The publications, North Carolina Lawyers Weekly and South Carolina Lawyers Weekly, have identified Parker Poe as a growth leader among law firms in each of the respective states. The firm was heralded previously by the National Law Journal as one of the fastest growing firms in the United States in its annual NLJ 250 survey.
Parker Poe is now the third largest firm in the state of North Carolina with more than 200 attorneys. It rose from fourth place on the 2006 North Carolina Lawyers Weekly survey with an increase in headcount of 17.4%.
The firm grew by 46.7% and made a significant jump from 18th to 11th place in South Carolina. South Carolina Lawyers Weekly named Parker Poe as the “biggest percentage gainer… which roughly doubled the number of lawyers in its South Carolina offices.”
Parker Poe’s growth has continued into 2007 with new lateral attorneys added to several practices including litigation, employee benefits, intellectual property and public finance. In addition, the firm is poised to welcome its largest fall class with 18 new associates joining the Charlotte, Raleigh, Charleston and Columbia offices in September.
Parker Poe Adams & Bernstein LLP currently has more than 200 lawyers in six offices across the Carolinas including Charlotte, Raleigh, Charleston, Columbia, Myrtle Beach and Spartanburg. The firm provides a complete range of legal services and counsels domestic and international companies in antitrust and business disputes, banking and finance, bankruptcy, reorganization and creditors’ rights, commercial litigation, corporate and commercial law, employee benefits, employment, environmental, government and public policy, health care, immigration, intellectual property, international, mergers and acquisitions, public finance, real estate and commercial development, securities, tax, torts, trials and insurance. www.parkerpoe.com.
