Wright Lindsey Jennings LLP of Little Rock has named Quinten Whiteside as its chief operating officer.
Whiteside, who joined the law firm in 2015 and was elected a partner in 2021, succeeds Adrienne Baker in the role. Baker, who had held the position since 2018, recently relocated to the firm's northwest Arkansas office.
Whiteside will continue his litigation-based practice focused on administrative and regulatory law, trucking and transportation defense, government relations and insurance defense, the firm said in a news release.
“Quinten has a long history of leadership at WLJ and for our state,” Steve Lancaster, managing partner, said in the release. “His professionalism and diligence, combined with his approachability and sense of humor, make him an asset to our clients and our firm’s continued growth.”
Whiteside is a graduate of the American Board of Trial Advocates National Trial College and a member of the Defense Research Institute. Before attending the University of Arkansas School of Law, he worked for five years in Washington, D.C. for former U.S. Sen. Mark Pryor.
