June 24, 2016

Bass, Berry & Sims was recommended as a United States firm for "M&A – Middle-Market (sub-$500M)" by The Legal 500 United States 2016 guide. The 10th annual edition of The Legal 500 United States compiled research from law firms, peers and clients nationwide to recommend the top law firms in various categories. According to the guide:

Bass, Berry & Sims PLC has particularly strong government contractor and healthcare M&A practices. The team assisted Engility Holdings with its acquisition of TASC, advised Gen Cap America on its acquisition of Aero Systems Engineering, and acted for Emergent BioSolutions in the government contract aspects of its acquisition of assets relating to a contract with the Defense Threat Reduction Agency. In the healthcare space, it advised Little Hills Healthcare on its sale to CenterPointe Behavioral Health System, and acted for Healthways in its disposition of Navvis Healthcare. Todd Overman in Washington DC is chair of the firm's government contracts practice and has more than a decade of experience advising companies on doing business with the federal government. Nashville-based Riney Green has 25 years-plus experience in guiding middle-market companies and private equity sponsors through M&A, dispositions and other strategic growth initiatives, and provides M&A and corporate governance counsel to a publicly traded long-term care company. Allen Overby, also in Nashville, focuses mainly on public company M&A transactions in the $50m-$1bn range, with an emphasis on cross-border M&A and strategic transactions.
