Big Law is beefing up its ranks in certain parts of the Southeast, with a number of lateral additions over the last month at Baker Donelson, Bearman, Caldwell & Berkowitz, as well as Akerman, Fisher Phillips and Hunton Andrews Kurth.

Baker Donelson said Wednesday the firm hired four more lawyers in Charleston, South Carolina, including one of counsel from Womble Bond Dickinson and three associates from Parker Poe Adams & Bernstein.
