Faculty Spotlight: Rachel Lawson

It’s not often you find a lawyer who understands, truly, what it’s like to be an entrepreneur. But it’s because of that very fact Rachel Schaffer Lawson is pretty darn good at her job. Rachel grew up in an entrepreneurial family — both her mother and grandfather owned their own businesses — so it seemed quite natural that their offspring found the study of business alluring. Rachel triple majored in marketing, entrepreneurship and music business at Northeastern University in Boston. After graduating, she attended Loyola University College of Law in New Orleans, studying business law, intellectual property law, and entertainment law (as well as the occasional beignet). Her stint in the “Big Easy” also included an internship with the National Football League’s New Orleans Saints. When she decided she wanted to pursue entertainment law full time, she knew there was no better place than good ole’ Nashville. In 2011, one year after her move, she launched Schaffer Law Firm PLLC. She quickly discovered her passion and the firm’s mission; to provide quality and accessible legal services to innovative entrepreneurs, budding restaurateurs, impactful nonprofits, and the wide variety of arts and entertainment the city has to offer. Rachel never realized just how much she would love her job, but some of the best surprises often happen that way. She loves helping local entrepreneurs succeed in their business ventures and delights in seeing her clients open their doors for business for the very first time.
