Awards and Recognition, Press Release

Bradley Arant Boult Cummings LLP is pleased to announce that 87 of the firm’s attorneys and 20 of the firm’s practice areas across its nine offices have been highly ranked in the 2017 edition of Chambers USA, the prestigious, independent referral directory for the legal industry.

Among the firm’s ranked attorneys, Nashville, Tenn., partner William (Will) F. Goodman, III, and Birmingham partner Tripp Haston each earned national recognition for their Products Liability & Mass Torts practices.

“We are extremely honored by the high rankings that our attorneys and firm earn from Chambers and Partners each year, and 2017 is no exception,” said Bradley Chairman of the Board and Managing Partner Beau Grenier. “We congratulate our lawyers who have received these accolades for their capabilities, leadership and accomplishments in diverse practice areas.”

London-based Chambers and Partners annually ranks the leading U.S. firms and attorneys based on in-depth research and client and peer interviews. The Chambers USA guide is widely read by industry-leading companies and organizations across the nation.

Individual attorneys are evaluated based on their legal knowledge and experience, ability and effectiveness, and client service. Most attorneys are ranked in bands of 1-6, while others earn a variety of specialized Chambers designations. These include “Star Individual” (received exceptional recommendations in his/her field), “Eminent Practitioner” (less active in fee-earning work but still a key player in the team), “Senior Statesman” (no longer works hands-on with the same intensity but remains pivotal to the firm’s success), “Recognised Practitioner” (handles notable matters and/or has received some recommendation), “Up and Coming” (does not yet have an established reputation but is driving his/her firm's growth) and “Associate to Watch” (recognized for his/her work in the background of major deals).
