This is an excellent opportunity to work with a close-knit team that has a national practice and appears before state and federal courts throughout the firm’s southeastern footprint. The Business Litigation team also has a robust data privacy and security practice.   The applicant must possess exceptional communication skills, research and writing skills, and must be ready and willing to handle matters both independently and as part of a litigation team.

National organizations have recognized Parker Poe attorneys as pre-eminent litigators. Members of our team are among:

           Less than half a percent of all American lawyers invited into the Litigation Counsel of America.

           Less than 1 percent of lawyers invited into the American College of Trial Lawyers in each state.

           Leading litigators in Benchmark Litigation and The Best Lawyers in America based on extensive interviews with in-house counsel and peer review surveys. Clients told Benchmark Litigation that “Parker Poe offers top quality but not for top prices” and that “the firm has an excellent reputation and a proven track record of providing sound legal advice and guidance.”

Our team has successfully handled appeals in all levels of federal and state court systems. We draw on the extensive trial experience our attorneys have gained, as well as the lessons they have learned as law clerks with federal circuit courts and state appellate courts. We handle appeals involving not only cases we have tried but also cases referred to us from other lawyers who seek our level of proficiency.

Our attorneys also are skilled in resolving disputes outside the courtroom. We regularly appear before arbitration panels of the American Arbitration Association (AAA), Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), JAMS, International Chamber of Commerce, and the International Institute for Conflict Prevention and Resolution (CPR). In addition, our attorneys have participated in hundreds of mediations on behalf of clients and are able to draw on the insights of our team members who are themselves trained and experienced mediators.
