Burr & Forman Partner Jack P. Stephenson, Jr. Elected to Council of Alabama Law Institute

February 28, 2012

Burr & Forman is pleased to announce that Birmingham partner Jack P. Stephenson, Jr. has been elected to the Council of the Alabama Law Institute, the governing body of the Institute.

This prestigious elected position is awarded to just six practicing lawyers from each of the seven congressional districts in the state of Alabama.

The Alabama Law Institute works closely with the Legislative Reference Service in the annual proper placement and codification acts passed by the Legislature within the Code of Alabama. The Legislative Reference Service prepares the vast majority of bills for each session for the Legislature, while major code revision work, such as revision of an entire section of law, is handled by the Alabama Law Institute.

“Jack is a tremendous talent and has a keen insight into legislative issues in Alabama,” said W. Lee Thuston, managing partner of Burr & Forman LLP. “We are confident that his leadership skills and incomparable experience will help him excel in this new role to the benefit of all citizens in our great state.”

    - Kellogg Brown & Root

  • “I worked with him before...He’s a good lawyer with a good reputation.”

    -Chambers 2012

  • “He has an in-depth understanding of creditors’ rights law and bankruptcy law. He is extremely responsive and is capable of seeing the business side of workouts, not just the legal side. He helps come up with a solution that is often times mutually acceptable to both sides and is tremendously successful in all the work he’d done. By far my favorite bankruptcy lawyer in Florida.”

    -Chambers 2012

  • “We think they are really excellent. Responsiveness is extremely important to me. I’m very demanding, I have to be, and I make that crystal clear to who I work with because I’d go elsewhere otherwise. I need proper, quick response times, not just within 24 hours. Our commercial needs are very much taken into account. They are extremely aware of business practicalities as well as legal technicalities. They provide excellent value. They are flexible and we’ve been happy. We are really very pleased.”
