Following is an excerpt:

Epstein Becker Green has hired a pair of attorneys from Nashville firm Waller Lansden Dortch & Davis LLP as members in its health care and employment practices.

Ryan Cochran and Jeb Gerth joined Epstein Becker at the start of January following 17 years at Waller Lansden, according to the firm's Monday announcement.

"EBG prioritizes both health care and labor and employment equally through exceptional resources and talent," Gerth said in a statement. "As Ryan and I enter the next phase of our careers, we are excited to join a firm where we know each of our practices will receive the same standard of dedication and care under Epstein Becker Green's five-decade-long super boutique strategy."

The new hires are the latest additions from Waller Lansden, which recently announced a merger with Holland & Knight LLP. In November, its former chairman, John C. Tishler, joined Epstein Becker's health care and life sciences practice, and last January, a four-person health care construction team consisting of members Christopher S. Dunn, Jeremy A. Oliver and Keith W. Randall and associate Briant Shumard joined the firm.

"The firm's national platform allows us access to a strong network of skilled attorneys throughout the country while also providing us the ability to cultivate our existing client relationships and connections in Nashville," Cochran said in a statement. "We are excited to reunite with former colleagues who have shared that their decision to join EBG has been fantastic."
