Eighty-Eight Bradley Arant Boult Cummings Attorneys Named 2012 Super Lawyers or Rising Stars in Alabama and Washington, D.C.

Press Release

Bradley Arant Boult Cummings LLP is pleased to announce that 65 of the firm’s attorneys have been named to the 2012 Alabama or Washington, D.C., Area Super Lawyers lists. In addition, 23 of the firm’s attorneys were named 2012 Alabama Rising Stars.

Super Lawyers are recognized as leading attorneys in their state or region, while Rising Stars, who are either under 40 years old or in practice for 10 years or less, are honored as a state or region’s up-and-coming attorneys.

In any state or region, no more than five percent of all attorneys can be named as Super Lawyers and only up to 2.5 percent of attorneys can be listed as Rising Stars each year. Both Super Lawyers and Rising Stars are chosen through nominations and peer evaluations, as well as independent research.

The Alabama Super Lawyers and Rising Stars lists will be published in Alabama Super Lawyers magazine and as a special section inside Business Alabama magazine. The Washington, D.C., Area Super Lawyers list will appear in DC Magazine and the Washington Post.

“Each year, we are humbled as a firm by the large number of our attorneys who continually achieve success in their areas of practice, landing them on the Super Lawyers or Rising Stars lists,” said Firm Chairman Beau Grenier. “We congratulate our talented attorneys who are highly regarded for the work they deliver for our clients and the examples they set for their colleagues as well as lateral recruits.”
