The firm is recognized by its clients, former clients, referring attorneys and law firms, and by Nashville businessman, as providing cost-effective legal representation, straightforward legal advice, as well as outstanding results. Most of the firm’s work comes from satisfied former clients and from referrals from other Tennessee attorneys, as well as from many out-of-state attorneys and law firms. The firm’s founding lawyers, Matthew Brothers and Ross Pepper, both of whom practiced at larger firms in Tennessee, do not operate volume practices, but strive to provide personal attention, timely communication with clients, attention to detail, and exceptional representation for all of their clients.


The firm’s approach to litigation is tailor fit for businesses and individuals needing cost effective solutions from a firm with extensive commercial and business litigation experience. Our Nashville business litigation lawyers understand and appreciate the monetary and non-monetary costs of litigation to your business. We fully recognize that your litigation matter can be significantly more expensive than it ever needs to be if we do not think strategically about your situation from the outset of our representation. Our commitment is to collaborate with you to understand fully your legal situation, the results you desire, and to employ the strategies, throughout our handling of your case, that will achieve a successful result for you in the least expensive way.


Our lawyers know the advantages of using the latest technology for trial presentations, trial preparation and document management. We use technology and document management software which enables us to spend our time, and our client’s funds, efficiently, to remain competitive, and to present our clients’ cases to judges and juries in the most effective and persuasive manner.

Sometimes, the only way to achieve a successful and fair result is to take a case to trial or to arbitration. As importantly, good settlements are achieved when the opposition recognizes that your lawyer is preparing your case for trial; has trial experience; has trial skills; and will try your case if a fair settlement is not achieved. We are trial lawyers with years of trial experience before judges and juries in federal and state courts and before arbitrators. Our Nashville business litigation attorneys have gained a reputation among our colleagues in the bar as skilled, savvy and hard-nosed trial lawyers who will try a case if a fair settlement is not reached.


There are few, if any, cases where an optimum result for a client can be achieved without very hard work by a lawyer and law firm. The lawyers at Pepper & Brothers, from law school forward, have gained the reputation as being hard working and passionate about success and winning. While we can’t change the facts of your case, we believe that the lawyer who works the hardest has the edge going into trial or settlement negotiations. That is a fundamental belief our Nashville business litigation lawyers bring to every case and to our representation of every client.
