J.K. Simms, who leads Thompson Burton’s Labor and Employment law team, was recognized by the Nashville Business Journal in its annual Best of the Bar survey. This list recognizes the Nashville area’s best lawyers. To assemble the list, the Nashville Business Journal asked the Nashville area’s business community to nominate those lawyers who should be recognized for their work. Those nominated are then separated by the size of their law firm or role as in-house counsel. Then those who are nominated select only 10 lawyers whom they believe should ultimately receive the “Best of the Bar” designation. Those who receive the most votes from their peers receive the “Best of the Bar” award. The award is a great honor because it is a culmination of recognition of excellence from the business and legal communities. Simms has also been recognized as a “Super Lawyer” in the exclusive Mid-South Super Lawyer list for two consecutive years.
Walt Burton added “we already knew JK was a fantastic lawyer. Now he is getting formally recognized for it.”
