Bradley Arant Boult Cummings, LLP
Colleague David Clark said J. Douglas “Doug” Minor Jr., a partner at Bradley Arant Boult Cummings, LLP, exemplifies what it means to be a Leader in the Law in Mississippi: He is a go-to counsel for clients and also gives generously of his time to both the legal profession and the community.
“Doug got his start early as a litigator, winning his first case when he was still in law school,” Clark said. “A member of the Appellate Litigation Clinic Program at Georgetown Law School, Doug successfully argued an appeal before the Fourth Circuit in Biggs v. Meadows on behalf of an indigent prisoner in an inmate rights case.”
Since law school Minor has argued appellate matters before the Second Circuit in New York and the Fifth Circuit in New Orleans, and has tried numerous cases in state and federal court. Today he serves as trusted litigation counsel to several large financial services and insurance companies throughout the Southeastern U.S.
“Doug’s clients rely on both his experience and trial skills as they face bet-the company corporate litigation, including class actions and complex fraud cases,” Clark said. “His value to clients is exemplified by the fact he was the youngest lawyer in Mississippi to be ranked in the prestigious Chambers USA guide, which honors lawyers singled out by clients and peers. Doug has also been recognized as a Rising Star by Super Lawyers publication, and is listed in Best Lawyers in America in the field of commercial litigation.”
Minor serves as a member of the firm-wide marketing and diversity committees for Bradley Arant Boult Cummings. He is spearheading a new marketing initiative for the firm’s Jackson office, and is active in the firm’s recruiting efforts. He searches out law students who might not otherwise apply to work at the firm, and serves as a mentor to many of the Jackson’s office associates and summer law clerks.
A former president of the Jackson Young Lawyers Association, Minor current is vice chair of the Litigation Section of The Mississippi Bar and on the diversity committee for the Capital Area Bar Association. He also contributes pro bono time representing low-income individuals referred to him through the Mississippi Volunteer Lawyers Project. He is a former president of the board of director for Operation Shoestring, and has served on the boards of Stewpot Community Services, the Community Foundation of Greater Jackson and The Farish Street YMCA.
