The deep roots of Baker Donelson's Nashville history can be traced to Howard H. Baker beating Lewis Donelson to the punch. When the Heiskell Donelson firm started looking to establish a presence in the state capital, the Baker Worthington firm already had strong Middle Tennessee roots. For a time, the two firms coexisted as friendly rivals among Nashville firms, and as the city boomed, the firms grew and they eventually joined forces in 1994.
Today this office has grown to include more than 100 lawyers, assisting legal and public policy clients in the booming Nashville economy, across the country and around the world. We are recognized for our work in many legal service areas, with particular strengths in the health care, corporate and securities, litigation, and economic development sectors. We seek to help companies succeed and expand here as we have done, and we are active participants in the vibrant entrepreneurial community, providing a wide range of services to Nashville's emerging companies.
We are also recognized for our leadership in legal project management, continuously working to provide our clients with the latest in technology and value-added services that can help them manage their legal matters more efficiently and provide more budgeting certainty.
While we work to promote a true client-focused environment, our Nashville attorneys and staff are also dedicated to service in our community. In addition to the thousands of hours our Nashville attorneys provide in free legal services every year, our attorneys and staff also volunteer for dozens of local non-profit organizations. And we are proud to have been recognized in the Nashville Business Journal's "Best Places to Work 10 Year Hall of Fame."
