Barron Lakeman is Chief Development Officer for Southern Veterinary Partners. Barron was born and raised in Birmingham and obtained his undergraduate degree from Auburn University and his J.D. from the University of Alabama School of Law. After law school, Barron spent a few years working as a trial attorney for a larger law firm in Birmingham before deciding to open his own law firm in 2007.
Barron’s law practice focused primarily on closing real estate transactions and handling a wide range of corporate legal matters. However, his disdain for pushing paper behind a desk all day caused Barron to leave the traditional practice of law and join Southern Veterinary Partners in a role where he can get out of the office and work with other business owners who share the same entrepreneurial spirit.
Barron and his wife recently moved to Auburn, Alabama (WAR EAGLE!) where they live with their three daughters. Away from work, Barron enjoys spending time with his family and playing golf.
