Adams and Reese attorney Gif Thornton was interviewed in the Nashville Business Journal, which asked area law firms to predict when a national Top 25 firm might set up an office in Nashville, and what might be the catalyst for such an entrance into the market.

Thornton said, “For the foreseeable future, expansion among the very largest U.S. firms will focus on international growth, in general, and Asia, in particular.”
