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.”

    -Chambers 2012

  • “As a client of Burr & Forman, I feel that my organization has excellent representation.  I have consulted with Amy Jordan and Bryance Metheny on numerous issues and have always found them both to be very responsive and to clarify legal matters or concerns with a sense of urgency. Specifically, Amy has handled our EEOC claims with the utmost attention to detail and has been the reason that we were successful in defending our EEOC claims with the level of success that we have had thus far.

    When we were being inundated with unemployment decisions favoring former employees, Bryance and Amy met with our Human Resources team to instruct us on the specifics of the section of law and we have had great success in turning our experience rating and saving our company a great deal in unemployment costs.  My organization relies heavily on the attorneys at Burr & Forman to provide legal advice as it relates to our strategic initiatives and to decrease our liability as an employer.”
