ATLANTA - Sept. 18. 2014 - The Krystal Company’s chief legal officer, Sloane Perras, was named a "Rising Star" by Atlanta’s top legal publication, The Daily Report. Each year, the editors handpick 40 lawyers under 40 who were highly recommended by their peers.
A cum laude graduate of University of Georgia School of Law, Perras started her legal career clerking for Chief Judge William T. Boyett of the Superior Court for the Conasauga Judicial Circuit. She previously served nearly six years in senior counsel roles at Aaron’s Inc. and Americold, and is licensed to practice law in five states. Perras joined The Krystal Company in May 2013 as its first general counsel.
"It is an honor to receive this respect from my colleagues, friends and associates," said Perras. "It is a gift to be recognized for doing what I love to do – work with an iconic organization like The Krystal Company and give back to the up-and-coming lawyers in my community."
Perras is active in the local legal community as a member of the Atlanta Bar Association and as the Secretary of the ACC Georgia Chapter. She is also a volunteer for Pro Bono Partnership, an Atlanta-based legal aid organization. She serves on the Advisory Counsel for the National Association of Minority and Women Owned Law Firms (NAMWOLF) and the Faculty Advisory board for the Women, Influence & Power in the Law Conference 2014.
