Brooks Pierce partner Justin Outling has been named one of Black Business Ink magazine’s “40 Under 40 Most Influential African Americans in the Piedmont,” which honors individuals from Forsyth and Guilford counties. A gala honoring the award recipients will be held Feb. 22.
According to Black Business Ink, the “40 Under 40 Most Influential African Americans in the Piedmont” is comprised of outstanding leaders who are confident, ambitious and achievement oriented. These individuals help build their community, seek new challenges at work, are not afraid to question authority and serve as a model for all to emulate. Each awardee was nominated and considered by two selection committees, one in Guilford County and one in Forsyth County.
Outling focuses his practice on business litigation and white-collar criminal defense. He has served as a Greensboro City Councilman since 2015 and was named to the Greensboro News & Record’s “Top 20 People of Influence” in 2017. In 2019, Outling received the North Carolina Bar Association’s (NCBA) Citizen Lawyer Award.
