Bradley is a national law firm with a reputation for skilled legal work, exceptional client service, and impeccable integrity. We provide business clients around the world with a full suite of legal services in dozens of industries and practice areas.

Founded in 1870 in Elyton, Alabama, before moving to Birmingham the following year, Bradley has retained the tradition of southern hospitality even as the law firm has grown into a global force. Our founding partners established the highest standards of value, ethics, and professional excellence in the practice of law - standards that have guided us through to the present day. Respect for our clients, colleagues, and communities and passion for our work are the driving forces behind everything we do. That kind of integrity means that clients can trust us to not only serve their needs, but ensure that the work is completed the right way.

Our 10 offices are located in Alabama, Florida, Mississippi, North Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and the District of Columbia, giving us an extensive geographic base to represent clients on a regional, national, and international basis. We frequently serve as national coordinating counsel, regional counsel, and statewide counsel for clients in various industries.

Diversity and equality in the workforce are core values at Bradley, allowing us to leverage a wide range of perspectives to help us achieve the results that we expect and our clients demand. We are also committed to giving back to our communities with meaningful pro bono legal services and charitable contributions through the Bradley Arant Boult Cummings Charitable Foundation.

Although we are a large law firm with more than 500 lawyers, our clients still enjoy the personal attention, responsiveness, and deep relationships they would expect from a boutique firm. Our attorneys and staff combine legal experience and knowledge with a sophisticated understanding of industries to work side by side with clients and come up with practical, strategic solutions specifically tailored to their business operations. Bradley lawyers use their talents, judgment, work ethic, and experience to go above and beyond expectations to help our clients meet their goals.

Hitting Employers with Their Best Shot: Complying with OSHA’s COVID-19 Vaccination and Testing Emergency Rule Webinar Recording
Bradley Arant Boult Cummings LLP, November 2021

OSHA has released its long-awaited emergency rule requiring the COVID-19 vaccine or weekly testing for many employers. With compliance deadlines coming up, Bradley is here to help employers navigate this new rule to stay in compliance. While we monitor the outcome of judicial review of OSHA’s ETS, we suggest taking the following steps to prepare your workplace for compliance with the new vaccine or test mandate: Develop a policy. Educate employees. Figure out who is already vaccinated and start a roster. Provide paid time off to support employee vaccination. Set up a system for tracking tests (if you are going to allow a testing alternative)...

The SEC and Disgorgement After Liu
Bradley Arant Boult Cummings LLP, November 2021

A recent Fifth Circuit ruling suggests a softening of the SEC’s obligation to return disgorgement awards directly to victims, says Elisha Kobre, a partner at Bradley Arant Boult Cummings LLP.

Bruce Ely Quoted in Law360 on Railway Fuel Purchases
Bradley Arant Boult Cummings LLP, December 2021

[!Bradley attorney Bruce Ely was featured in Law360 discussing a recent BNSF Railway Company case. A state judge ruled BNSF Railway Co. is entitled to a $1 million refund of an Alabama city’s diesel fuel tax, plus another $1.2 million in pre-judgment interest, finding an Eleventh Circuit decision barring the state of Alabama from imposing discriminatory taxes on railroads also applies to localities.   Ely, who represented the business that sold BNSF the diesel fuel, W.C.
