Adams and Reese Partner Jeffrey Smith is featured in the May/June 2014 Memphis Magazine as he was named among “The Power Players” in Labor and Employment for the fifth consecutive year.
The MBQ’s 2014 Power Players issue is an annual review of “Who’s Who” in the world of Memphis business and was the result of MBQ staff meetings and consultation with industry experts and several discussions with the key players themselves in the selected fields. The MBQ is published four times a year by Contemporary Media and has 25,000 readers per issue.
At Adams and Reese, Smith’s representative clients include construction, agriculture, heavy and industrial equipment distribution companies, franchisees and dealerships, primarily for legal counsel on corporate, contractual and employment matters, as well as franchise/dealership issues and disputes. He also represents health care companies, and general contractors and sub-contractors in construction disputes.
Smith was a member of the 2011-2012 class of Leadership Memphis Executive Program, which informs, involves and inspires business leaders toward more effective community leadership within the Memphis area.
In addition to participating in Leadership Memphis, Smith was selected as a board member of the Tennessee Justice Center, a nonprofit public advocacy organization that helps low-income families in need through shaping public policy and securing health care access, assistance and food aid. In 2011, Smith was named “Pro Bono Attorney of the Year” by the Tennessee Justice Center.
