Four of the firm’s Chattanooga attorneys were also named Chattanooga “Lawyers of the Year”: Beckman, Mergers and Acquisitions Law, and Securitization and Structured Finance Law; Hartley, Tax Law; Rich, Real Estate Law; and

Robinson, Employee Benefits Law.

Best Lawyers lists are based on peer-review surveys in which over 50,000 attorneys cast more than 5.5 million votes on the legal abilities of other lawyers in their practice areas. The publication covers almost 70 countries and 137 practice areas.
