Ezzell becomes fourth attorney added to office in 2007
WILMINGTON, NC – Smith Moore LLP continues the expansion of its Wilmington office with the addition of its fourth attorney since June. Aimee Ezzell joins the real estate development practice, becoming the 25th attorney overall to join the firm this year.
Michael Lee, a partner in Smith Moore's Wilmington office, says Ezzell's addition reflects fast-changing developments in both the firm and the region. "The rapid growth in the commercial real estate market necessitates that we expand our capacity to serve this region," Lee says. "There are already several major corporations and developers who have, or are looking to, bring their business to this region of the state and beyond. We are increasing our own capabilities in order to position ourselves as an asset to development needs in Wilmington's real estate landscape, as well as across the Southeast."
Ezzell's practice will focus on real estate development and corporate law. She joins Smith Moore after pursuing a varied practice across the country, including a clerkship with the United States Court of Appeals, practice with Keker & Van Nest, LLP in San Francisco, and most recently, practice in the Wilmington office of Fletcher, Ray and Satterfield, LLP. "I'm looking forward to being a part of the Smith Moore team," said Ezzell. "Smith Moore is well known for its real estate capabilities and I'm eager to help continue the growth and success of that practice in Wilmington."
Ezzell is a graduate of Wake Forest University and the Yale Law School. She is a member of the American Bar Association and state bar associations of New York, California and North Carolina.
