Business North Carolina magazine has named nine Womble Bond Dickinson attorneys to the 2022 North Carolina Legal Elite—the magazine’s annual listing of the state's top lawyers. 

The 2022 NC Legal Elite honorees are:

  • Scott Bowers, Corporate
  • Jennifer Cory, Immigration

  • Larry Moye, Tax & Estate Planning
  • Toni Peck, Young Guns

The following Womble Bond Dickinson lawyers and alumni are members of the North Carolina Legal Elite Hall of Fame, meaning they received the most votes in the state in their particular practice area. Hall of Fame members are no longer eligible for the annual rankings:

  • Alfred Adams, Real Estate
  • Liz Arias, Tax & Estate Planning
  • James Cooney, Criminal
  • Susan Cooper, Environmental
  • Andy Copenhaver, Antitrust
  • Mark Horoschak, Antitrust
  • Charlie Livermon, Bankruptcy
  • Press Millen, Antitrust
  • Elizabeth Quick, Tax & Estate Planning

Each year, Business North Carolina sends ballot notices to every member of the N.C. State Bar living in North Carolina — asking each a simple question: Of the Tar Heel lawyers whose work you have observed firsthand, whom would you rate among the current best in these categories? Voters are not allowed to vote for themselves. They may select members of their firms only if they pick out-of-firm lawyers in the same categories, with the latter votes weighted more heavily.
