Butler Snow Attorney Eric E. Hudson has recently been elected a Fellow of the Tennessee Bar Foundation, an association of 801 attorneys across the state. Invitations to membership, which is a position of honor, were extended to 29 attorneys by the board of Trustees. The introduction of new Fellows took place at the annual Fellows’ Dinner in Nashville.
The Bar Foundation’s purpose is two-fold: to honor attorneys who have distinguished themselves in the profession and to administer a grant making program. That project, known by its acronym “IOLTA” (Interest On Lawyers’ Trust Accounts), has awarded grants in excess of $20,000,000 to law-related, public interest projects throughout Tennessee.
“I am honored to have been chosen as a Fellow of the Tennessee Bar Foundation,” said Hudson. “I look forward to aiding in their support of their public interest projects.”
Hudson focuses his practice on commercial litigation, drug and device litigation, product liability litigation, and business torts and unfair competition. He completed his undergraduate degree in biology at Vanderbilt University, his masters in biology from the University of South Florida and his Juris Doctor from the Vermont Law School.
Hudson is AV-Rated by Martindale-Hubbell and has been named in The Best Lawyers in America® for Commercial Litigation, Mid-South Super Lawyers® for Class Action/Mass Torts, and the Memphis Business Journal’s Top 40 Under 40. He is a member of the American and Tennessee Bar Association, as well as, a Fellow in the American and Memphis Bar Foundations.
