Burr & Forman Featured in "The Firms That Grew Fastest Without Merging" by Law360
In an article published by Law360 on May 29, 2017, Lee Thuston is profiled and discusses the firm's growth over the past years without the need to merge with another firm. The article details that Burr & Forman expanded its roster to 310 attorneys last year, and collaboration among attorneys is a key theme in its strategy. Thuston emphasizes the way the firm runs itself, stating, the firm "doesn't have any debt, all partners get a look at the books, overhead is kept low, and one of the top expenses is the four to five percent of revenue that the firm spends on legal marketing." Thuston stresses, "I would never force some jerk lawyer onto partners in another city who didn't want [that person] at Burr & Forman. That's a recipe for disaster."
