About Us.

At Bass, Berry & Sims, delivering exceptional work is a critical part of what makes us successful. We stand apart because we respect the contributions that our people make to the firm. We create an inclusive environment where everyone can do complex work and give their all while being themselves, irrespective of role or background. Leaving a legacy for future generations matters to us, so we always go above and beyond to exceed expectations.


Our Core Attributes:

I. Collaborative. We are open, accessible and help each other thrive by working together. We collaborate, work hard and empower our people to shape a career that works for them. We are compassionate and do the right thing for our team, our clients and our communities.

II. Agile. We solve complex challenges in an agile and innovative way. Our clients have ever-changing needs, so we have to be entrepreneurial, adaptive and decisive while solving their legal issues.

III. Tenacious. We are curious and driven to acquire knowledge and develop as professionals. Our tenacity enables us to solve problems, ask questions and challenge each other. We are open and direct.

Our Practice.

Our Labor & Employment Practice Group counsels employers in labor and employment matters in three broad categories: day-to-day employment counseling, training and auditing; employment litigation; and traditional labor law. Our clients include union and non-union companies, as well as public and private employers ranging from Fortune 500 companies to small, locally-owned businesses across a wide variety of industries. Our attorneys work closely with our corporate attorneys on issues that overlap both areas, such as severance pay, downsizing, collective bargaining, COBRA, family leave laws, and age and disability discrimination. We also provide our clients valuable information on best practices, developments and trends in the area of executive compensation. A significant part of our practice is litigation, in federal and state agencies and courts, of labor and employment issues including unlawful discrimination and retaliation claims, wage and hour compliance, breach of employments contracts including non-compete agreements, and unfair labor practice charges.


Join Us.

We are seeking a Labor & Employment Associate with 3-5 years of management-side employment law experience to join our team in either our Nashville or Knoxville office. Candidate must have interest in working directly with clients, taking responsibility for case management, preparation and resolution, including trial, mediation and settlement. Traditional labor experience is a plus but is not required. The successful candidate is a self-starter with a strong work ethic who prefers a team approach to the practice of law and considers providing excellent service and results to clients their primary goal. Candidates must have outstanding analytical, written, verbal, and interpersonal skills, as well as excellent academic credentials. For consideration, please submit resume and transcript here.
