WSFA TV12 Reporter Bethany Wales visited the sixth annual Beasley Allen Legal Conference, held in Montgomery Dec. 6-7, 2012. This is the largest legal conference of its kind in the state, open to all Alabama attorneys in private practice. Beasley Allen Law Firm hosts the conference each year, providing attorneys with the chance to earn continuing legal education credits, as well as for networking and building business and collegial relationships. A special feature of this year’s conference was a booth where attorneys could learn more about the BP Oil Spill litigation and settlement, provided by Beasley Allen. Beasley Allen Shareholder Greg Allen explained, “It’s really surprising that there are still attorneys that don’t understand that every single business in the state of Alabama could potentially have a BP claim.” Conference sponsors included Lexis Nexis, Carr Riggs & Ingram, Freedom Reporting and Jackson Thornton. More than 1,400 attorneys attended.
