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.

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."
