The North Carolina Bar Association (NCBA) Board of Governors recently elected Reid Phillips, managing partner of Brooks Pierce, to a two-year term as vice president.
Founded in 1899, the NCBA is a voluntary organization of lawyers, paralegals and law students dedicated to serving the public and the legal profession. It is led by the Board of Governors, which provides leadership and governance to the NCBA while also serving as the North Carolina Bar Foundation Board of Directors. Phillips is one of five attorneys elected to serve as vice president starting in 2019.
Phillips has been practicing law for more than 40 years, with a focus on litigation, primarily for large companies facing complex business disputes. He was named managing partner of Brooks Pierce in 2016. An active member of the local community, Phillips has served as chairman of the Community Foundation of Greater Greensboro and also served as the chairman of the LeBauer Park steering committee. Last year he was awarded Leadership Greensboro’s Denise E. Maleska Leadership Service Award and the Greensboro Bar Association’s Distinguished Service Award. In 2017, North Carolina Lawyers Weekly named him one of its “Leaders in the Law.”
