype was chosen this year by a panel of judges for "How to Deal with Bullying, Threats and Physical Violence in the Workplace," which was published in the April 2017 edition.
This is Mr. Lype's second time to receive the award - a rare feat in Bar Journal history, officials said.

Mr. Lype is the principal of the Law Office of Bob E. Lype & Associates, where his practice includes representation of employers of all sizes in labor and employment law matters, including compliance counseling and advice, as well as handling litigation and disputes. His practice also involves business litigation and insurance defense work. He is a 1990 graduate of the University of Tennessee College of Law, with high honors, where he was elected to the Order of the Coif.

The Joe Henry award is named for Justice Joseph W. Henry, a former chief justice of the Tennessee Supreme Court, practicing lawyer, scholar and writer with a rare talent for clear, forceful and often dramatic prose. The award was established in 1981 to encourage scholarly yet practical writing to benefit members of the bar. The winner was chosen this year by a panel that included Judge Brandon Gibson of the Western Section Court of Appeals, former University of Memphis Cecil C. Humphreys School of Law Dean Peter Letsou and TBA President Lucian Pera.
