WILMINGTON, N.C., — Colin J. Tarrant from the Wilmington office of Smith Moore Leatherwood, was recently selected to the 2013 class of the North Carolina Bar Association Leadership Academy.
The Leadership Academy was designed to help young attorneys become effective leaders in their communities. Only 16 attorneys from across the state are selected for the program each year.
"It's an honor for Colin and for us," said David Martin, managing partner of the firm's Wilmington office. "His innate leadership ability makes him a natural choice for the Academy."
Tarrant is a member of the firm’s litigation practice group. His practice focuses on commercial litigation, including real estate and land use/zoning actions, title insurance claims, contract and insurance disputes, banking and foreclosure actions, landlord-tenant matters, and product liability cases.
Tarrant received his law degree from New England School of Law (J.D., 2006) where he was a two-year member of the school's Phillip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition team.
