The Knoxville-based law firm Wimberly Lawson Wright Daves & Jones, P.C. announces the opening of a Chattanooga office, effective May 1. The new Wimberly Lawson office is shared with the existing Chattanooga law firm Bob E. Lype & Associates, at 6181 Vance Road, Chattanooga. The two law firms will operate independent practices from the location, but they also plan to work jointly to serve mutual clients in Chattanooga and the surrounding counties in southeast Tennessee whenever possible.
Wimberly Lawson is a regional law firm with approximately 30 attorneys in offices in Knoxville, Nashville, Cookeville and Morristown. The firm provides comprehensive labor and employment law counsel, advice and representation to employers in Tennessee and throughout the United States. In addition, Wimberly Lawson has an active practice in matters involving commercial law, business litigation, immigration and insurance defense, with a commitment to and reputation for diligent, responsive and cost-effective client service.
Bob E. Lype has practiced law in Chattanooga for 23 years, including previous experience with large and mid-sized Chattanooga law firms. He is a frequent author and speaker on employment law matters, and like Wimberly Lawson, his practice involves extensive representation of employers in a wide variety of employment law matters, as well as business litigation and insurance defense. Mr. Lype also works with an associate attorney, Mi Wu Belvin, who has more than four years of litigation experience, and whose unique skills include being fluent in Mandarin Chinese.
Wimberly Lawson has been actively serving clients in southeast Tennessee even before opening a Chattanooga office, and it is pleased and excited for the opportunity to expand its client service in the region. Mr. Lype is likewise pleased to welcome Wimberly Lawson to Chattanooga, which will give his firm additional resources to offer expanded services as the two firms seek to work together when possible to serve mutual clients in the region.
