Business North Carolina Publishes Article on Brooks Pierce’s White Collar Defense and Investigations Practice


In an article published in Business North Carolina featuring Brooks Pierce’s White Collar Defense and Investigations Practice, Kearns Davis, partner and founder of the team, said the practice has expanded as North Carolina’s profile as a business hub has risen and federal oversight has tightened.

The article emphasizes the firm’s high-profile, successful representations of a former U.S. Congressman and a college volleyball coach in the Varsity Blues case.

The article also spotlights Brooks Pierce attorneys who practice as part of the white-collar team, including:

  • Daniel Adams worked as a public defender in the Bronx and in the white-collar practice of a global firm in New York before returning to North Carolina and joining Brooks Pierce in 2016.
  • Shana Fulton spent a dozen years at the U.S. Attorney’s Office in the District of Columbia, including stints as a deputy chief in the felony major crimes and general crimes sections.
  • Justin Outling was a clerk for a federal judge and worked at a large Wall Street law firm before joining Brooks Pierce in 2012. He served on the Greensboro City Council from 2015 to 2022.
  • Tanisha Palvia is a former assistant district attorney in Manhattan who works mostly remotely from Charlotte, having joined the firm in 2019.
  • Ed West has worked on IRS cases and other investigations in North Carolina for more than 25 years.

“I’m very proud of what we’ve done here with a terrific group of lawyers who have practiced both here in North Carolina and those who have worked in large cities and come back here,” Davis said.
