Bass, Berry & Sims has a welcoming culture that fosters success in our lateral attorneys. Much of our firm's leadership joined the firm through our lateral recruiting program, including our current Managing Partner, members of our Executive Committee and Practice Group Chairs. We strive to make our lateral recruiting process as smooth as possible. As a candidate moves through the interview process, attorneys from diverse backgrounds within the practice group in which the candidate is interested are actively involved so that the candidate receives insightful information regarding our practice and firm culture. After joining our firm, our lateral attorneys are fully and seamlessly integrated into both their practice group and other areas within the firm, such as involvement on various firm committees.

At Bass, Berry & Sims, fostering attorney development and integration within our firm is a priority. When it comes to seeking attorneys for open positions, we look for candidates with first-rate backgrounds both academically and professionally as well as exceptional interpersonal skills. We also aim to cultivate the growth of each individual who becomes part of our firm and endeavor to meet both the goals of each attorney and the needs of our clients.

Over the past few years, our attorney classes have grown dramatically from both the summer associate program and experienced attorney hiring, and our firm has grown to more than 200 attorneys in our Nashville, Knoxville, Memphis and Washington, D.C. offices. As we look forward to expanding our practice even further, we seek attorneys who can meet the challenge of developing our firm's community through a team-oriented approach.

The experienced attorneys who join our firm contribute greatly to our dynamic practice and to our ability to meet the diverse needs of our firm's clients. Depending on the needs of our practice areas, we are able to offer several options to attorneys joining from outside of our firm: lateral moves, reduced work schedules and staff or contract positions.

If you are a dedicated worker, valued team player, and an intelligent and personable individual, then Bass, Berry & Sims may be the place for you.


Bass, Berry & Sims is committed to developing our attorneys both professionally and personally. As a part of that commitment, our firm offers competitive compensation and benefits, including a wellness initiatives program. We reimburse for pre-approved relocation and bar-related expenses, and provide an annual stipend of up to $500 for pre-approved professional association membership fees.
