BIRMINGHAM, Ala., Feb. 1, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The Birmingham office of Bressler, Amery & Ross, P.C., celebrates its third anniversary this week – a three-year period that saw tremendous growth in its pro bono rankings and acknowledgement as one of the best places to work in the city.
"It's been a terrific success for Bressler to be in Birmingham," said A. Inge Selden, III, a veteran of the Birmingham legal scene who, as office managing principal, oversaw the 2014 office opening and continues to lead the firm's location there.
Since the office opened with Mr. Selden and 10 other attorneys in 2014, New Jersey-based Bressler has grown to a total of 39 lawyers and staff in Birmingham. The office has 13 female attorneys and 14 male attorneys – along with a support staff of 12 women.
"The Birmingham office has been a win-win for Bressler and our clients in all our offices," says Brian F. Amery, Bressler's firm-wide managing principal. "The office has added depth to our national practice areas, boosted our local presence in the legal market, helped us to greatly enhance our pro bono efforts and has been recognized as one of the best places for employees to work in the city."
The office was recently honored for its pro bono work as the winner of the 2016 Pro Bono Midsize Firm of the Year award by the Birmingham Bar Volunteer Lawyers Program (BBVLP). The BBVLP cited the hours Bressler has volunteered and number of attorneys who took part in their programs over the last year.
The office was also singled out as one of the best places to work by the Birmingham Business Journal.
Bressler specializes in employment and securities matters for financial institutions and other corporations. Its Birmingham office is located in the Park Place Tower. While the Birmingham office has grown since 2014, Mr. Selden said its future growth will continue to be steady and strategic now that the office resides in permanent space. "We felt the Park Place space was the best location for our needs, and it gives us the chance to grow with additional lawyers and staff in the future as we see fit," he said.
