Raleigh Office Update

A law office for the 21st Century

We’re moving.

After 18 years in the Wells Fargo Capitol Center, the Raleigh Office of Parker Poe is moving into the PNC Plaza. We should be in our new location in December.

The move has been in the works for some time. But rather than just making some carpet and paint changes, assigning corner offices and cubicles and picking up our desks and files and moving them down Fayetteville Street, we decided it was time for a law firm to do something different. Really different.

So that’s what we’re doing.

In June of 2013, our attorneys, paralegals and other staff members began a collaborative effort with design firm Gensler to come up with a law office for the 21st Century. A year later, the demolition and construction process on our new space has begun.

The result of that collaboration? An office that is light and bright and modern, with an emphasis on openness and glass. There are no corner offices, only collaborative spaces for our various practice areas. We’ve swapped old paintings for sleek new high-definition flat screens. Outdated break rooms have been replaced with an irresistible café area featuring tables, booths and bar seating.

And wait until you see the views.

There’s more, of course. To see it all, we invite you to follow along by checking back here regularly for updates.

 


 

Raleigh Market Overview

Parker Poe's Raleigh office is located in the heart of the state's political, educational and scientific activity. Raleigh and the cities of Durham and Chapel Hill make up the world-class business and research center, the Research Triangle. Home to one of the world's largest research parks and three major universities – Duke University, North Carolina State University, and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill – the Research Triangle has been one of the fastest growing areas in the country with more than one million residents from all over the world.

This area's economy consistently ranks among the best in the nation due in large part to multinational pharmaceutical, computer software, telecommunications and biotechnology companies that blend with rapidly growing, technology-driven entrepreneurial companies. Parker Poe is pleased to include many of these outstanding companies, universities and governmental agencies among our clients in Raleigh.

The thriving business community, bolstered by the political activity of the state capital in Raleigh, has solidified the Triangle's placement on many national business magazine lists as one of the best places to live and do business in the United States.

Local Attractions

The Triangle offers its residents many cultural opportunities, including theaters, galleries, dance and musical events, as well as extensive parks, greenways and public athletic facilities. It is home to the North Carolina Symphony as well as three major universities, all of which offer spirited athletic events. The Carolina Hurricanes, the region's only NHL franchise, won the state's first major professional title in the battle for the 2006 Stanley Cup.

In addition to the many attractions in the Triangle, its central location offers residents access to the Blue Ridge Mountains and the beautiful coastline of the Carolinas.

Community Involvement

Our attorneys are active in civic affairs, both volunteer and elective throughout the greater Triangle area. Since 2001, Charles Meeker has served as the Mayor of the City of Raleigh and was elected to his fifth two-year term as Mayor in October 2009. Russell Killen was elected to serve as Mayor of Knightdale in the most recent election. In addition, the Raleigh office received the 2007 Pinnacle Business Award from the Greater Raleigh Chamber of Commerce. A Chamber executive noted, “The firms and its individuals continue to give back to the community year after year and that sets Parker Poe apart.”
