Firm Details

Lightfoot, Franklin & White, LLC was founded on January 15, 1990, by eight litigation partners from the largest firm in Alabama, and we presently have over 60 lawyers. Our size allows us to provide for our clients the best of all worlds — the resources and technology of a nationwide firm, and the efficiency and individuality of a regional firm.

In order to concentrate on what we do best, our attorneys focus solely on civil litigation matters, with the exceptions of also assisting clients with environmental compliance advice, issues concerning white-collar crime, and conducting internal investigations. We handle all types of civil litigation in state and federal courts across the United States, and our primary areas of practice include commercial disputes, product liability, antitrust, consumer fraud, appeals, intellectual property, catastrophic personal injury and death, environmental/toxic torts, class actions, professional malpractice, securities fraud, employment and communications.
