He resigned his commission as lieutenant to enter law school, but continued to serve many years as captain in the Naval Reserve.


Before helping to found the International Practice Group at Baker Donelson in 1989, George Montgomery traveled widely throughout the Middle East for more than a decade, first as legislative assistant and then chief counsel to U.S. Sen. Howard H. Baker Jr., and then as ambassador to Oman.

Later activities

Montgomery continued to visit the Middle East several times a year, both to maintain longstanding relationships with political and business leaders there and to build new ones. Cran's depth of experience in the Middle East recently helped him win a major petrochemical contract in Qatar for a U.S. petroleum company. He has worked in virtually every country on the Arabian peninsula, using his knowledge of the region's governments to facilitate business development and to advise companies on strategic planning and risk assessment. He periodically represents Middle Eastern governments in the U.S. and recently began representing Middle Eastern financial institutions seeking to invest in U.S. businesses and real estate. As a commissioned ensign in the U.S. Navy, Cran served as an advisor to the navy of the Republic of Vietnam.

Deep political connections

He was a member of the Le Cercle.
