Corporate Plaintiff's Litigation

Bass, Berry & Sims has a strong track record of success in high-stakes, plaintiff-side business disputes across the country. We have recovered hundreds of millions of dollars for clients, including a recent nine-figure judgment. We performed most of this work on a contingency basis, allowing us to share in the risk and reduce the cost of litigation for our clients.

Companies in healthcare, manufacturing and other industries turn to our attorneys to pursue damages in all manner of commercial litigation matters including breach of contract, business torts, and other high-stakes business disputes. In many instances, the satisfactory resolution of these disputes can be critical to the company’s business objectives.

Our extensive history of defending our clients in business cases enables us to provide a 360-degree perspective when representing plaintiffs that is rare in the legal industry. We understand the unique goals and priorities of each side. We can anticipate the moves of opponents because we have been in their position. We know the players, and we have credibility.

Leveraging the firm’s Client Value & Strategic Pricing Department, we have been successful in developing creative fee arrangements for the majority of these cases. At the onset, we develop a scope of work, establish goals and milestones, and propose an alternative or contingency fee arrangement that maximizes value and addresses client priorities.

In the past year, attorneys in this practice have received individual recognition from Chambers USA, Super Lawyers and The Best Lawyers in America©. Leading law firm and attorney guide Benchmark Litigation named Bass, Berry & Sims the “Tennessee Law Firm of the Year” for its litigation services during five of the past eight years (2022, 2019, 2018, 2017, 2015).
