Federal Practice

We have been regularly engaged in Federal Court litigation in Tennessee, Virginia and other jurisdictions for many years and our litigation team has deep experience in this area.  Four of our partners have over 30 years of federal practice experience in both jury and non-jury settings and in both motion and trial practice.  Our other attorneys also have substantial individual and collective experience in federal court practice.
We regularly appear on behalf of and represent clients in litigation covering a variety of areas including:

  • Anti-trust;
  • Civil rights;
  • Intellectual property;
  • Environmental;
  • Health care;
  • Securities;
  • Tax;
  • Bankruptcy; and
  • Labor and Employment
  • ERISA
  • Utility
  • Class Action
  • Commercial Litigation

We also have substantial federal appellate practice experience, regularly preparing appellate briefs and arguing appeals in the Sixth and Fourth Circuit Courts of Appeal. Several of our attorneys are admitted to practice before the United States Supreme Court. We are regularly retained as local counsel in class action suits and currently are serving as local counsel in two pending multi-district class actions involving the milk industry.
