Federal Litigation


When the Stakes are Highest, Experience Counts

Federal court is home to many of the most serious disputes. It is the forum of choice for multimillion dollar contract disputes between global businesses, litigation over intellectual property rights, enforcement proceedings by the SEC and other federal agencies, and prosecutions by the United States Department of Justice. The stakes simply don’t get higher. 

Brooks Pierce lawyers routinely handle these matters, practicing extensively in each of North Carolina’s three federal districts, as well as the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals and the United States Supreme Court, bringing their experience with the federal system to bear on behalf of our client’s interest. Our litigation team includes a number of former law clerks to a number of federal district and appellate judges, as well as lawyers who have worked in federal agencies and the U.S. Department of Justice. Many of them have devoted the majority of their practice to litigating in this high-stakes arena, and know the demands presented by federal litigation.

Our experience includes:

  •        Supreme Court litigation
  •        Appellate litigation
  •        Employment litigation
  •        Trade secret and intellectual property litigation
  •        Securities litigation
  •        Federal criminal defense

Beyond these matters, our lawyers are active in organizations that promote the welfare, interests, education, and professional development of attorneys who regularly practice federal law, including past presidents of the Middle District of North Carolina and Eastern District of North Carolina Chapters of the Federal Bar Association.

We are proud of the work we do in federal court.
