Practice/Organization Description

Bradley Arant Boult Cummings LLP is a regional law firm with a global perspective. The firm has more than 440 attorneys serving national and international companies, established regional companies, emerging businesses, and individuals. Clients rely on us for innovative legal services that reflect a deep understanding of their business realities.

We are one of the largest firms in the Southeast, with offices strategically located in Alabama, Mississippi, North Carolina, Tennessee and the District of Columbia. These offices provide an extensive geographic base from which to serve clients on a regional basis, as well as clients located elsewhere in the country and the world. We frequently serve as national coordinating counsel, regional counsel, and statewide counsel for clients in various industries. Our lawyers work for major construction companies in Europe and Asia, for multinational pharmaceutical companies in New York and California, for major insurance and financial clients in Texas, Indiana, and Alabama and for national tire manufacturers in Tennessee and Georgia.

Our clients work in a broad range of industries, including accounting, automotive, banking and finance, biotechnology, construction, economic development, education, emerging business, energy, equipment leasing, forest products, health care, insurance, manufacturing, materials and aggregate production, media and communications, mining, municipal, project and public finance, oil and gas, pharmaceuticals and medical devices, private equity, public utilities, real estate, retail, steel, technology, telecommunications, textiles, transportation, and venture capital. Each of these sectors presents unique challenges and opportunities, which demand specific legal and business experience. We meet those challenges with client and industry teams combining the talents of seasoned legal professionals from a variety of disciplines. These teams provide strategic solutions tailored specifically to our clients' industries and operations.

As a firm, we believe we have particular strengths and core competencies in the areas of construction, economic development, emerging and family owned businesses, financial institutions and services, health care, intellectual property, litigation, private equity, and real estate.

Whether we are helping our clients acquire real property, defend lawsuits, raise capital, comply with regulatory requirements, enter new markets, obtain and defend intellectual property rights, develop and distribute products and services, or merge or divest businesses, we treat our clients' problems as our own. When our clients are faced with disputes, we help them find the fastest and most effective solutions.

Our clients' opinions matter the most. That is why we are proud to be in the top 25 percent in the BTI Client Relationship 100 which ranks law firms for client service and value based on recommendations from nearly 300 in-house counsel from Fortune 1000 companies. Our attorneys are also ranked 19th in the BTI Client Service A-Team 2011, another recognition of the superior service and efficiency we consistently provide for our clients. Likewise, American Lawyer Media’s annual surveys of in-house counsel have listed Bradley Arant Boult Cummings as a “Go-To Law Firm” for leading financial services and technology companies. We believe that the depth of quality of our lawyers distinguishes us as a law firm: 157 (39%) of our lawyers are listed in The Best Lawyers in America; 63 (17%) of our lawyers are recognized in Chambers USA; 36 (9%) of our lawyers are members of the prestigious American Colleges in their respective practice areas; and 4 of our lawyers are former United States Supreme Court clerks. In each of these cases, the percentages and relative number of lawyers so recognized are among the highest in the nation.
