28 Dec Jim White named to 2013 Legal Elite
Jim White was named to the 2013 Business North Carolina Legal Elite for his work with individuals and businesses as debtors in bankruptcy.
Since 2002, Business North Carolina magazine has honored Tar Heel lawyers by publishing Business North Carolina’s Legal Elite, a listing of the state’s top lawyers in business-related categories. Winners are chosen not by BNC editors but by the state’s lawyers. Business North Carolina’s Legal Elite is the only award that gives every active lawyer in the state the opportunity to participate. Business North Carolina’s Legal Elite includes the top lawyers chosen using this statewide ballot.
Each year, BNC sends ballot notices to every member of the N.C. State Bar living in North Carolina — asking each a simple question: Of the Tar Heel lawyers whose work you have observed firsthand, whom would you rate among the current best in these categories
White’s firm uses bankruptcy as a tool to navigate out of financial difficulty, help people stay in their homes, and fight wrongful foreclosures and overreaching creditors. The firm also practices complex litigation including business torts and securities litigation and has pursued lawsuits against and negotiated large settlements with financial institutions.
