Firm News, Accolade

Bradley Arant Boult Cummings LLP is pleased to announce that partner Bruce P. Ely has been named to the 2014 International Who’s Who Legal: Corporate Tax, recognizing Bruce as among the world’s leading corporate tax lawyers. This is the third consecutive year that Mr. Ely has been the only Alabama attorney listed in the prestigious guide.

“We congratulate Bruce on this well-deserved international distinction,” said Firm Chairman Beau Grenier. “Bruce continues to receive recognition for his tax practice locally and nationally as well.”

Attorneys selected for the guide are experienced leaders in the international legal marketplace for corporate tax. Nominees were selected based on intensive research and independent surveys of international clients and private practitioners conducted by the guide’s publisher, London-based Who’s Who Legal, which identifies leading lawyers from more than 100 countries in 32 areas of business law.

Mr. Ely practice focuses on three concentric areas: representing taxpayers before federal, Alabama and local administrative and judicial forums; advising companies on choosing the proper form of entity through which to conduct business in the Southeast and potential tax incentives; and advising companies and various trade and professional organizations regarding state and local tax legislative matters. He also devotes a substantial amount of time to teaching and writing on SALT-related topics.

Mr. Ely holds a J.D. from The University of Alabama School of Law, an LL.M. in Taxation from New York University School of Law, and a B.S. in Accounting (with honors) from The University of Alabama. He serves periodically as an adjunct professor at the Cumberland School of Law at Samford University in Birmingham.
