Nashville, Tennessee (PRWEB) June 12, 2014
Morgan & Morgan is proud to announce that it will open its newest office at 810 Broadway in Nashville across the street from the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Tennessee. The managing partner of the firm’s Nashville office, attorney Kathryn Barnett, expressed optimism for what’s to come, saying it will be hard to ignore Morgan & Morgan’s presence in the Music City.
“I am really looking forward to Morgan & Morgan becoming a household name for representing the people of Middle Tennessee,” Barnett said. “We have the unparalleled muscle-power of more than 250 attorneys, 300 paralegals and a support staff in excess of 1,400 people.”
The firm’s newest office location will be in a building that was constructed in 1904 for the Southern Methodist Publish House. The classical revival structure was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1984.
“Practicing law across the street from the courthouse in a historic hundred-year-old building is exciting,” Barnett reflected. “Morgan & Morgan is deeply committed to this community, and we are thrilled to be involved in restoring a piece of Nashville’s history.”
Renovation of the 6,000 plus square-foot space will include re-exposing the original 18-foot-high vaulted ceilings and ornamental columns. While the months-long renovation is underway, Morgan & Morgan’s newest location opened for business Monday, June 9 in temporary space on the fifth floor of 810 Broadway.
“It is fantastic to have the courthouse literally steps away from our front door,” Barnett said. “Our location exemplifies Morgan & Morgan’s commitment to taking a case all the way to trial if a defendant will not accept responsibility for all the harm it caused. You can’t hold wrongdoers fully accountable unless you are absolutely ready, willing and eager to try the case.”
Barnett is a prominent trial lawyer in Nashville, having won a $26 million jury verdict* in a wrongful death case in 2013, an $8 million arbitration award** in a commercial dispute in 2010, and serving as lead trial counsel in federal class action trials for combined judgments of over $120 million*** in 2004.
