More large law firms in the Southeast are assembling teams of artificial intelligence-focused lawyers to promote their expertise and coordinate together on client matters. The latest is Baker, Donelson, Bearman, Caldwell & Berkowitz, which announced this month the formation of a generative AI task force.

Andrew Droke, a shareholder in the firm’s Nashville office, said in an interview that the task force addresses clients’ concerns about the effect of the burgeoning use of generative AI. “As more clients begin to ask questions in the face of [awareness of AI], it made more sense for us to have a full team able to serve our clients on these issues,” Droke said.
