North Carolina Lawyers Weekly has named Smith Anderson the state’s seventh largest law firm out of 40 firms included in the list.
With 139 attorneys, Smith Anderson is the largest North Carolina law firm on the list that is headquartered in the Research Triangle area of North Carolina. Smith Anderson maintained its spot at seventh place, according to the article.
The article also reported that of the 32 firms returning from last year’s list, 15 reported growth over the past year, while 13 firms reported a reduction in number of lawyers. Overall, North Carolina law firms have weathered the novel coronavirus storm, and the legal profession appears to have withstood its challenges and is healthy.
The North Carolina’s Largest Law firms list is based on an annual survey of the self-reported number of North Carolina licensed lawyers practicing in firms across the state and reflects headcounts as of January 1, 2021. The information was gathered over the past month, using email and digital survey questions to put together an up-to-date list from information from all the firms that appeared in the 2020 survey and others who wanted to submit data about their firm.
