Alabama-based law firm Bradley Arant Boult Cummings (BABC) is a
legal stronghold in the Southeastern U.S., with seven offices in
four states. Its strategically located offices-in Alabama, North
Carolina, Tennessee, Mississippi and Washington, DC-enable the firm
to serve clients on a regional, national and international level.
Attorneys from the firm have represented clients like
pharmaceutical giant Pfizer, country music singer Clint Black, and
big banks Wachovia and Wells Fargo.
Merger of 2009
Bradley Arant Boult Cummings in its current incarnation was
created in 2009 after a merger between two already well-established
law firms in the Southeast. Bradley Arant Rose & White, founded
in Birmingham in 1871 as Hewitt & Walker, and Tennessee law
firm Boult Cummings Conners & Berry PLC, founded in 1910 in
Nashville, joined forces to become one of the National Law
Journal's 250 largest American firms with more than 430
lawyers combined in its firm-wide offices.
And the firm has continued to grow in recent years. Bradley
Arant Boult Cummings attracts top talent, including four former
Supreme Court clerks and attorneys who have been recognized in
The Best Lawyers in America and Chambers USA. The
firm itself has achieved recognitions like being named American
Lawyer Media's "Go-To Law Firm" for media and technology, and
placed in the top twenty of the BTI Client Relationship
100 rankings conducted by Fortune 1000 in-house counsel.
Serving the Southeast
BABC was named one of the most admired companies by the
Birmingham Business Journal in 2012, and not without good
reason. The firm has generously donated its time and resources to
numerous causes and community service organizations in the
Southeast, such as tornado relief, the Birmingham Firehouse
Shelter, March of Dimes, United Way of Central Alabama, Habitat for
Humanity, Mississippi Children's Museum, Birmingham Children's
Hospital, and the Legal Aid Society of Middle Tennessee.
The firm is also committed to pro bono work and diversity,
sponsoring several diversity scholarships both within and outside
its walls to high school, college, and law school students, and
instituting an official policy motivating its attorneys to commit
to at least 60 hours of pro bono work a year. It is the only law
firm based in Alabama to be part of the American Bar Association's
Law Firm Pro Bono project.
Dedication to Death Row
Bradley Arant Boult Cummings was unanimously selected to receive
an Exceptional Service Award from the American Bar Association for
its involvement in the ABA's Death Penalty Representation Project
for over 20 years. Since 1988, the firm has represented 22 death
row inmates, 19 of which were from Alabama, and spent over 1000
hours on cases for convicted murderers in later stages of their
sentences with no right to appointed legal representation and
