Kirk Warner Appointed to Chief Justice’s Commission on Professionalism
North Carolina Supreme Court Chief Justice Paul Newby has appointed Kirk Warner an honorary and ex officio member of The North Carolina Chief Justice’s Commission on Professionalism (CJCP).
The CJCP is composed of members appointed by the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of North Carolina and represents four constituencies: appellate and trial judges, law faculty, practicing lawyers and the public. It is chaired by the chief justice and is administered by a full-time executive director.
CJCP’s mission is to foster professionalism within the North Carolina legal community through creation, organization and participation in a wide variety of activities and programs designed to fulfill its charge: to enhance professionalism among North Carolina lawyers, judges and law students. It accomplishes this by supporting and engaging in activities throughout North Carolina and the United States that promote appropriate behavior required by all North Carolina lawyers in the Rules of Professional Conduct, respect for others and a commitment to the values underpinning the rule of law and administration of justice.
Kirk is a lead trial lawyer focusing much of his practice on complex and challenging product liability and commercial bet-the-company litigation. Kirk leads the firm’s Products Liability, Mass Tort and Catastrophic Loss, Asbestos and Toxic Torts and Pharmaceutical and Medical Device Litigation practice groups and is a senior litigator in the firm’s Commercial Litigation, Complex Contract Disputes and Construction Litigation teams with trial experience spanning across many litigation areas.
