Wade Watson III has left the trusts and estates litigation firm he founded with Harmon Caldwell 21 years ago, deciding Caldwell & Watson had just grown too big—at 13 lawyers.

And so he started his own shop, The Watson Firm, with another Caldwell & Watson partner, Laura Kennedy Bonander, on May 1. It’s located at 2200 Century Center Parkway—the same office building where he first started practicing in 1982. Their longtime assistant, Tracey Paul, joined them.
