The Life & Casualty Tower (also known as the L & C Tower) is a skyscraper in Nashville, Tennessee located at 401 Church Street. It stands 152.5 meters (409 ft) and has 30 floors. It was designed by Edwin Keeble, with structural engineering made by Ross Bryan Associates, and was finished in 1957. It was Nashville's first skyscraper and the tallest in Tennessee until 1965, when 100 North Main Street in Memphis surpassed it.

Exterior materials are limestone, granite, and bright green glass windows. Intersecting curves and angles at the building's base focus attention on the entrance, which angles out to the corner of Church Street and 4th Avenue.

In the building's early days, the L&C sign at its apex functioned as a weather beacon, changing color to indicate the weather forecast.
