Jonathan Heyl to lead Antitrust and Trade Regulation Section
Charlotte attorney Jonathan P. Heyl has been elected chair of the North Carolina Bar Association Antitrust and Trade Regulation Section. Heyl, who will serve a one-year term as chair, has been actively involved in the section leadership since 2003 as he has served as secretary, treasurer, pro bono chair, and vice chair.
"Jon is one of Smith Moore's outstanding young litigation attorneys and we are pleased that his leadership abilities continue to be recognized by the Bar," says Smith Moore partner Larry Sitton. "While this position is the latest in a successful line of significant leadership roles Jon has held with the NC Bar, he's also built an excellent reputation as an attorney in the area of antitrust and trade regulation. The total of his efforts will be highly beneficial to Smith Moore's clients."
A member of Smith Moore's litigation practice group in its Charlotte office, Heyl will lead the section's efforts, which focus on the analysis of contemporary issues in state and federal trade regulation law, provision of continuing legal education on antitrust and trade regulation issues, and pro bono work. At Smith Moore, Heyl focuses his civil litigation practice on commercial matters and he has participated in the representation of a number of large banking, professional, insurance and corporate clients in state and federal court in North Carolina and other jurisdictions. Heyl is a graduate of East Carolina University and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Law.
