Following is an excerpt:

Epstein Becker Green has hired a trio of former Butler Snow LLP attorneys, including the firm's former intellectual property practice head as health care and life sciences members in its Memphis, Tennessee, and Dallas offices.

Members Hemant Gupta and Adelee Traylor joined Epstein Becker's Memphis and Dallas offices in the middle of May, while member W. Jeff McGoff made the move to Memphis a month later, the firm said in its June 15 announcement.

Gupta and Traylor spent eight months as partners with Egan Nelson LLP, preceded by 16 and eight years, respectively, at Butler Snow. McGoff joined directly from Butler Snow, where he practiced for 16 years.

McGoff told Law360 Pulse on Tuesday that the trio was looking for a larger practice that provides both room for growth and opportunities to better serve their clients.

"We were seeking a national platform that could support the growth of our practices while also offering the resources and connections to take our client servicing capabilities to another level, and Epstein Becker Green is the best firm to provide that," McGoff said.

Gupta added that the close professional relationship between the three attorneys during their time at Butler Snow was another factor in their decision to jointly make the move to Epstein Becker.
"The three of us worked closely together at our previous firm for many years," he told Law360 Pulse.

"Our strong working relationship matches the collaborative spirit of EBG, and we are excited to integrate with our new colleagues. We already feel the synergies playing out to the benefit of our clients." …

The new hires are the latest additions in what's been a period of significant growth for Epstein Becker in the South. The firm has especially focused on expanding its Nashville, Tennessee, office, including through the additions of health care attorneys Ryan Cochran and John Tishler from Waller Lansden Dortch & Davis LLP.

"All three of these attorneys are focused legal practitioners with a reputation for performing at the highest level," Nashville managing member Chris Dunn said in a statement. "Hemant and Jeff, who will be joining us in the Memphis office, are also important figures in the Tennessee legal community who place great emphasis on supporting the state both professionally and personally."
