Butler Snow O’Mara Stevens & Cannada — which recently expanded its Nashville-area office by nearly 40 attorneys at the expense of Miller & Martin – has donated $100,000 to the Frist Center for the Visual Arts, assisting the museum in its global outreach efforts.
“We are committed to strengthening Nashville’s thriving and innovative business culture through our team of attorneys in Middle Tennessee,” Donald Clark Jr., chairman of Butler Snow, said in a release. “Fostering a rich culture of arts and community involvement is a hallmark of our firm. We are proud of what The Frist Center for the Visual Arts has become for Nashville, the state and the nation.”
Tenn. Gov. Bill Haslam, Nashville Mayor Karl Dean, former Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour and former U.S. Rep. John Tanner, among others, gathered Tuesday for an event called “Embracing the Arts. Impacting the Community” at the Frist Center.
Clark and Dan Elrod, a leading member of Butler Snow’s Nashville team, presented the check to Susan Edwards, executive director and CEO of the Frist Center.
“Butler Snow has a great heritage of embracing the arts and enriching the communities where we serve, and we are glad to be leading this charge in Nashville,” Elrod said.
Butler Snow now is home to almost 100 attorneys in Tennessee and more than 220 practicing in 12 offices nationwide.
