Economic Development Responsible for Burr’s Mobile Growth

March 12, 2012

Recently, Burr attorney Ed Bowron was interviewed by the Mobile Chamber of Commerce about Burr’s Mobile office and its continued growth:

Why are you located in Mobile?

“Economic development is the driver for Mobile,” said Bowron. “Burr & Forman is a leader in the field, representing several automotive manufacturers and actively worked with Thyssen Krupp from the start of construction to opening and beyond. The firm needed and wanted a presence in Mobile as we saw the recent industry developments and business growth in the area. Mobile is a shining star and has unique features for even more growth in the future.”

Why do you support the Mobile Area Chamber of Commerce’s Partners for Growth initiative?

“Economic development opportunities are going to continue to occur,” said Bowron. “People will look at Mobile‘s infrastructure, waterways, rails and see the potential. With Burr & Forman’s presence in the community, we feel it is a vote of confidence in the community and its great potential to continue to grow.”

What do you see as Mobile’s greatest potential?

“Mobile has Brookley, the waterfront, and very unique features including a great rail system already in place,” said Bowron. “We know there are and will continue to be opportunities to expand our scope of legal services in Mobile and we are looking towards the future. We want to have a presence here and be ready with exceptional talent to meet the needs of the business community.”

  • “For the past four years, my Atlantic Capital Bank deal team has engaged the legal services of Lindsey Arnold to close several large and complex bank loan transactions.  To name a few, these deals include a $10million line of credit to a linen service company, a $15million Term Loan to a prominent, market leading textile manufacturer (and a subsequent recapitalization of this loan arrangement), a $12million Term Loan facility for a major grocery store chain, a $12million Construction to Mini Perm Facility and a separate $10million for a large national beverage distribution family of businesses.  Not only was Lindsey’s service of the utmost professionalism and very quick responsiveness, but also she treated the bank’s client’s with a very high level of courteousness and integrity.  Our clients are the lifeblood of our business and it is important that our legal partners handle our relationships get off to a good start.  In addition, rarely do loans sit on a shelf…there are always changes along the way and Lindsey has been very quick to respond to our needs (driven by our clients’ needs) in terms of amendments and deal restructurings.  In addition to solid deal execution…Lindsey is a terrific resource when it comes to early stage legal guidance as we as bankers think through competitive and creative deal structures.  Lindsey has been great and we hope to steer more deals in her direction as we grow the institution.”
