Business North Carolina’s Legal Elite is a listing of the state’s top lawyers categorized by practice area chosen through a balloting process which includes all lawyers living in North Carolina. First published in 2002, Business North Carolina’s Legal Elite is the only award of its type that gives every active lawyer in the state the opportunity to participate. The single question ballot asks lawyers to nominate the best lawyer with whom they worked and observed firsthand in each of the categories listed in the Legal Elite. Lawyers are not permitted to list themselves though they can select members of their firm if they also list lawyers outside their firm in the same categories. Within firm selections are given less weight than non-firm selections. The lawyer who receives the most votes in a category becomes a member of Business North Carolina’s Legal Elite Hall of Fame. Business North Carolina’s Legal Elite is published in January each year.
