Bill Aiken was awarded Chattanooga Health Care Lawyer of the Year; Steve Jett Chattanooga Corporate Law Lawyer of the Year; and Dana Perry Chattanooga Trusts and Estates Lawyer of the Year. Mr. Aiken, Mr. Jett and Ms. Perry are all shareholders of the firm and together share more than 100 years of legal experience.

Mr. Jett, who has been on the Best Lawyers list since 2006, focuses on corporate and transactional work for manufacturing, health care, technology, construction and other business clients. Mr. Aiken, listed in Best Lawyers since 1993, practices in the areas of health care, corporate and securities law, automotive law, commercial contracts and business transactions, and mergers and acquisitions. Ms. Perry, managing shareholder of Chambliss and included in the ranks of Best Lawyers since 2007, works with clients in the areas of estate planning, elder law and special needs trust planning.

Since it was first published in 1983, Best Lawyers has become universally regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence. Because Best Lawyers is based on an exhaustive peer-review survey in which almost 50,000 leading attorneys cast nearly five million votes on the legal abilities of other lawyers in their practice areas, and because lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed, inclusion in Best Lawyers is considered a singular honor. Corporate Counsel magazine has called Best Lawyers “the most respected referral list of attorneys in practice.”
