Thirty-two Brooks Pierce attorneys have been recognized by their peers for inclusion in the 2023 edition of Business North Carolina’s “Legal Elite” and “Hall of Fame,” a listing of the state’s top lawyers in business-related practice areas.

“We’re proud to be recognized by North Carolina’s business community,” said Reid Phillips, the firm’s managing partner. “By thoroughly understanding the businesses we represent, we can provide the best solutions to our clients’ most complex legal issues.”

Attorneys who receive the most votes in their respective categories become permanent members of the “Legal Elite Hall of Fame.”
