Bradley Arant Boult Cummings has set up its eighth office around the Southeast by recruiting 12 lawyers from Tampa firm Glenn Rasmussen. The attorneys, who constituted most of the Glenn Rasmussen team, focus on banking and insolvency, commercial litigation, corporate finance, labor and employment, real estate and transactions work.
“This is a milestone in the growth of Bradley Arant Boult Cummings, and it marks our entry into the Florida market, which has long been a priority for the firm,” said Chairman Beau Grenier. “Our new colleagues have a strong reputation for high quality client service, which is one of our core values, and they add bench strength to our key practices. We look forward to serving clients throughout Florida from our new location.”
BABC officials also said they will "continue to explore opportunities for strategic growth." Should that involve a new territory, they could do worse than look at the South's largest city, which now sits neatly encircled by the firm's offices in Birmingham, Nashville, Charlotte and Tampa.
Lest you were thinking Nashville's legal industry movements so far in 2015 are an anomaly, Bradley Arant Boult Cummings has recruited two veteran attorneys to its Birmingham office's litigation and securities groups. Edward Sledge and Stuart Maxey have made the move from Maynard Cooper & Gale.
Key Rehabilitation, a Murfreesboro-based company that provides therapy services here and in five Midwestern states, has filed for protection from its creditors. Bradley Arant attorney Bill Norton tells NBJ reporter Eleanor Kennedy the company's leaders expect to reorganize before year's end and that the filing is the result of the company's former CFO "hiding the true picture" of its finances.
