Bradley Arant Boult Cummings LLP is pleased to announce that 19 of the firm’s Jackson attorneys are included in the 2020 edition of The Best Lawyers in America, one of the most highly regarded attorney referral publications, which is now in its 26th year. 

In addition, Best Lawyers named three of the firm’s Jackson attorneys as “Lawyers of the Year.” Firmwide, 252 attorneys at Bradley were listed by Best Lawyers.

“We are proud to have so many of our attorneys recognized once again by the Best Lawyers guide as among the top attorneys and practice leaders in the nation,” said Bradley Chairman of the Board and Managing Partner Jonathan M. Skeeters. “We commend our attorneys who all go above and beyond to deliver outstanding service and value to our clients across our many offices throughout the U.S.”

Attorneys are selected for Best Lawyers through extensive surveys of leading lawyers who assess the legal abilities of their peers. Lawyers are not permitted to pay a fee to participate or be recognized. The 2020 edition is based on more than 7.8 million evaluations and recognizes more than 60,000 attorneys in 145 practice areas.

In each metropolitan area, only a single attorney in each legal practice area is designated as the “Lawyer of the Year.” The Jackson attorneys selected by Best Lawyers as “Lawyers of the Year” for 2020 (as well as their recognized practice areas) are Ralph B. Germany, Jr. (construction law), J. William Manuel (litigation - environmental) and Stephen Thomas (litigation - intellectual property).
