Gabe Tucker

Gabe joined Fortif in August of 2021. After growing up in a military family and living throughout the United States and Europe, Gabe is excited to call Birmingham his home.

Gabe represents companies from their formation to their owners’ eventual exits, and through everything in between. Gabe’s experience in corporate transactions and estate planning allows him to advise clients with the long game in mind, ensuring that companies are structured in ways that create the greatest value for family members or future buyers. Gabe also enjoys helping clients think through matters related to economic development and public policy. He has experience advising chambers of commerce, companies, and policymakers on ways to grow the State’s economy.

Prior to working at Fortif, Gabe attended Cumberland School of Law. For his undergraduate degree, Gabe attended Mercer University where he played on the men’s soccer team and met his wife, Hannah. When he is not working, Gabe enjoys exercising, playing sports, and following the English Premier League.

“I love the ‘AHA’ moments—those times when you unlock a solution to a difficult problem that allows your client to achieve its goal in a legal and ethical way.”
