This six-month program was created in 1995 by Leadership Alabama to complement the organization's existing leadership programs. The initiative is tailored to young professionals and provides them with the opportunity to interact with decision-makers in Alabama. The program aims to instill a sense of personal responsibility to help Alabama conquer the challenges it faces as a state and shape its future.

Balch & Bingham has been a longtime supporter of Leadership Alabama and its sister program, Alabama Leadership Initiative (ALI), having had numerous professionals participate in one of the programs, including COO David Miceli, Birmingham Partner Greg Butrus, Montgomery Office Managing Partner Riley Roby, Birmingham Partner Alan Rogers, Birmingham Of Counsel D. Paul Jones, Jr., Birmingham Partner Jeremy Retherford, and Birmingham Attorney Kelsi Long. Additionally, Firm Managing Partner Stan Blanton serves on the Birmingham Regional Council of Leadership Alabama.

Robert's practice focuses on a wide variety of corporate and business-related matters. He regularly advises public and private companies through middle market mergers and acquisitions, and he also counsels startups, midsized businesses and large corporations on general matters such as commercial contracts, business planning and entity formation, capital raise efforts, corporate governance and reorganizations, debt and equity financings and economic development incentives. Robert works closely with our clients' legal and business teams through the entirety of the business life cycle—from entity formation, day-to-day corporate matters, owner exits and eventual dissolution.

Robert is an active member of the local community, participating in Volunteer Lawyers of Birmingham and the Rotaract Club of Birmingham. He also sits on the Executive Committee of the Birmingham Bar Association’s Young Lawyer Section and the Junior Board of the Levite Jewish Community Center.
