Six attorneys included in Business North Carolina Listing 

Six Cranfill Sumner & Hartzog LLP (Cranfill Sumner) attorneys in its Raleigh and Wilmington offices were recognized by Business North Carolina magazine as part of the magazine’s Legal Elite program. Business North Carolina magazine has honored North Carolina lawyers by publishing Business North Carolina’s Legal Elite, a listing of the state’s top lawyers in business related categories, since 2002.

The following attorneys were recognized as Business North Carolina’s Legal Elite 2014 winners in the respective offices and practice areas:

Raleigh Office


Wilmington Office

Voting for the 2014 Business North Carolina’s Legal Elite was conducted online from June 30 to August 1, 2013. Winners are chosen by their fellow North Carolina lawyers from a statewide ballot. The ballot is distributed through the North Carolina State Bar and asks attorneys living in North Carolina one question – “Of the Tar Heel lawyers whose work you have observed firsthand, whom would you rate among the current best in these categories?” The attorney with the most votes in each category becomes a member of Business North Carolina’s Legal Elite Hall of Fame and is ineligible to win again. The complete list of 2014 winners appears in the January 2014 issue of Business North Carolina.
