Doug Sloan is joining Bone McAllester Norton PLLC to lead the firm’s land use and zoning practice.


He has more than 15 years of experience in government relations and land use and zoning regulations.

Most recently, Sloan served as the vice president and chief legal officer at the Metro Nashville Airport Authority. The airport embarked on a $1.2 billion expansion during his tenure.

A native Nashvillian, Sloan is best known locally for seeing Nashville through immense growth during his tenure leading the Metro Planning Department. He also served in the Office of Mayor Karl Dean, where he managed land purchases for Nashville after the 2010 flood and as liaison to the Tennessee General Assembly for the city.

He advised a variety of Metropolitan Government departments throughout his career, including Codes, Planning, Public Works and Water Services.

“I’ve admired Bone McAllester Norton’s work for a long time, and it’s an honor to join a firm of this caliber,” Sloan says. “I am looking forward to serving as a resource for real estate professionals and developers in the Nashville area and continuing to play a role in this city’s long-term and responsible growth.”

Sloan earned his bachelor’s degree from Middle Tennessee State University and his J.D. from Nashville School of Law.
