September 17, 2020
Lightfoot, Franklin & White LLC partner Jackson R. Sharman III has been named to Leadership Alabama’s Class XXXI for 2020-21. He is among a handful of leaders in the state chosen for the annual program after a rigorous and competitive selection process.
Each year the nonprofit brings together a group of established leaders from around the state to learn about the priorities and issues that affect Alabama. They attend retreats and visit communities across the state to gain an understanding of the needs and opportunities that exist in areas such as education, economic development, quality of life and government. The program’s purpose is to inspire leaders to act individually and together to move Alabama toward its full potential.
Sharman has practiced law for nearly 30 years and leads Lightfoot’s White-Collar Criminal Defense and Corporate Investigations practice. He defends businesses and individuals in civil and criminal white-collar cases, provides guidance during corporate internal investigations and advises clients on how to stay in compliance with the law. He served as special counsel to the House Financial Services Committee for the Whitewater investigation involving President Bill Clinton, and he was special counsel to the Judiciary Committee of the Alabama House of Representatives for the impeachment investigation of Gov. Robert Bentley.
