Lembke, a partner in the firm’s Birmingham office, has been installed as Chair of the American Bar Association’s Council of Appellate Lawyers, the only national appellate bench-bar organization.

The Council’s mission is to foster a dialogue among federal and state appellate lawyers and judges that will improve appellate advocacy and strengthen ties among the numerous appellate bar organizations.

Lembke has 18 years of experience representing clients at the trial and appellate levels. In recent years, his work has focused on cases involving interstate water rights, environmental contamination and complex commercial and securities litigation. Lembke is one of four Bradley Arant Boult Cummings lawyers to have clerked for the U.S. Supreme Court.
