Womble Bond Dickinson announced today that Cynthia Spieth Morton has rejoined the firm as a partner based in the Charleston, S.C., office.

In practice for over twenty years, Morton advises clients on commercial real estate acquisitions and development matters. As counsel for lenders, owners, and developers, she has been involved in many multi-million dollar residential and office developments in South Carolina, both as lead counsel and local counsel for out-of-state lenders and borrowers. 

“We are excited to welcome Cynthia back to Womble,” said Charleston Office Managing Partner Cordes Ford. “She will be instrumental as we continue to build on the firm’s outstanding reputation for real estate work in the Charleston market.” 

Morton has been recognized by The Best Lawyers in America in the fields of Real Estate Law, Banking and Finance Law, Commercial Finance Law, and Corporate Law every year since 2013. She was also recognized in Charleston Business Magazine’s Legal Elite for her Commercial Real Estate work.

The addition of Morton continues Womble’s strong lateral growth across its U.S.-based footprint. Over the last 12 months, the firm has welcomed more than two dozen partners, including new Business Litigation partners Jed Nosal and Angel Taveras in Boston; Global Business partners Alan Enslen, Josh Mullen, and John Scannapieco in Washington, D.C., and Wilka Toppins and José Luis Vittor in Houston; IP Litigation partners Steve Levitan and Fabio Marino in Silicon Valley; Patent Litigation attorneys Sam Campbell and Eric Stephenson in Houston; and White Collar and Investigations partners Britt Biles and Luke Cass in Washington, D.C., and Joe Whitley in Atlanta.
