Accolade, Firm News

Bradley Arant Boult Cummings LLP is pleased to announce that Birmingham partner Brad Robertson and Huntsville associate Harold D. Mooty, III were selected to participate in Leadership Alabama’s two-day 2016 Alabama Leadership Initiative, which took place in April.

“We are proud of Brad and Hal for representing Bradley among such a highly esteemed and bright group of young professionals,” said Bradley Chairman of the Board and Managing Partner Beau Grenier. “The Leadership Initiative’s valuable program stimulates powerful dialogue and inspires trailblazers to drive positive change. I look forward to observing the ways in which it impacts Brad and Hal professionally and personally.”

The Leadership Initiative provides emerging leaders from across the state with the opportunity to participate in a microcosm of the Leadership Alabama program year. Participants explore issues in education, economic development, politics and government with leading experts in these areas. The 2016 speakers roster included numerous Leadership Alabama alumni and state political figures, including Governor Robert Bentley, Senator Quinton Ross and Senator Cam Ward.

The Leadership Initiative was established to serve a dual purpose: expose young professionals to Alabama’s decision makers who are particularly sensitive to challenges the state faces, and also to promote understanding and belief among participants that a personal commitment to helping Alabama meet those challenges is a lifelong honor and obligation.

In his practice, Mr. Robertson works with clients facing government investigations and litigations, dealing with whistleblower allegations and qui tam actions, and planning compliance programs to prevent these occurrences in the first place. He helps his clients to navigate compliance and potential liability under the False Claims Act, Anti-Kickback Statute and the Financial Institutions Reform, Recovery, and Enforcement Act, in addition to other areas of health care fraud and abuse, financial or mortgage fraud, and white collar criminal law.

Mr. Mooty focuses his practice on commercial litigation matters, including contract disputes and business torts, across the Southeast. He often handles cases where injunctive relief is requested, frequently in emergency situations where the success or failure of a business is at stake. Mr. Mooty has years of experience representing individuals and businesses in state and federal courts, as well as in arbitration proceedings. His litigation experience includes numerous non-compete, non-solicitation and non-disclosure cases. He has assisted and advised clients with emerging joint venture, partnership and shareholder disputes.
