Business Development Platform for Middle Market Business Community Joins Forces with Powerhouse Litigation Firm

Nashville, Tenn.—(Oct. 19, 2016) Accelerent Nashville, an exclusive organization with a proprietary business development system, has announced its newest partner—Nashville, Tenn.-based Spicer Rudstrom PLLC. The law firm becomes the organization’s 49th partner.

“We are very excited to announce that Spicer Rudstrom has joined our organization as our exclusive law firm partner,” said Steve Minucci, Accelerent’s Regional President. “When I first met Marc Dedman, Spicer Rudstrom’s Managing Partner, I realized that they were not your typical regional law firm. It was clear that their firm believes in building strong, long-term relationships and serving the Nashville community. They will make a great addition to our existing platform of Accelerent partners that make up some of the most trusted company brands in Nashville. We look forward to helping them grow their presence in the Middle Tennessee market.”

Accelerent is a business development system designed for companies that serve the middle market business community. Each partner (client) is exclusive to its business category or industry, and Accelerent provides services to assist its partners with revenue growth and market exposure using the company’s proprietary business development platform. The company operates in Nashville; Washington, D.C.; Baltimore; Kansas City, Mo.; Phoenix; and Indianapolis, Ind., and its partner base includes many well-known brands across more than 60 industries. Accelerent helps its partners get access to decision makers, faster and warmer, which leads to more business and increased brand awareness.

“Spicer Rudstrom is very excited to have been invited to become a part of the Accelerent association of Middle Tennessee businesses,” said Marc O. Dedman, managing partner of Spicer Rudstrom. “Our firm was established in 1963 in Memphis and opened our other offices across the state in 1994 as the first Tennessee law firm to go statewide. We are thrilled to now be associated with other outstanding Accelerent partners who are working together to continue toward the common goal of serving the Middle Tennessee region. We are poised for continued growth and truly believe Accelerent will be a leader in facilitating relationships, allowing the Nashville metropolitan area to remain at the vanguard of successful business communities. We look forward to our partnership with Accelerent and the Accelerent family.”
