The firm has succeeded for more than 70 years because it has remained committed to its approach, its attorneys and employees, and its values.

Approach. GSRM is small enough to respond personally and efficiently to each client. At the same time, the firm is large enough to handle matters for Fortune 500 companies.

Team. The firm’s success is the result of the professionalism of its attorneys. Firm members have many years of experience and are responsive to their clients. They understand business matters and are knowledgeable of the legal issues faced by a number of industries.  GSRM’s senior attorneys work side-by-side with the firm’s younger attorneys, actively involving them in all client work.

Values. Professionalism, integrity, and flexibility are important values to the firm. GSRM lawyers respond promptly and thoroughly to their clients’ needs and provide pragmatic solutions to difficult issues.

History

Gullett Sanford Robinson & Martin was formed in 1986 with the merger of Martin & Cochran (established in 1942) and Gullett, Sanford & Robinson (established in 1957).  Westlake, Marsden & Montgomery merged with the firm in 2003.

GSRM’s former partners have also received appointments to governmental positions, such as General Counsel to the United States Environmental Protection Agency, Attorney General of the State of Tennessee, and General Counsel to the Vice President of the United States.

The firm’s tradition of service continues today as members of the firm:

  • Author treatises and portions of the Tennessee Code
