CHATTANOOGA, Tenn., Sept. 13, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Headquartered in Chattanooga, but with offices in Nashville and Cleveland, Chambliss, Bahner & Stophel, P.C.,  has built a rich heritage of successful client service by anchoring its practice in the time-honored principles of legal scholarship, professionalism, innovation and vigorous advocacy. This year, the firm celebrates its 125th anniversary, a milestone that is indicative of its valued principles. Chambliss has produced a legacy of achievement by adapting to serve the diverse and challenging needs of its clients, which has resulted in a practice that is local, regional and national in scope.

"We believe the principal reason we have been successful is our commitment to serving our clients, without sacrificing integrity," said Dana Perry, Chambliss' President and Managing Shareholder.

Joe Davis, Vice President and General Counsel of McKee Foods Corporation, said, "The Chambliss firm has been strong throughout its history, but I believe that Chambliss may now be more impressive than ever. At various conferences of general counsel, I have often made the point that many large companies are overspending on legal fees because those companies send too much of their legal work to large firms in big cities.  I point out that a great middle-market firm such as Chambliss can produce an excellent legal product at a cost which is significantly lower than the fees charged by the firms in big cities.  We don't hesitate to send the Chambliss attorneys anywhere in the country."

Through the years, Chambliss attorneys have taken on important national cases, such as combating federal government regulations that could have been detrimental to Coca-Cola and helping a client negotiate the purchase of The New York Times newspaper. Its attorneys have also received numerous prestigious awards over the years. Most recently, the American Bar Association honored senior Chambliss attorney Max Bahner with the 2011 John H. Pickering Award of Achievement during the ABA's annual meeting in Toronto.

Chambliss serves as counsel for regional, national, and international businesses, financial institutions, local governments and non-profit organizations. The firm's major practice areas include corporate law, automotive law, health care, non-profit law, labor and employment, bankruptcy and creditors' rights, environmental law, financial services, real estate, taxation and all aspects of litigation.
