In 2004, Christian & Small was selected as a member of the International Society of Primerus Law Firms, a global network of top-rated law firms which have undergone an extensive screening process for membership selection. The firm is proud to have been the first of only two Alabama law firms selected for membership in Primerus. Within this elite organization is the Primerus Defense Institute (PDI), a collaborative endeavor engaging Primerus defense attorneys in an effort to lower business litigation costs and reduce exposure to liability. Duncan Manley, a partner with Christian & Small, co-founded and was elected as the Chair of the PDI. The PDI is a valuable resource for corporations seeking outside counsel.
