McGlinchey News Release
McGlinchey Stafford Moves Office into Nashville’s ‘Batman Building’Read Time: 3 mins
McGlinchey is pleased to announce that it has moved its Nashville office in the city’s downtown, positioning the firm to better serve existing and potential clients and attract new attorneys to join its thriving workplace culture.
McGlinchey moved into a new 5,000-square-foot space in the office tower at 333 Commerce Street on Feb. 20. Officially the home of the Tennessee headquarters for AT&T, the 33-story skyscraper’s distinctive design and dark colors earned it the nickname “Batman Building,” due to its resemblance to the iconic silhouette of the DC Comics superhero. At 617 feet, it’s the tallest building in Tennessee.
The lively, energetic atmosphere surrounding the “Batman Building,” complimented by its easy access to courthouses, restaurants, coffee shops, and musical venues, motivated McGlinchey to make this move.
“As McGlinchey grows our Nashville presence and doubles our square footage, we’re excited to be centrally located in the heart of downtown,” said Shaun Ramey, Managing Member of the firm’s Nashville office and Co-Chair of its Financial Services Litigation practice group. “This location offers the best of both worlds, with the city’s courts and its vibrant music, culture, and food scene within walking distance. The location north of Broadway affords easy driving access for our employees, clients, and guests.” Shaun is also a member of McGlinchey’s 10-attorney Policy Committee, the firm’s executive leadership team.
Building on its strong presence in the Southeastern states, the full-service law firm opened its first office in Nashville in 2018 with a focus on commercial and financial services litigation, class actions, and commercial real estate transactions. This move enhances the firm’s ability to serve clients with corporate formation, music transactions, intellectual property and trademark registration, and more. With the hire of entertainment attorney Hillel Frankel in January, the firm also maintains an office on Music Row to serve the record labels, publishing companies, producers, and artists that comprise the heart of Nashville’s music and film industries. The Nashville-based attorneys work closely with attorneys throughout the firm’s 17 offices nationwide to provide clients with a full range of comprehensive legal counsel while delivering exceptional service.
“Especially in recent years, McGlinchey has prioritized our people and their well-being,” said Michael Ferachi, McGlinchey’s Managing Member. “Offering flexible schedules and a modern, bright office atmosphere in a desirable location enables us to attract top-tier professionals who want to practice law and make a difference while also enjoying their colleagues and workplaces.”
McGlinchey’s latest move is part of the firm’s continued, significant growth nationwide, both in footprint and service areas. It is in line with the firm’s ongoing strategy to attract like-minded attorneys who want large firm resources with a friendly, small firm atmosphere. As highlighted in a recent podcast episode featuring Shaun Ramey, promotions from within are encouraged, and lateral attorneys have many opportunities to assume responsibility and advance through the firm ranks. The firm is proud to offer its people flexibility through hybrid working arrangements while welcoming and enjoying having its people in the office.
The firm has focused on building a thriving, diverse workplace culture, and its efforts have been recognized in many ways. McGlinchey was recognized among the 30 “Best Law Firms for Women” by Firsthand’s 2023 Vault Survey, where it was ranked among some of the largest law firms nationwide. The firm was named a 2022 Top Performer and Compass Award recipient by the Leadership Council on Legal Diversity (LCLD), and its New Orleans office was recognized among the “Best Places to Work” in the city for 2021 and 2022.
McGlinchey is also enrolled in the Midsize Mansfield certification, a rigorous program which aims to afford underrepresented attorneys better access to jobs, career advancement, and leadership in law firms. McGlinchey is proud that half of its office leadership roles and 40 percent of its executive policy committee roles are held by diverse attorneys.
