Founded in 1957, our Charlotte office is located in a major financial, distribution, and transportation hub, which is the second largest banking center, one of the fastest growing cities, and one of best places for business in the United States.

It provides global, integrated resources to local, national, and international companies with key practice areas in corporate and transactional, banking and asset finance, employee benefits, litigation, real estate, and tax. Our office and lawyers are consistently recognized by U.S. News Best Lawyers® and Chambers USA.

Our corporate lawyers have sophisticated merger and acquisition, private equity, mezzanine finance, securities, and capital markets practices. They regularly guide clients buying and selling businesses in a wide range of transactions, from sales of family businesses to mergers involving public companies. Our private equity and mezzanine finance practice is one of the most active in the Southeast, serving firms and funds based throughout the United States. Our securities lawyers represent public companies in a broad range of capital market transactions as well as in periodic reporting and corporate governance matters.

Our banking and asset finance lawyers represent CMBS mortgage portfolio servicers, master servicers, trustees, and borrowers in a variety of financing transactions and routinely represent banks, investment funds, and private equity firms in loan portfolio acquisitions and workouts. Our lawyers also represent regional, national, and international bank and non-bank lenders and borrowers in variety of debt finance matters, including senior secured and unsecured syndicated and bilateral credit facilities and asset-based loans for dividend recapitalizations, leveraged buyouts, and working capital needs.

Our employee benefits lawyers help large employers design, document, and administer all types of qualified and non-qualified retirement plans; deferred compensation plans; incentive and equity compensation plans; and medical, disability, and severance plans. They provide advice in connection with mergers and acquisitions, executive agreements, IRS, DOL, PBGC, SEC, and CMS regulatory matters as well as ERISA matters. Our lawyers also work with companies to freeze or terminate defined benefit plans and implement consumer-driven health care plans.

Our litigators handle complex and class action litigation and have successfully represented clients in products liability, financial services, ERISA, securities, lender liability, construction, and environmental litigation.

Our real estate lawyers represent clients in all areas of the industry, including development, finance, leasing, joint ventures, public-private developments, environmental, and land use, as well as acquisitions, equity investments, and mixed-use/planned development matters. Our environmental lawyers analyze the risks of developing and leasing particular sites and provide advice on a range of environmental issues.
