Said Jabbour

Associate

I joined Adams and Reese as an associate in 2017 after serving as a summer associate at the firm. I’ve enjoyed developing experience in a range of areas – including corporate law, mergers and acquisitions, real estate transactions, and government litigation.

Since joining the firm, Said Jabbour has contributed to multiple real estate and transactional matters, including drafting agreements and conveyancing documents for multiple multimillion-dollar corporate mergers; drafting loan documents for syndicated loan agreements and real estate mortgages; drafting purchase and sale agreements for real estate and oil and gas transactions in Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi and Texas; assisting in creating the corporate structure for an investment holding company in Texas; drafting quiet title complaints and partitions by sale for real estate in Alabama; drafting user license agreements for telecommunication services companies and reviewing FOIA released documents relating to government housing agency action.

Before joining Adams and Reese, Said was a summer associate with a Birmingham, Alabama firm in 2015 and 2016, where he drafted memoranda concerning cases in bankruptcy, financial services litigation, medical malpractice, mergers and acquisitions and banking while also drafting a section of an appellate brief. Said was also an honor student with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission’s Division of Enforcement in 2016, where he conducted research on securities laws, examined financial documents and securities registrations for micro-entities and midsize corporations and drafted an internal action memorandum to recommend a case to the Commission. Said also served as a judicial intern for the Hon. Jennifer H. Henderson of the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Alabama’s Western Division in 2015, where he conducted research on bankruptcy motions in Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 cases and attended bankruptcy hearings. Prior to law school, Said was a global wealth management intern with Merrill Lynch in 2014, where he conducted research on hedge funds, mutual funds and other investment vehicles.

A 2014 summa cum laude graduate of the University of South Alabama with a bachelor’s degree in economics and finance, Said earned a pair of degrees from the University of Alabama School of Law with a J.D. and an LL.M. in taxation, cum laude, in 2017.
