Bass, Berry & Sims Named 2012 Best Corporate Law Firm in Nashville

May 10, 2012

New York, (May 10, 2012) - Bass, Berry & Sims PLC has been named the best corporate law firm in Nashville for the 11th consecutive year by Corporate Board Member magazine and FTI Consulting Inc. The annual America's Best Corporate Law Firms study identifies the top corporate law firm in 25 major U.S. metropolitan areas, as well as the top 25 corporate law firms nationally, according to a survey of corporate directors and general counsel.

"This year we welcome back some familiar names and congratulate all the organizations selected as a top corporate law firm by directors and their general counsel peers," said TK Kerstetter, president of Corporate Board Member. "These firms have established themselves as industry leaders, many of them year after year, by their exceptional contribution to the corporate community."

The survey was mailed in January 2012 and also asked directors and general counsel of U.S. publicly traded companies to weigh in on current governance matters. A broader analysis of these results will be featured in a special supplement sponsored by FTI Consulting, which mails along with the Q3 2012 issue of Corporate Board Member.

A complete listing of the national, general counsel, and metropolitan rankings appears in the Q2 2012 issue of the magazine.
