Womble Carlyle Antitrust Lawyers Named to 2015 North Carolina Legal Elite
Business North Carolina magazine has named 14 Womble Carlyle attorneys to the 2015 North Carolina Legal Elite—the magazine’s annual listing of the state's top lawyers.
In addition, Press Millen was this year’s top vote-getter in North Carolina in the Antitrust category and as such, was profiled in Business North Carolina magazine.
The 2015 Legal Elite honorees are:
Cy Johnson, Business
Kurt Lindquist, Litigation
Bill Matthews, Real Estate
Tom Waldrep, Bankruptcy
Jack Hicks, Intellectual Property
Liz Arias, Tax/Estate Planning
Liz Riley, Construction
Nellie Shipley, Raleigh
Andy Copenhaver, Antitrust
Jim Phillips, Antitrust
John Pueschel, Employment Law
George Ragland, Tax/Estate Planning
Kim Stogner, Tax/Estate Planning
In addition, the following Womble Carlyle attorneys are members of the North Carolina Legal Elite Hall of Fame, meaning they received the most votes in the state in their particular practice area. Hall of Fame members are no longer eligible for the annual rankings. They are:
Alfred Adams, Real Estate (Winston-Salem)
Jim Cooney, Criminal Law (Charlotte)
Mark Horoschak, Antitrust (Charlotte)
Betty Quick, Tax/Trusts & Estates (Winston-Salem)
Millen will move into the North Carolina Legal Elite Hall of Fame category next year.
Statewide, 641 lawyers — less than 3% of the total — were picked by their peers in 14 mostly business-related categories. Notices were sent to more than 22,000 active members of the North Carolina State Bar. Voters could not pick themselves, and they could select partners and associates only if they also selected lawyers outside the firm in the same categories.
