GREENSBORO, NC – Business North Carolina released its annual Legal Elite list this month and nine Womble Bond Dickinson attorneys are included. To create the list each year, the magazine polls every member of the NC State Bar living in the state with one question: “Of the Tar Heel lawyers whose work you have observed firsthand, whom would you rate among the current best in these categories?” 

In addition, each year the highest voted attorney from each category becomes a member of Business North Carolina’s Legal Elite Hall of Fame. Eight Womble Bond Dickinson attorneys now hold that distinction with the addition of this year’s most voted for antitrust attorney, Brian Hayles. Hayles is based in the firm’s Charlotte office. 

Womble Bond Dickinson winners of Business North Carolina’s 2020 Legal Elite are:


  • Brian Hayles (Charlotte)



  • Liz LeVan Riley (Raleigh/Houston)



  • Susan Waller Ramos (Charlotte)
