Corporate Law

I work primarily with Ms. Libby Brewington at Brooks, Pierce, McLendon, Humphrey & Leonard. Libby is perfect for our firms' needs. We invest in small businesses, and her combination of technical skill and calm, easygoing demeanor fits very well with the principals in our portfolio companies and their attorneys. She doesn't waste time or money negotiating minor points. She is very mindful of costs, which is highly appreciated by our clients. Perhaps the best compliment I can share is that our clients and their attorneys like to work with Libby.

Commercial Litigation

Our contacts at Brooks Pierce continued to impress us with each meeting we had with their group. This was an uphill battle that our company had been fighting for years, and Brooks Pierce finally allowed us to feel like we could breathe again. Mark J. Prat and Craig Schauer are two of the most brilliant lawyers that I have ever met. They have an amazing team and support staff at Brooks-Pierce, which allows you to know that they can meet any need you have. In the past we felt that we were losing the ability to defend ourselves, and we were unsure of the proper legal avenue for our company. Brooks Pierce laid out short and long term plans that finally made us feel safe again. It is such an emotional relief to see a path that no one had been able to show you before, and to truly feel trust in it. We felt strong again. We had such a short time frame to seek protection, and I amazed after reading the initial lawsuit paperwork prepared by Brooks Pierce. Our case was very complicated, and I would say very unique. We were protecting our rights. The documents they prepared were masterfully written. When I read the lawsuit, I never had a doubt. When they stepped into the courtroom, I never had a doubt. They were so precise and calculated in every word. Trust in a private meeting is one thing, but their presence in the courtroom filled us with an entirely different feeling. Our company prides itself on being experts in our field and watching Brooks-Pierce in action fills you with so much respect for them as professionals. Mark J. Prat and Craig Schauer are experts in their field. They are supported by experts in every field you can imagine. When you are working against the clock in such a unique situation, this is the only firm that I would trust. They have won several victories for our company because of their brilliance, protected our right to do business in a free market, and enabled so much growth in our own company.

Stan Gregory Gregory Enterprises

Environmental Law

With respect to Brooks, Pierce, McLendon, Humphrey & Leonard, please note that I worked for the firm “many” years ago (1975 – 1981) before my career led me to corporate practice with a variety of corporate entities. In my almost 45 years of practice, I have worked with law firms not only in the United States but also in various parts of Europe, South America and Asia. There are many fine firms and lawyers throughout the world, as I am sure that you know. From personal experience, I have found the attorneys at Brooks Pierce to be equal to the best firms in any jurisdiction (and at billing levels that are dramatically superior). While there are several stellar attorneys with Brooks Pierce, the following individuals have been especially outstanding in the work that they have done for us: Mark Davidson (Corporate; Securities); George House (Environment; Environmental Litigation); James Adams (Litigation); Bill McNairy and Howard Williams (Tax). With great regret, one great member of the firm, James T. Williams, Jr., who provided wonderful counsel passed away last year.
