New Firm Offers Project-Specific Work for Set Cost

Former Bass Berry & Sims partner Ross Booher and Ken Clarke, a former health care executive, have launched Latitude to provide legal services for interim projects at a fixed fee. In announcing the move, Booher said he saw an opportunity to help firms and corporations get project-specific legal work done without adding the costs of a permanent hire or overburdening the current staff, the Nashville Business Journal reports. "The idea with this company is to provide access to high-level talent individuals who are senior associate level counsel for project specific needs," Booher says. Latitude raised equity in late 2013 and opened its doors in Franklin this month.
