Miss a program you wanted to attend? Short on CLE? Did you know many of our programs are recorded and available on demand?

This week’s edition of Pensacola’s 𝗜𝗻𝘄𝗲𝗲𝗸𝗹𝘆 features interviews with two of Clark Partington’s distinguished shareholders, 𝗗𝗼𝘂𝗴 𝗕𝗮𝘁𝗲𝘀 and 𝗝𝗲𝗿𝗲𝗺𝘆 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.

We are exceedingly proud of these gents, and hope you enjoy reading about their lives, law practice and leadership roles:
