Baker, Donelson, Bearman, Caldwell & Berkowitz traces its roots back to the firm of Baker, Worthington, Crossley & Stansberry, founded in 1888 in Huntsville, Tennessee by James Baker. James Bakers son, Howard Baker, Sr., who served as a United States Representative from Tennessee, and his grandson, Howard Baker, Jr., who served as Majority Leader of the United States Senate and White House Chief of Staff, were also lawyers at the firm. Howard Baker, Jr. was the last lawyer at the original Huntsville office, which closed after his death in 2014. The current firm, headquartered in Memphis, is the result of a complex series of mergers of many different predecessor firms spread throughout the Southern United States.
