Best Lawyers Recognizes 72 Parker Poe Attorneys for 2015

  • August 19, 2014

(CHARLOTTE, N.C.)—Seventy-two Parker Poe attorneys were selected by their peers for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America© 2015. Attorneys from each of the firm’s five offices are represented in the publication’s just-released 21st edition.  

Best Lawyers is based on a peer-review survey in which almost 50,000 leading attorneys cast nearly five million votes on the legal abilities of other lawyers in their practice areas, and because lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed, inclusion is considered a singular honor. Corporate Counsel magazine has called Best Lawyers “the most respected referral list of attorneys in practice.”
