Practice/Organization Description

Brooks, Pierce, McLendon, Humphrey & Leonard, LLP is a comprehensive business law firm providing strategic counsel and innovative solutions to businesses, individuals, government and non-profit institutions. Since our firm's beginning in 1897, we have grown to over 90 lawyers and serve clients from three offices (Greensboro, Raliegh and Wilmington, NC).

The firm's experience extends to every aspect of business law, including antitrust, mergers and acquisitions, start-up and publicly traded companies, banking, corporate finance, labor, securities, environmental, real estate, trade associations, education, foundations, public utilities, employee benefits, legislative, media, regulatory compliance, complex business litigation, and trusts and estates. Members of our firm regularly represent clients before the judicial, executive and legislative branches of government.

To broaden the scope and quality of the advice and assistance we provide to clients, we also have attorneys who devote substantial time to public service. These attorneys include political campaign managers, military officers, regulatory commissioners, law professors, accounting professors, and a former chief justice of the North Carolina Supreme Court.

Only lawyers with a demonstrated record of professional excellence and the highest standards of personal integrity become part of our firm. Our attorneys demonstrate intelligence, integrity, leadership, a demonstrated record of professional excellence, and a commitment to the law as a profession and a calling. Our attorneys have excelled in the nation's leading law schools, including Duke, Georgetown, Harvard, Stanford, UCLA, University of Chicago, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, University of Virginia, University of Texas, Wake Forest, Washington and Lee, William and Mary, and Yale.

Brooks Pierce differs from many firms of comparable size in that it has no formal departments or practice groups. Our firm has a long-standing philosophy: encourage young lawyers to explore different practice areas, experience different aspects of the law, and eventually narrow their practice focus as they become more experienced. Our atmosphere is collaborative and collegial; our attorneys work closely with one another and exchange ideas on legal issues and complex matters, thus maximizing the scope and quality of the service provided to our clients.
