Charlotte, N.C. – Parker Poe Adams & Bernstein LLP is pleased to announce that Charlotte partner Craig Lynch has been named to the 2020 edition of the Irish Legal 100. Craig joins other attorneys, judges, and legal scholars on this year's list, including Supreme Court justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh. Chief Justice John Roberts is a past honoree as well.
The rankings were founded in 2008 by the Irish Voice newspaper in New York, which describes the Irish Legal 100 as a “compilation of the most distinguished legal professionals in the United States who share one common bond: pride in their Irish roots.”
Craig is a leader at Parker Poe, in the commercial real estate industry, and in the community. He is serving his fifth term on the firm’s board of directors. He also brings almost 35 years of legal experience to his commercial real estate practice. He takes ownership of and brings a sense of urgency to his clients’ problems, and he builds trusting relationships by developing pragmatic solutions to obstacles standing in the way of achieving his clients’ goals.
In addition, Craig serves as secretary of the board of trustees for the Florida State University Foundation. He is a past chair of the FSU Alumni Association’s national board of directors and has received its Circle of Gold award, which recognizes individuals who personify the university’s tradition of excellence through their service and achievements. Craig has also volunteered with the National Multiple Sclerosis Society for more than 25 years, is a member of its Volunteer Hall of Fame, and currently serves on the organization’s National Advisory Council. He is a past board member and president of the University of North Carolina School of Law’s Alumni Association as well.
Craig traces his Irish roots to the counties of Cavan, Cork, Donegal, and Longford.
