Burr's Marcel Debruge Featured in Business Alabama

February 13, 2013

Birmingham partner Marcel Debruge was recently interviewed for an article in Business Alabama Magazine on  “The Competitive Edge and Right-To-Work.”

In the February 2013 issue of Business Alabama, Marcel DeBruge, Birmingham partner, was interviewed in the article “The Competitive Edge and Right-To-Work.” The article discusses the importance of Alabama’s right-to-work laws and the increasing competition to attract auto manufacturers to the state.

As more states such as Indiana and Michigan hope to lure in car manufacturers by passing right-to-work laws, DeBruge said the changes in labor laws represent a fracture in the wall between right-to-work and non-right-to-work states. He believes Alabama should continue to be a preferred place to start a  manufacturing operation not only because of its labor laws, but because it’s a state that puts an emphasis on growing business.

    -Chambers 2012

  • “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.”
