Former U.S. Representative Martha Roby is joining the law firm of Bradley Arant Boult Cummings as a senior advisor for governmental affairs and economic development.
After five terms representing Alabama’s 2nd District in Congress, Roby opted not to run for reelection in 2020. During her tenure, Roby served on the House Appropriations Committee, the House Armed Services Committee, the House Judiciary Committee, the House Education and Workforce Committee and the House Committee on Agriculture.
“Martha has a decade of service as a member of Congress and service on the Montgomery City Council, as well as a background in private legal practice,” Bradley chairman of the board and managing partner Jonathan Skeeters said in a written statement. “She brings tremendous experience to our firm and will be able to help advance the interests of our clients in Alabama and across the country.”
Roby has a law degree from Cumberland School of Law at Samford University and was in private practice prior to her elected service. She will provide governmental affairs but not legal services to Bradley clients.
“During her service in Congress, she distinguished herself for her ability to solve problems for her constituents and to work well with all members of Congress,” said David Stewart, Bradley’s governmental affairs practice group leader. “Martha has a wide breadth of experience from her time in Washington and on the Montgomery City Council. We are very excited to have Martha join us.”
Bradley has offices in Alabama, Florida, Mississippi, North Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and the District of Columbia. The firm’s over 500 lawyers represent regional, national and international clients in various industries, including financial services, healthcare, life sciences, real estate, construction, technology, energy, insurance, and entertainment, among many others.
