Overview

  • Winston’s Charlotte office was launched in January 2008. Through a number of significant lateral hires from Charlotte-area firms, the office has quickly grown to 36 lawyers, including a former Assistant U.S. Attorney for the Western District of North Carolina, and more than two dozen legal personnel. Our litigation practice in North Carolina is national in scope and focused on the representation of financial services and consumer product companies in high-stakes litigation. 
  • ​We represent clients in general commercial, class action, intellectual property, financial services litigation, and white collar criminal and regulatory enforcement matters. 

  • The Charlotte team has achieved a remarkable track record of success for financial institutions in class action/multidistrict litigation, involving consumer, securities, truth-in-lending, and mortgage servicing claims in high-risk jurisdictions across the country.
  • Our Charlotte office is the hub of our firm’s CFPB regulatory practice and home to several attorneys with close ties to the agency.
  • We are also at the forefront of defending food and beverage companies in consumer class actions alleging mislabeling, false advertising, and failure to properly disclose ingredients and additives.
