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.

  • “As a small business owner, I have used Ladd Mark in a variety of capacities over the time that I have known him.  He has helped me through the complex issues of both disposing of and acquiring a business.  At all times during both transactions (and everything that comes up in between), Ladd exemplified the legal competence and professionalism, which I have come to expect from all of my dealings with the staff at Burr Forman. Ladd combines his broad knowledge of legal issues with prompt, courteous service and sincere empathy for a business owner that is truly overwhelmed with the density of transactions.  His communication skills kept me aware of where I stood during transactions.  Ladd has definitely helped me through some difficult situations, and I consider him a friend.”
