From the Birmingham Business Journal:
“As most in the business world know, Birmingham has a huge concentration of legal talent.
The area is home to some of the most well-respected law firms in the region – and the nation. And that’s a huge asset for both Birmingham and its businesses.
The result is a wealth of legal talent that has drawn several top national firms to town and created a strong mix of local firms, national players and boutique firms covering a range of specialties.
And those firms play a key role in the local economy, whether it is representing a major employer or playing a behind-the-scenes role in the latest big downtown project or economic development deal.
That’s why, each year, the Birmingham Business Journal publishes our annual Who’s Who in Law special section – a feature that highlights the top leaders in the Magic City’s legal world.
This year, our Who’s Who in Law list includes the managing partner, shareholder or top executive of the law firms ranking on our Largest Law Firms and Largest Litigation Firms Lists, as well as law school leaders and other names to know.”
