Clark A. Cooper Re-Elected as Alabama State Delegate for the American Bar Association House of Delegates
Balch & Bingham today announced that Clark A. Cooper, partner in the firm’s Creditors Rights & Bankruptcy and Litigation Practice Groups, has been re-elected as Alabama’s State Delegate for the American Bar Association (ABA) House of Delegates.
The ABA House of Delegates sets policy for the ABA, allowing its public policy and education services to push forward initiatives important to ABA members. The House meets twice each year, at ABA Annual and Midyear Meetings. At the Midyear Meeting, the Nominating Committee nominates officers and members of the Board of Governors. Cooper will serve a three-year term as Alabama’s only ABA State Delegate, and is one of 50 total state delegates. He currently also serves as a division director for the ABA Section of Litigation, in which he oversees multiple committees in the section.
Cooper has more than 19 years of experience as a litigator. He has represented clients in a wide variety of litigation, including creditor and lender rights matters and concerns, construction disputes, class actions, fraud claims and significant insurance claim cases. Cooper also has litigated cases involving significant personal injury and wrongful death. He has held leadership positions with the ABA since 1998.
“Clark’s commitment and dedication to the legal profession is a noteworthy achievement. We congratulate him on this accomplishment and know that he will continue to serve as an exemplary representative for the State of Alabama,” said Alan T. Rogers, Balch & Bingham’s managing partner.
The American Bar Association is recognized as the world’s largest voluntary professional organization with nearly 400,000 members and more than 3,500 entities.
