Tennessee-based Bass, Berry & Sims has reshuffled several leadership positions as the firm looks to stay competitive amid an increasingly appealing Nashville legal market.

The 280-attorney firm—which has Tennessee offices in Nashville, Memphis and Knoxville as well as an office in Washington, D.C.— announced this week it had elected Nashville partner Lillian Blackshear and Memphis partner Richard Mattern to its executive committee. It also named Memphis partner Al Bright to lead its African American affinity group, succeeding Blackshear, and named T. Gaillard (Gil) Uhlhorn V its new Memphis managing partner.
