Initiate the Discussion: Christopher E. Thorsen


"I came to Baker Donelson as a lateral shareholder in June of 2016. Prior to moving over, I was a partner at an AmLaw 100 firm and had practiced there for 16 years. Making the move was obviously a very big deal for me, and based on my experience thus far, not only do I have no regrets, but I'm wondering why I didn't initiate the discussion sooner."
