Charlotte, NC – Parker Poe’s North Carolina litigation practice was listed as “highly recommended” in the most recent annual edition of Benchmark Litigation, its highest rating. The 2016 guide is a publication of Euromoney/Legal Media Group focused exclusively on leading U.S. litigation firms and lawyers.
