Two Nexsen Pruet attorneys, Brian Anderson and John Mabe Jr., have been selected by their peers for inclusion in Business North Carolina's 2020 Legal Elite of North Carolina.
According to the publication, BNC sends ballot notices to every member of the N.C. State Bar living in North Carolina asking each to vote for the attorneys they believe are at the top of their fields. Attorneys can't vote for themselves or for members of the Legal Elite Hall of Fame- previous top vote-getters in a particular speciality. Votes for lawyers from an outside firm are weighed more heavily than votes from inside their own.

Hall of Fame
The top vote-getter in each category becomes a life-long member of the Business North Carolina "Legal Elite" Hall of Fame.
Nexsen Pruet Hall-of-famers include:
Business North Carolina's Methodology
"Since 2002, Business North Carolina Magazine has honored Tar Heel lawyers by publishing Business North Carolina's Legal Elite, a listing of the state's top lawyers in business-related categories. Winners are chose not by BNC editors but by the state's lawyers. Business North Carolina's Legal Elite has become the model for other awards and lists, but remains unique as the only award that gives every active lawyer in the state the opportunity to participate. Business North Carolina's Legal Elite includes the top lawyers chosen using this statewide ballot.
Each year, BNC sends ballot notices to every member of the N.C. State Bar living in North Carolina- asking each a simple question: Of the Tar Heel lawyers whose work you have observed firsthand, whom would you rate among the current best in these categories? Voters are not allowed to vote for themselves. They may select members of their firms only if they pick out-of-firm lawyers in the same categories, with the latter votes weighted more heavily. The top vote-getter in each category becomes a member of Business North Carolina's Legal Elite Hall of Fame and is ineligible to win again."
