Charlotte is the second-largest financial center in the country because of its concentration of financial institutions, insurance companies and private equity funds—making it a natural mainline for our comprehensive financial institutions focus.
The finance and corporate teams are deeply versed in the legal implications of complex and specialty financings and fund formations, acquisitions, divestitures, restructurings, capital markets, tax and regulatory law. The office serves 20 of the 25 largest banks in the U.S. (including the entire top 10), 15 of the largest 25 banks in the world, and many of the leading Charlotte-based private equity funds.
In addition, the office boasts highly experienced Tort and Environmental lawyers who lead trials related to the so-called “Engle Progeny” tobacco cases for R.J. Reynolds, and a Real Estate team that has been recognized as a leading Tier 1 practice for Real Estate Law by U.S. News & World Report.
In 2017, Charlotte was among several King & Spalding offices named in U.S. News & World Report’s Best Law Firms survey, with the firm garnering Tier 1 designations in 21 practice areas.
