Bradley is pleased to announce that Charles A. Roberts Jr., a partner in the firm’s Birmingham office, is among the recipients of the M&A Advisor’s 10th Annual Emerging Leaders Awards. The awards recognize the achievements of young M&A, financing and turnaround professionals who have reached a significant level of success while still under the age of 40.

“The firm congratulates Charlie on his recognition as one of M&A Advisor’s Emerging Leaders,” said Bradley Birmingham Office Managing Partner Dawn Helms Sharff. “Charlie continues to demonstrate outstanding leadership at Bradley as a young professional making notable contributions to the M&A industry and community. He is one of multiple Bradley attorneys who have received this honor over the years.”

The M&A Advisor’s Emerging Leaders began as the 40 Under 40 Awards in the United States in 2010 and later became the Emerging Leader Awards upon expansion to the United Kingdom and Europe. An independent judging panel of prominent leaders in the M&A, finance and turnaround community determined the winners, who will be formally recognized at a black tie awards gala Sept. 17 in New York City as part of the 2019 Emerging Leaders Summit.
