While we have a strong summer program at Brooks Pierce, we do not hire exclusively from our summer associate pool. We look for qualified lateral candidates.

We welcome the applications of lateral candidates with exceptional experience and a dedication to private practice and to making a home in North Carolina.  

At Brooks Pierce, we value the contributions of our lateral attorneys and the depth, breadth and diversity their varied backgrounds, insights and perspectives bring to our community.
Our lateral attorneys have added significant professional and business talents to our firm, including former state legislators, investment bankers, entrepreneurs, CPAs, political campaign managers, military officers, high-ranking government officials and academics.

When considering lateral candidates, our decisions weigh heavily on factors such as character, educational background, employment history, and professional recommendations.
