Gibson was born and raised in Memphis, and received both her undergraduate and law degrees from the University of Memphis. Her practice focuses on municipal law, employment law, healthcare liability, and commercial and business litigation. She is the first female African-American member at the firm, which she joined in 2009.
According to the Memphis Business Journal, one of Gibson’s nominators for the Best of the Bar said she was “a consummate professional, mentor, and friend. I have admired Tannera in court, laughed with her on the phone, learned from her as a professor, and benefitted from her wisdom as a mentor. It doesn’t get any better than T.”
Nathan Bicks, managing attorney of the firm, agrees. “Tannera is a wonderful advocate for our clients and an established leader in our profession. We are proud to see her take her rightful place in the long line of BPJ lawyers who serve the greater Memphis community. And we are grateful that the community has recognized the talents we see her display every day.”
