FMG is a specialty litigation firm representing clients in the areas of Business Liability and Insurance Law, Commercial and Complex Litigation, Construction and Design Law, Government Law, and Labor and Employment Law.

One of the largest law firms in Cobb County, FMG was founded in 1997 by three nationally known leaders in the practice areas of government, labor, and construction law.
