John Golwen Profiled in Memphis Business Journal as New Memphis Managing Partner

Memphis Business Journal

Media Mentions

April 5, 2017

John Golwen, the new managing partner of the firm's Memphis office, was profiled in a Memphis Business Journal article discussing his new position, the evolution of the Memphis office and the firm's role in the Memphis business community. Collaboration between the firm's four offices – Washington, D.C., Nashville, Knoxville and Memphis – is typical, John said, and something he hopes to build on as he manages the Memphis office. "Over the past five to six years, we've moved from being a Memphis group to being a truly integrated part of the entire firm," said John. "Regardless of where you are officed, you're typically working within your practice group, and members of that practice group are interspersed at every single office."

The full article, "Firm's New Local Managing Partner Plans to Build on Collaboration," was published by the Memphis Business Journal on April 4, 2017, and is available online.
