RIDGELAND, Miss. (AP) - The Butler Snow law firm is expanding in Alabama, adding 19 attorneys to its office in Birmingham.
A spokesman for the firm says the expansion will bring its national staff of attorneys to nearly 280, with a total of 24 in Birmingham.
Chairman Donald Clark Jr. says Birmingham is a strategically important market as Butler Snow continues a previously announced national expansion.
In February, the firm expanded its public finance, tax incentives and credit markets practice group with five attorneys in Denver and four in Atlanta and Macon, Ga.
The firm also recently expanded into the New York market. It has 17 offices around the world and is based in Ridgeland.
Butler Snow's Birmingham office is downtown at One Federal Plaza.
