Law Offices Merge, Expand Statewide Footprint
Lewis Thomason law firm president Lisa Cole (left) and Mike Keeney are the managing partners of the firm, which was formed in January by the merger of Lewis, King, Krieg & Waldrop and Thomason, Hendrix, Harvey, Johnson & Mitchell.
The new year brought a new identity for two of the state’s renowned law firms, thanks to a merger of their legal offices that stretch from the banks of the Mississippi River to the mountains of East Tennessee.
Beginning in January, Lewis, King, Krieg & Waldrop in Knoxville merged operations with Memphis-based Thomason, Hendrix, Harvey, Johnson & Mitchell to establish one of the largest Tennessee-based firms in the Volunteer State.
Now known as Lewis Thomason, the firm includes offices in Memphis, Nashville and Knoxville and employs 90 attorneys. More than a half-dozen lawyers have joined the firm in the last year, and its total number is expected to surpass 100 in the next 12 months.
