The Business Journals’ Influencers: Law spotlights attorneys who are driving business for their employers, and for their clients, in cities across the country. The 100 individuals identified serve both large, nationally known ventures and smaller, locally-focused entities.
Cantley was one of three Louisville-based attorneys selected to this year’s list, along with Scott Catlett of Yum Brands Inc. and Maria Fernandez of Fernandez Haynes & Moloney. These executives were identified in conjunction with editors and staff writers across The Business Journals’ network of more than 40 publications, including Louisville Business First. Each has been featured as part of The Business Journals’ continuing coverage of the newsmakers in those cities. Louisville Business First featured an in-depth profile on Cantley earlier this year.
