Burr & Forman Adds a Partner and Continues Rapid Growth in Nashville
Nashville, Tenn. - Burr & Forman LLP announces the addition of two attorneys to its Nashville office, continuing the firm's strategic plan for rapid expansion in Music City. Joining as a partner is Emily Taube. These additions bring Burr & Forman's Nashville growth since January to 15 attorneys, more than doubling the location's size to 25 lawyers. Burr & Forman now has a total of 47 Tennessee-licensed lawyers firmwide.
"This has been an exciting time of growth for our Nashville office. Emily will further add support to our ability to provide more direct service to clients with legal needs throughout Tennessee," said Thomas K. Potter, III, managing partner of Burr & Forman's Nashville office. "Emily's practices fill some gaps for us, continuing to grow the capabilities and deep industry experience we have added since the arrival of 13 other lawyers earlier this year."
Taube joins Burr & Forman as a partner in the firm's Creditors' Rights and Bankruptcy practice, representing businesses in complex commercial disputes. She serves on the American Bankruptcy Institute's Southern Regional Development Committee, and previously co-chaired the committee that drafted the organization's Report on Standards of Professional Conduct and Courtesy.
She earned her undergraduate degree from the University of Tennessee, and her law degree from the University of Memphis Cecil C. Humphreys School of Law.
