Summary: Butler Snow has added 13 new attorneys to its office in Nashville, which continues to expand since its inception in 2011. 

Butler Snow announced that it has added 13 attorneys from Walker Tipps & Malone, according to a release from the firm and a report from the Nashville Business Journal.

The firm moved into Nashville in 2011 and not long after that brought in three-dozen attorneys from Miller & Martin.

There are 16 offices for the firm across the country, with another one in London, for a total of 300 attorneys.

“We have grown, but that’s not the end game for us,” Clark said. “The goal is to certainly have significant size and bench strength to handle any matter. … But the most important thing is to get really good lawyers. It’s not how many you got. It’s how good they are.”

Clark said that the attorneys joining the firm from Walker Tipps & Malone come with commercial litigation experience.

“As the economy begins to steadily increase, and it sure is in Nashville, it’s inevitable there are going to be business disputes that sometimes end in litigation,” Clark said. “This is a group of great lawyers who have been doing this for a long time. When the opportunity came along to get together for them to join the firm, we jumped at the opportunity.”

Three lawyers joining the firm are members of the American College of Trial Lawyers. Those three lawyers are Frank W. Hunger, Gayle I. Malone Jr. and Robert J. Walker.

“The more we talked to them we decided it was going to be a great opportunity to have a broader platform … to give us a broader base to deal with the complicated litigation we like,” Walker said. “That, plus the culture [of Butler Snow], swung the deal for us.”

Walker said the following about the firm’s culture:

“It creates the kind of teamwork we’re used to doing with our small firm,” Walker added. “In spite of the fact that as large as they are, it was the relationships each of the professionals have with each other. You have to have some bureaucracy [in a large firm], but it seemed that doesn’t dominate the relationships.”

In the firm’s release, Clark said, “These attorneys bring exceptional commercial litigation experience to the firm. One of the most dynamic aspects of this relationship is that Butler Snow has long been a leader in the alternative fee arena while this group has been a leader in handling business disputes through contingency and alternative fee arrangements. This will certainly well position our commercial litigation team and greatly benefit clients.”
