J. Kellam Warren Among North Carolina’s 2012 Legal Elite

J. Kellam Warren, Managing Member of Mainsail Lawyers, is named by Business North Carolina as one of North Carolina’s 2012 Legal Elite.

A distinction obtained by fewer than 3% of lawyers practicing in North Carolina, Legal Elite winners are chosen not by Business North Carolina 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 mails 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? Voters are not allowed to vote for themselves. They may select members of their firms only if they pick out-of-firm lawyers in the same categories, with the latter votes weighted more heavily. The top vote-getter in each category becomes a member of Business North Carolina’s Legal Elite Hall of Fame and is ineligible to win again.
