Sustainability
Parker Poe is committed to the sustainable use and renewal of resources; it is critical to the health of our communities, our clients and our people. We are pursuing certification as an ABA-EPA Climate Challenge Partner, recycling over two tons of paper each month, and limiting our footprint by thoughtful consumption of paper, electricity and chemicals. The Firm has active practices in wind energy and conservation easements and we frequently volunteer for non-profits dedicated to the environment.

International Scope
More than 25 years ago, Parker Poe was the first Charlotte-based firm with a dedicated international practice group. The practice was an outgrowth of our firm’s service to companies based in Germany. Today, our international practice represents clients based across Europe and Asia, as well as in Africa, Australia and South America. The Firm has an established network of international law firms with which it works to serve these clients.
