Copeland Cook Taylor & Bush, A.P.A. was formed in 1985, specializing primarily in oil and gas law, insurance and defense litigation. A merger in 1994 with an experienced tax law firm brought expertise in taxation, employee benefits, estate planning and probate. Today, CCT&B has grown to over forty attorneys and has expanded its practice areas to include corporate and general business, banking, environmental, bankruptcy, general litigation, securities, mergers and acquisitions, healthcare and labor and employment law. CCT&B clients include national corporations and insurance companies, oil and gas interests, healthcare providers, financial institutions, manufacturers and other major businesses and industries.
CCT&B is a Mississippi firm based in the Jackson area. Its attorneys grew up in Hernando, Cleveland, Okolona, Brandon, Pinola, Wiggins and other towns across the state of Mississippi. Those small town backgrounds influence CCT&B style of serving clients' needs with commitment to quality but with respect for all involved. Hometown ties also give CCT&B attorneys an advantage in their legal work throughout the state. General knowledge of a town or region and established relationships with local residents, businesses, lawyers and government personnel bring ease and familiarity to a project, often helping avoid timeconsuming delays and other obstacles.
CCT&B has grown primarily through the hiring of young associates, making thirty-five the average age of CCT&B's attorneys. Youthfulness combined with senior attorneys' cumulative years of practice offer clients an energetic approach to practicing law supported by a solid foundation of experience and knowledge.
The firm's litigation team has a long record of success in defending and prosecuting actions in state and federal trial courts and a broad range of experience in handling appeals to state and federal appellate courts. CCT&B's natural resources attorneys are widely recognized as being among the premier oil and gas lawyers in the state. CCT&B's business and tax attorneys have over one hundred years cumulative experience in business and taxation matters and recently represented the shareholder of one of Mississippi's largest corporations in the sale of the corporation's stock to an out-out-state concern.
A progressive, full service law firm, CCT&B continually seeks to increase its knowledge, experience and resources to provide its clients with the services they desire and deserve. Evidence of CCT&B's commitment to quality and efficiency is the firm's new office building that includes advanced telecommunications, the latest in legal research technology and conference facilities.
