Sixteen Brooks Pierce attorneys have been recognized by their peers for inclusion in the 2015 edition of Business North Carolina’s “Legal Elite,” a listing of the state’s top lawyers in business-related categories. In addition, Brooks Pierce partner Charles Baldwin was inducted into the “Legal Elite” Hall of Fame, becoming the fifth Brooks Pierce attorney to be selected for inclusion in this group.

Business North Carolina is the state’s leading business magazine. Each year, the publication sends ballots to members of the North Carolina Bar Association who live in North Carolina. Voters are asked one question: “Of the Tar Heel lawyers whose work you have observed firsthand, whom would you rate among the current best in these categories?” Voters are not allowed to vote for themselves, and may only select members of their own firms if they also select out-of-firm lawyers in the same categories, with the out-of-firm votes weighted more heavily. Attorneys receiving the most votes in their respective categories become permanent members of the “Legal Elite” Hall of Fame.

The Brooks Pierce attorneys named to Business North Carolina’s 2015 “Legal Elite” are:

Marc Bishop for Business

Arty Bolick for Construction

Wes Camden for Criminal Law

John Cross for Business

Kearns Davis for Criminal Law

Anna McLamb for Real Estate

Jeff Oleynik for Antitrust and Bankruptcy

Bill Ross for Environmental

David Sar for Intellectual Property

John Small for Bankruptcy

Adam Tarleton for Tax/Estate Planning

Walt Tippett for Construction
