Q&As with the New Chair of The Florida Bar Business Law Section and Third-Time First Circuit Representative of The Florida Bar Board of Governors

Clark Partington Attorneys at Law is exceedingly proud of the work and service of two of its distinguished Pensacola shareholders, Douglas A. Bates and Jeremy C. Branning, who currently serve in statewide leadership roles with The Florida Bar. Most recently, on July 1, 2022, Doug Bates officially began his one-year term as Chair of the Business Law Section of The Florida Bar, following his installment at last month’s annual Florida Bar Convention in Orlando. Likewise, in 2018, Jeremy Branning was elected to serve as the First Circuit’s Representative on The Florida Bar’s Board of Governors for a two-year term, and has continued in that role unopposed through his third two-year term ending in 2024. This week, we invited Doug and Jeremy to sit down with us for a couple of Q&A interviews to learn more about the nature and scope of their leadership roles with The Florida Bar. Find their insightful responses on the following page.
