Our firm is based in Tennessee with a national presence and offers big-firm services without the inflated price tag.
Our clients come to us with an expectation of sound legal advice, innovative ideas and solid solutions. They stay with us because we deliver. We have clients who have been with us more than 50 years, and we are committed to building enduring relationships with new clients as well.
We have extensive, practical experience in litigation, and have represented many national and international clients. Most cases never make it to trial, and many lawyers rarely see the inside of a courtroom. Our active and diverse caseload breeds lawyers who fearlessly push forward with litigation. And when necessary they have the vision to negotiate favorable settlements when doing so better serves a client.
We have a national Franchise Law practice and represent franchisees in many major United States chains. We represent franchise companies, as well as those looking to set up a franchise. We also have extensive experience representing those in the entertainment industry, from artist to publishers. We represent banks and companies in lending transactions and opinion letters. Unlike most countries, the United States generally has worldwide taxation and reporting requirements for tax residents here, including different requirements by state and local revenue agencies. In order to help clients navigate taxation, we have extensive experience with international corporate and tax planning for foreign companies and individuals, including structuring, local counsel, and opinion work, as well as with compliance with the complex legal and tax provisions necessary for companies and individuals to operate here. We also have wide-ranging experience helping clients resolve and settle improper or missed foreign account filings and we help plan for international and domestic estates.
Over the years, Lewis Thomason has grown to include numerous practice areas and we are constantly expanding our scope of practice. We continue to increase our proficiency in a variety of practice areas and are particularly focused on getting in front of legal trends in today’s digital age.
