Chambers USA 2017 Ranks 45 Butler Snow Attorneys as Leaders

Butler Snow is proud to announce Chambers USA 2017 ranked 45 of the firm’s attorneys as leaders in their fields and ranked the firm in 13 categories.

Rankings for individual lawyers are based on their practice-area(s), and evaluation of their legal knowledge and experience, their ability, their effectiveness, and their client-service. A law firm ranking relates to a department of the firm and the qualities of the ranked attorneys within that department.

Factors and considerations are judged by interviews with those active in the market – mainly clients and other lawyers with whom they work; and by assessing recent work done.

“We are proud of all of our attorneys that have been recognized by Chambers USA,” said Don Clark, Jr., chairman of Butler Snow. “It is always an honor to be recognized in this prestigious directory.”

Chambers USA 2017 also ranked the firm in the following categories: Product Liability & Mass Torts (Nationwide), Labor & Employment (Mississippi, Tennessee), Litigation: General Commercial (Mississippi, Tennessee), Real Estate (Mississippi, Tennessee), Corporate/Commercial (Mississippi), Energy & Natural Resources (Mississippi), Environment (Mississippi), Banking & Finance (Tennessee), Corporate/M&A (Tennessee), and Healthcare (Tennessee).
