Sixty-Eight Bradley Arant Boult Cummings Attorneys Named 2013 Alabama Super Lawyers

Firm News, Accolade

Bradley Arant Boult Cummings LLP is pleased to announce that 68 of the firm’s attorneys have been named Alabama Super Lawyers and 26 were tapped as Alabama Rising Stars for 2013. The lists recognize leading attorneys in the state. They are listed in the May 2013 issue of Alabama Super Lawyers Magazine and in a special section of the May 2013 Business Alabama magazine.

Each year, only the top 5 percent of all attorneys in Alabama are named as Super Lawyers. They are selected through peer nominations and evaluations along with third-party research. The selection process for Rising Stars is the same with the exception of peer evaluations. Rising Stars must be 40 years old or younger or in practice for 10 years or fewer. No more than 2.5 percent of all Alabama lawyers are named to the Rising Stars list.

“We congratulate our attorneys who have been named Alabama’s Super Lawyers and Rising Stars for 2013,” said Firm Chairman Beau Grenier. “They demonstrate talent and leadership that make them ‘go-to’ lawyers in their respective practice areas.”
