Womble Carlyle has enjoyed a more than six decade relationship with the National Conference for Community and Justice of the Piedmont Triad Inc. (NCCJ). That relationship continues in 2016 with Womble Carlyle attorney Kristina Schwartz being appointed to NCCJ’s Board of Directors.

Founded in 1927, the NCCJ is “a human relations organization that promotes inclusion and acceptance by providing education and advocacy while building communities that are respectful and just for all.” The organization’s programs include interfaith study groups, anti-bullying training, inclusion-focused workplace initiatives and ANYTOWN, a popular summer residential program for high school students.

Womble Carlyle’s involvement with NCCJ began in 1951, when attorney Irving Carlyle joined the Board of Directors. More recently, Womble Carlyle attorney Jack Hicks served a term on the NCCJ Board, and the firm has sponsored and participated in the organization’s annual Brotherhood/Sisterhood Citation Award Dinner.

Kristina Schwartz advises companies of various market capitalizations and industries in corporate and commercial transactions and general business matters.  Her practice focuses on domestic and international mergers and acquisitions, financings, private placements and commercial contracts. She practices in Womble Carlyle’s Greensboro, N.C. office.
