Press Release

Bradley Arant Boult Cummings LLP is pleased to announce that Huntsville associate Harold D. Mooty, III has been elected as the 2016-2017 president of the Alabama Defense Lawyers Association’s (ADLA) Young Lawyers Section.

“Congratulations to Hal in this new endeavor,” said Bradley Chairman of the Board and Managing Partner Beau Grenier. “Hal is a bright, driven and talented attorney who has always demonstrated outstanding leadership qualities with organizations such as the Alabama State Bar and the Madison County Volunteer Lawyers Program. I have no doubt that he will excel in the role of ADLA Young Lawyers president, will lead with wisdom beyond his years, and will be a driving force in the group’s 2016-2017 success.”

The ADLA was established to unite lawyers who devote a substantial amount of time to the handling of civil defense cases, to ultimately improve the skills of civil defense lawyers and elevate the standards of trial practice. ADLA seeks to encourage high standards of practice in conjunction with similar associations in other legal areas. The group also endeavors to improve the adversary system of jurisprudence in Alabama courts by eliminating court congestion and promoting improvements in the administration of justice.

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.

In addition to his ADLA Young Lawyers commitments, Mr. Mooty serves on the Young Lawyers Executive Committee to the Alabama State Bar, where he has helped to organize and lead Huntsville’s annual Minority Pre-law Conference. He continues to support Children’s Hospital of Alabama through the Committee of the Future, as well as the Huntsville-based HudsonAlpha Institute for Biotechnology as an ambassador. He also volunteers his time with the Madison County Volunteer Lawyers Program and is a past president of Crisis Services of North Alabama, a non-profit corporation serving victims of domestic violence and their families across North Alabama.
