Brooks Pierce partner Jennifer Van Zant has been recognized in the 2016 Benchmark Litigation's Top 250 Women in Litigation. This is the second consecutive year she has been named to the list.
"Brooks Pierce is known for its ability to handle complex and potentially precedent-setting cases. Jennifer has proved over and over again that she is at the forefront of that practice," said Reid Phillips, the firm's managing partner. "She is no doubt one of the best litigators and trial lawyers in our region, and we are very proud that her great work on behalf of our clients has been recognized by Benchmark Litigation."
The Top 250 Women in Litigation is dedicated to honoring the accomplishments of America's leading female trial lawyers and features female litigators from all 50 states and the District of Columbia. Attorneys are nominated based on extensive client and peer reviews.
"I am honored to be recognized by my clients and peers as a leader in litigation, not just locally, but among women nationwide," said Van Zant. "I enjoy my work, and constantly strive to get the best results for my clients. I think this honor is reflective of that commitment."
A partner in the firm’s Greensboro office, Van Zant represents businesses on a wide range of disputes before federal courts and the North Carolina Business Court, and works closely with clients to find paths toward resolution. She has been widely recognized by her clients and peers for her success in litigation, and has been included in The Best Lawyers in America and Chambers USA: American’s Leading Lawyers for Business. Van Zant also recently chaired the local rules committee for the North Carolina Business Court.
