ACBA Leadership Firms

About Leadership Firms

The Alameda County Bar Association is proud of the relationships it has built with law firms throughout the county. Working together, we have the opportunity to enhance the practice of law and the administration of justice in Alameda County. ACBA Leadership Firms is a program that recognizes and rewards those law firms of ten or more attorneys that have 100% membership in the ACBA (i.e., every one of the firm’s Alameda County attorneys is a member of the ACBA).

Being a Leadership Firm means:

  • The firm’s name and logo appear on the ACBA website with live links to the firm’s website. The ACBA website has recently seen as many as 1,200 unique visitors in a single day; this is a great way for your firm to stand out in the crowded legal field;

  • A substantive profile of each of the Leadership Firms will be featured on the ACBA blog throughout the year—another way to raise your firm’s visibility in the legal community;

  • An annual Managing Partners Forum will give firm leaders an opportunity to gather and share the unique issues that face them; and

  • The ACBA is exploring additional benefits to reward and recognize the Leadership Firms.
