Bass Berry & Sims PLC, with law offices in Memphis, Nashville and Knoxville, has let go 32 employees. That number includes six from the firm’s Downtown Memphis office – two lawyers and four staffers.

Across the state, the firm’s 32 job cuts equate to 10 attorneys and 22 staffers. Keith Simmons, managing partner for the firm, described the decision as a move toward greater efficiency.

Bass Berry & Sims also is delaying the date for 10 attorneys who had been due to start work Sept. 1.

“We’ve asked them to wait until January,” Simmons said. “That affects two (attorneys) in Memphis. We have also already determined we’re not going to do associate raises this September. We’ll just wait and see how the marketplace reacts to all that’s going on right now.”
