Bass, Berry & Sims Reports No Interruption in Client Service

May 5, 2010

Bass, Berry & Sims is pleased to report that our law firm is continuing to serve all our clients during the flood emergency in Nashville.

As you are aware, Nashville and the surrounding Middle Tennessee area experienced a devastating and historic flood over the weekend, affecting neighborhoods and businesses throughout the area. Parts of downtown Nashville that are affected include the Pinnacle at Symphony Place, the building that houses our Nashville offices.  The underground parking garage and certain operating systems were flooded and, as a result, the Pinnacle at Symphony Place has been temporarily closed.

We continue to serve all clients, despite this inconvenience, by utilizing our comprehensive technology back-up system, which is fully in place to respond to all ongoing legal needs. All Bass, Berry & Sims systems are operational and you can contact our firm and our attorneys as you have always done in the past.
