Wilmington location will be Smith Moore’s third office in North Carolina
GREENSBORO – Smith Moore LLP, a law firm with offices in Greensboro, Raleigh, and Atlanta, has opened a new office in Wilmington, NC. Michael Lee, who has practiced in Wilmington for the past five years, will join Smith Moore as a partner and will head the office.
Smith Moore managing partner Steve Earp said, "Michael worked in our Raleigh office early in his career, so we already know that he has great skills. Since he has been in Wilmington, he has built an outstanding reputation as a real estate lawyer, and his practice is booming. We have a very talented team of lawyers who can help Michael handle the work, and that will allow his practice to continue growing." Smith Moore lawyers from the Raleigh and Greensboro offices will assist Michael in both the transactional and litigation practice areas, Earp said.
"In addition," Earp said, "we are studying the market to see whether expanding the Wilmington office would be consistent with our strategy to be a principal competitor in our core practice areas throughout North Carolina and Georgia." These practice areas include litigation, health care, real estate development, general business and labor and employment law.
