Waller Lansden Dortch & Davis, LLP (also known as simply Waller) is a large U.S. law firm with offices in the Southern United States. U.S. News & World Report has ranked Waller as one of the top law firms in the country across multiple disciplines.[2] It is the oldest and largest law firm in Nashville.[3]

History[edit | edit source]

Waller traces its roots back to the firm of Pitts & McConnico, founded in 1905[4] in Nashville, Tennessee by John Pitts and K.T. McConnico[5]. McConnico was one of three attorneys who represented John T. Scopes in his appeal to the Tennessee Supreme Court of his famous conviction in the Scopes Monkey Trial for teaching evolution in a public school.

The current firm, headquartered in Nashville, is the result of growth and a series of mergers with firms throughout the Southern United States.[6] The firm maintains additional offices in Tennessee[7][8], Alabama[9] and Texas[10]

Practice areas[edit | edit source]

With a reputation as having one of the top healthcare law practices in the nation[11], the firm also has attorneys engaged in corporate, mergers & acquisitions, labor and employment, real estate, bankruptcy, intellectual property, and tax law.
