The firm of Kramer Rayson LLP was established in 1948 by the late Russell Reed Kramer. The firm engages in the general practice of law with the majority of its work consisting of representation of businesses in employment, tax and contractual matters, the representation of individuals in tax, estate, and trust matters, and the defense or prosecution of civil claims. The firm handles both litigation and transactional matters.
Kramer Rayson LLP has twenty-six lawyers who are graduates of law schools at the University of Tennessee, the University of Virginia, the University of Arkansas, the University of Memphis, Seattle University, Vanderbilt University, the College of William and Mary and Southern Methodist University.
The firm encourages its members to become involved in activities outside the practice of law. The attorneys have served on many local boards, including such institutions as the Knoxville Museum of Art and The University of Tennessee. In addition, firm members are actively involved in state and local bar associations and otherwise participate in numerous charitable and educational entities and activities.
