Top 25 law firms in NC
North Carolina Lawyers Weekly
April 14, 2014
The April 11th edition of North Carolina Lawyers Weekly features the Tarheel state's top 25 law firms according to a survey as of January 1.
According to the report, "more than half of the firms surveyed have either gotten smaller or remained the same size over the past 12 months." Nexsen Pruet was one of the exceptions.
"By comparison, Nexsen Pruet, the 2013 survey’s growth leader, grew from 55 to 66 attorneys — an increase of 20 percent — in 2012. Since the 2013 survey, Nexsen Pruet has added two lawyers for a 3 percent growth rate. Nexsen Pruet was the 17th largest firm in both the 2013 and 2014 surveys.
Many law firms attribute their growth or decline in attorney numbers to the requirements of their clients. John Sowards, Board Chairman of Nexsen Pruet, said the firm has added to its white-collar criminal defense practice as well as its practices in health care, litigation, bankruptcy, and taxation law."
Nexsen Pruet, LLC is one of the largest law firms in the Carolinas, with more than 190 attorneys and offices in Columbia, Charleston, Greenville, Hilton Head, and Myrtle Beach, S.C. as well as Charlotte, Greensboro, and Raleigh, N.C. Founded in 1945, Nexsen Pruet provides a broad range of legal services to the business community and represents companies and other entities in local, state, national, and international venues.
