NASHVILLE (AP) — Former U.S. Rep. John Tanner of Union City has joined a newly-expanded Nashville law firm.
Tanner, a Democrat who retired from Congress in 2011 after 22 years in office, will specialize in government relations for Butler, Snow, O’Mara, Stevens & Cannada. Former Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour has similar responsibilities for the firm in Jackson, Miss., where it is based.
Butler Snow announced today that 37 attorneys are joining the firm in Nashville, bringing its total number of attorneys in Tennessee to almost 100. It has more than 220 attorneys practicing in 12 offices nationwide.
The company said, with the expansion in Nashville, it becomes one of the largest law firms in Tennessee and among the largest in the country. Published in The Messenger 6.7.12
