CHARLOTTE, NC—The American Bar Association has named Womble Bond Dickinson attorney Hunter Edwards to its 2019-21 class of Real Property Fellows. Edwards is one of just five attorneys nationally selected as a member of the new Real Property Fellows class.

Selected by the ABA’s Real Property, Trust and Estate (RPTE) Section, the Fellows Program encourages the active involvement and participation of young lawyers in RPTE Section activities. The goal of the program is to give young lawyers an opportunity to become involved in the substantive work of the RPTE Section, while developing into future leaders.

Real Property Fellows have the opportunity to serve in leadership roles within the ABA, attend key RPTE Section meetings, and participate in substantive projects, such as writing for RPTE Section publications. They also are paired with veteran RPTE attorneys who serve as mentors.

Hunter Edwards’ practice spans a range of commercial real estate sectors, including multifamily developments, mixed-use development projects, industrial and office park developments, condominiums, complex commercial leasing transactions, and energy projects. He is a past chair of the North Carolina Real Estate Lawyers Association of North Carolina.
