Brooks Pierce Sponsors NC TECH Awards Gala
Brooks Pierce is proud to sponsor the NC TECH Association’s Awards Gala on Nov. 29 at the Raleigh Convention Center.
With over 600 members, NC TECH is the statewide trade association for technology companies. Its annual Awards Gala is a statewide celebration of the North Carolina tech economy. Awards to be presented at the gala include the Technology Corporate Award, which recognizes technology companies for innovation, excellence and growth and the Use of Technology Awards, which recognizes companies, organizations, institutions and/or collaborations for their use of technology.
Brooks Pierce is a long-time member of NC TECH, and our attorneys represent a number of the state’s leading technology companies. Partner Ed Turlington has served as State Government Counsel to NC TECH since 2005 and, along with colleague Drew Moretz, advocates for the industry before the legislative and executive branches. These efforts include supporting funding for broadband internet in schools and businesses, working to improve technology procurement laws and helping write a state law to discourage litigation abuse by patent trolls.
