Chief Executive Officer
As CEO, Tara Williams provides centralized and focused leadership for GrowPath.
After practicing law and managing law firms for almost 30 years, Tara is acutely familiar with what it takes to run, operate, and grow a practice. Indeed, she spent her first 12 years as an intellectual property lawyer. Her duties included monitoring and maintaining the complex filing and docketing systems of IP cases.
As a plaintiffs’ attorney for more than 15 years, she also managed a volume case load and experienced the pressures of such caseloads. In light of her success with those pressures, she ultimately helped develop and assess the workflow, systems, and procedures of her firm. She directly contributed to the growth of one of the largest plaintiffs’ firms in the Southeast.
This firm, the Law Offices of James Scott Farrin, became GrowPath’s pilot firm. Firm Founder and President, James S. Farrin, said, “Tara is the right leader for GrowPath. She has the right blend of law firm and technology experience. She is the one to lead GrowPath into the future.”
Tara’s broad experience is a perfect foundation for her as she takes the reins at GrowPath. One of Tara’s greatest strengths is that she understands what lawyers want and what they care about. More than that, she cares about details that firms may not even know to think about.
Beginning with her intellectual property work, Tara has spent her career partnering with many entrepreneurs and learning what fledgling and newly-established companies must do to succeed. Given Tara’s deep understanding of behind-the-scenes operations, GrowPath is now positioned for tremendous success under her leadership.
