Birmingham Bar Association


The Business Law Section of the BBA was formed in 2011 to enhance the opportunities for business lawyers in the Birmingham area to enjoy the benefits offered by the BBA. The primary objectives of the Business Law Section include the following:

• Increased social and business interaction among business lawyers;
• Enhanced sharing of resources among local business lawyers;
• Identification of unique areas of expertise within the local bar (e.g., immigration, intellectual property, franchise law, etc.);
• Increased referral opportunities for local business lawyers;
• Enhanced BBA participation by local business lawyers;
• Create opportunities for smaller firms and sole practitioners to access specialized expertise, resources, free advice, etc.;
• Participation by in-house business lawyers;
• Enhanced CLE opportunities for business lawyers (e.g., sponsorship of the Cumberland Southeastern Business Law Institute);

Any current member of the Birmingham Bar Association may join the section.  Section dues are $25.00 in addition to Regular dues.
