Renaissance Montgomery Hotel Spa 2nd Annual Beasley Allen Retreat a great successMore than 900 attorneys attended the second annual Beasley Allen Retreat at the Renaissance Montgomery Hotel and Spa at the Convention Center Friday, Nov. 21 and Saturday, Nov. 22. The retreat provides continuing education credits and is open to all Alabama lawyers in private practice.

Beasley Allen Founding Shareholder Jere L. Beasley presented the meeting’s keynote opening address on the topic “Why I am a Trial Lawyer.” Other highlights of the weekend event included special guest luncheon speaker Paul Finebaum, a popular sports commentator and columnist; a dinner Friday evening featuring special guest speaker Dr. David Bronner, CEO of the Retirement Systems of Alabama, on the topic “The Future of Alabama and the Laws that Apply;” and a keynote address Saturday morning by Congressman Artur Davis on “National Politics and the Law.”

Other featured speakers were Judge Charles Price, Mark White, President of the Alabama Bar Association; State Senator Roger Bedford; Ted Hosp of Maynard Cooper; and Jeremy McIntire from the Alabama State Bar. Beasley Allen shareholders Greg Allen, Dee Miles, Cole Portis, Rhon Jones, Julia Beasley Kendall Dunson, Andy Birchfield, LaBarron Boone, and Dana Taunton also spoke during the seminar.

“We are extremely pleased to be able to offer this program as a service for lawyers from throughout the state of Alabama,” said Tom Methvin, Managing Shareholder of Beasley Allen, who also was a presenter during the event. “This is a valuable opportunity for continuing education, as well as providing the chance for networking and building business relationships with other attorneys.”

According to Dawn Hathcock, Vice President for the Montgomery Area Chamber of Commerce Convention & Visitor Bureau, the direct economic impact of the conference is a quarter million dollars. Beasley Allen booked every available hotel room in the downtown area for the event, as well as rooms at several other properties throughout the city.

“A revitalized downtown with an expanded Convention Center allows Montgomery to host larger groups than ever before, and the economic impact is significant,” Hathcock says. “This includes hotel room nights, as well as revenue generated from people dining, shopping and visiting attractions during their stay. That’s all money that goes back into the community and supports the infrastructure and quality of life for our residents.”

Wonderful to work with

Beasley Allen did a great job with my case. They were wonderful to work with. They were available by phone when I needed them, treated me with the utmost respect and worked hard on my behalf. If a need arises in the future, I would definitely call on them again.
