Bernard Taylor, co-leader of the Products Liability Group, has been recognized by Minority Corporate Counsel Association as a "Leading Law Firm Rainmaker" in its 2010 "Best of the Best" edition of Diversity & The Bar. In the spotlight piece, Taylor was lauded for his genuine efforts to partner with his clients. “Lately, a lot of firms and clients have experienced challenging circumstances,” he said. “Partnering doesn’t stop: that’s when we as attorneys need to step up and share the risk and the difficulties. It’s only then that clients know we’re sincere.”
Taylor also provides advice for young attorneys: “Be willing to try new things. Don’t get stuck in habits, and always keep an open mind . . . .” He deems himself fortunate to “work with a team of top-quality lawyers and an equally good staff” at Alston & Bird.
