Bass, Berry & Sims attorney Scott Reid was featured in Law360 Pulse following the announcement that he recently joined the firm and will practice in the Nashville and Knoxville offices. Scott, who focuses his practice on private equity, debt financing transactions and debt restructurings, shared insight with the publication on the benefits that the firm’s culture, clients and roster of broadly experienced attorneys will have for his practice.

“The firm has really good people, and I am proud to have them as my colleagues,” Scott said of joining Bass, Berry & Sims and returning to his home state of Tennessee after practicing at the larger Kirkland & Ellis in its Houston, Texas office. “The firm’s diverse roster of clients relies on the firm’s counsel for cutting-edge issues similar to those I addressed during my time at Kirkland, and it is clear that my background and training will be helpful and relevant to the firm’s clients.”

He also noted that the firm’s “safety net” of high-quality attorneys to support his practice is similar to that of his former firm, despite a disparity in size. “BigLaw does not have a monopoly on top-drawer legal talent, and Bass, Berry & Sims is a great example of how a midsize firm can successfully recruit and retain leading legal talent and provide clients with sophisticated, one-stop-shop counsel for the full range of clients’ legal needs,” Scott said.
