Nashville Lawyers Form New Litigation Firm

Former Nashville Bar Association (NBA) President Scott Sims of Walker Tipps & Malone and Sherrard & Roe litigation practice head Sam Funk are forming a new firm, the Nashville Post reports. Sims Funk PLC will open its doors at 3310 West End Ave. on Thursday. Funk said the new firm will begin with just the two litigators and "a lot of the same clients" they have represented. Funk has been with Sherrard since 1998. He was named head of the litigation practice in 2012. Sims served as the president of the NBA in 2008. He also is a past president of the NBA Young Lawyers Division and Middle Tennessee Governor for the TBA YLD. Both Funk and Sims were members of the TBA’s inaugural Leadership Law class.
