Lightfoot Practices and Attorneys Earn Prominent Placements in Chambers and Partners USA 2024 Guide

June 6, 2024

Lightfoot, Franklin & White LLC has been recognized once again as one of the top litigation firms in Alabama in the Chambers USA 2024 Guide. The firm was designated a “Band 1” general commercial litigation firm in Alabama for another consecutive year. Lightfoot also debuted as a “Band 1” white-collar crime and government investigations firm in Alabama. “Band 1” is the highest ranking the legal industry’s prestigious, independent referral directory can bestow. 

One Chambers source described Lightfoot as “simply the best at what it does in Alabama,” while another describes our lawyers as providing “exceptional service, high-level communication and excellent strategic thinking.”

Both the Birmingham and Houston offices, as well as 15 Lightfoot trial lawyers, were recognized. The guide also again highlighted the firm’s work in appellate, environmental and medical malpractice defense matters in Alabama, as well as general commercial litigation in Texas.

The new edition of Chambers USA also recognizes 15 Lightfoot partners: 

Essig, Ford, Sharman and Olson were all listed in Chambers USA for the first time this year. In addition, Samuel H. Franklin was named a “Senior Statesperson” for Alabama Litigation: General Commercial.
