Womble Carlyle recently received some good news from a respected regional economic development publication.

The firm has been named one of three “North Carolina’s Best Economic Development Law Firms” by Southern Business & Development magazine. The publication picks the state’s best in a variety of economic development categories, such as “Most Important Employers,” “Best Economic Development Assets” and “Best Innovation Hubs.”

“Rankings such as these not only recognize Womble Carlyle as one of the leading go-to law firms for companies seeking to develop, locate, or expand operations and facilities in our region.  They also help to show that this innovative firm has such a solid platform to provide business advisory services in addition to legal services on economic development projects,” said Rhett Weiss, Managing Director of Womble Carlyle’s Strategic Initiatives Group (SIG). The firm recently launched SIG as a business consulting practice focused on helping companies to identify and secure corporate development opportunities, create or acquire mission-critical facilities like data centers and production plants, and solve business challenges along the way.
