More than half the firm's lawyers are trial lawyers.  We thrive on novel issues and precedent-setting cases.

​Professional Firms

Our experience representing law and accounting firms is unmatched in our region.  For over 35 years, we have represented both regional and national accounting firms in litigation, governmental investigations, regulatory matters, and bankruptcy proceedings.  Our representations have involved audits, tax matters, and other accounting advisory services.  We have experience with both class action claims and those brought by an individual plaintiff.

​White-collar Criminal Defense

Our white-collar criminal and government investigations team is renowned for tenacious litigation of high-stakes cases.  Our team draws on deep, broad experience on both sides of complex federal prosecutions.  The team of lawyers includes former Assistant U.S. Attorneys.

​North Carolina Business Court

Brooks Pierce attorneys have appeared as counsel of record in more North Carolina Business Court decisions than any other law firm.  We regularly tackle complex, high-stakes business litigation for our clients.  Furthermore, we stay involved with the inner workings of the court; three of our attorneys serve on the Rules Committee for the Business Court.
