Bass, Berry & Sims Continues Pro Bono Partnership with The Academy to Advise Entrepreneurs

As part of our commitment to remedy economic inequalities that pervade historically low resourced communities, attorneys in our Nashville office lead a project with The Academy, a course developed by Corner to Corner to support individuals as they plan, start and grow a business. Our attorneys present classes on business formation and provide individual entrepreneurs with one-on one legal counsel, advising the new business owners on a variety of issues including business formation, funding, employment and taxation. This work has a real impact on economic disparity: according to statistics available from the Small Business Administration, the economic impact of The Academy is estimated at $6 million dollars annually.
