Bradley Arant Boult Cummings LLP is pleased to announce that partner Matthew H. Lembke has been elected to the American Law Institute (ALI), the leading independent organization in the United States producing scholarly work to clarify, modernize and otherwise improve the law. ALI members are a select group of lawyers, judges and law professors who draft, discuss, revise and publish Restatements of the Law, model statutes, and principles of law that are enormously influential in the courts, legislatures, and law schools.
“The firm congratulates Matt on this achievement and well-deserved recognition,” said Chairman Beau Grenier. “The ALI is a well-respected group whose work shapes the future of the practice of law in both the U.S. and internationally. Matt’s perspective and experience will be a valuable addition to the ALI.”
Lembke, one of four Bradley Arant Boult Cummings lawyers to have clerked for the Supreme Court of the United States, has more than 17 years of experience in handling appeals in both state and federal courts, including arguing cases in the Alabama Supreme Court and the D.C., Fifth, and Eleventh Circuits.
