Alice Chapman joined MP&F in 1995 as a staff associate and became a partner in 2011, and is the only person to rise from an entry-level position to an equity member of the firm. Along the way, she has worked for an array of clients at the local, regional and national levels, leading award-winning campaigns and coordinating winning strategies for several public affairs initiatives.
Alice’s specialties include grassroots campaigns, media relations and event planning. Her current clients include TriStar Health, the Consumer Healthcare Products Association and Acumen Physician Solutions.
She led MP&F’s successful, multiyear grassroots campaign in support of wine sales in Tennessee’s retail food stores on behalf of the Red White and Food coalition. The campaign resulted in the passage of local referendums in 78 municipalities and a historic change to the state law that previously limited wine sales to retail liquor stores.
