CHRISTOPHER R. MADDUX, CHAIR and technology, labor and employment, public finance, tax incentives and credit markets, commercial finance and gaming. “The attorneys bring new experiences and expertise to the firm,” Maddux says. “Our firm practices as a one-firm approach in that we practice not as singular offices but across offices to best

meet the legal and business needs of our clients.” Maddux says that Butler Snow’s central mission has always been to provide superior client service. That, paired with the firm’s innovative approach to the practice of law, including a unique culture of teamwork and a commitment to the communities in which the firm

operates, sets it apart from other firms. “We saw many of those same characteristics and philosophies in the Christopher R. attorneys at Kantrow Maddux Spaht Weaver & Blitzer, which naturally led us to be interested in them and ultimately led to the expansion of our presence in Baton Rouge,” Maddux says. He adds that the firm’s collaborative culture ensures that the best attorney is working on a particular matter, regardless of who may have brought a client to the firm or who is handling other matters for the client. Butler Snow has been growing rapidly over the last few years, with Baton Rouge being the latest expansion across the south. In 2019 alone, the firm hired more than 60 attorneys nationwide, bringing the total attorney count to more than 385. “While we have seen tremendous growth,” Maddux says, “that growth has not taken place just for the sake of adding to the firm’s head count. Instead, the growth has occurred in an effort to better serve clients by providing them additional expertise and knowledge.” Butler Snow’s Baton Rouge office is located at 445 North Blvd., Suite 300.
