Civil Litigation and Appeals

Page Content

Our experienced trial lawyers have tried cases in state and federal district courts throughout Tennessee and briefed and argued matters before state appellate courts and the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals. The lawyers in our litigation and appellate practice exhibit a great diversity of legal experience in complex multi-party business and commercial litigation – from toxic torts to products liability, construction disputes, and trucking accident litigation.
