Our team of more than 80 litigators is ready to serve our clients' best interests and has a long track record of not only winning, but also understanding clients' business objectives.

We approach disputes by addressing not only the matter at hand, but also by analyzing litigation trends facing the client and suggesting creative solutions to minimize risk over the long term. Our focus is to serve each of our clients' best interests as efficiently and effectively as possible. We establish a course of action, propose alternative fee arrangements and evaluate early settlement possibilities or opportunities for an early dismissal to avoid expense and protracted litigation. That said, we are prepared to serve as resolution negotiator or staunch advocate; whichever is necessary. We utilize the latest advances in technology to improve communication, discovery and trial preparation, all leading to sound victories.

Our Litigation & Dispute Resolution Practice Group is built on great reputations in corporate and securities, government investigations, healthcare, financial services and commercial litigation. From that foundation, we are especially focused on significant and growing areas of litigation that affect our clients, and align with our unique strengths.

In the past year, our litigators received individual recognition by Chambers USA, Super Lawyers and Best Lawyers in America®. In addition, Benchmark Litigation named Bass, Berry & Sims the "Tennessee Law Firm of the Year" for Litigation in 2015 and 2012.
