GSE partners, Tammy Stokes and David Guin, recently attended the 11th Annual Black Tie Weekend of the INBLF (International Network of Boutique Law Firms) in the nation’s capital. Guin currently serves as the President of the Alabama Chapter of the organization. The Black Tie Dinner was held at the United States Supreme Court’s Great Hall with Justice Samuel A. Alito, Jr. as guest of honor. Guest speaker, Kenneth Feinberg, spoke of his work as special master for victims’ compensation funds, including the BP Oil Spill and the families affected by the 9/11 World Trade Center attack.

The INBLF is a network of highly credentialed single-discipline boutique law firms, across the United States and Canada. The INBLF is not an organization a lawyer or law firm can join by paying a fee. The INBLF carefully reviews the qualifications each potential member and invites only those who represent the highest level of knowledge, experience, and reputation to join. Each member carries credentials comparable or superior to what can be found at the highest-ranking full-service firms, without the insulating layers of intermediate attorneys between the client and the lawyer, and without the concomitant exorbitant billing rates.
