Spilman Thomas & Battle, PLLC had its beginnings in 1864, and to better serve our clients in the North Carolina area, the firm opened a Winston-Salem office in 2006. Staffed by more than 200 attorneys and professional staff across our seven offices, Spilman is dedicated to providing top-notch legal services at an exceptional value.
As one of the Mid-Atlantic Inland Basin's largest law firms, we offer a full-service legal practice and are proud of the diversity of our client base — one that includes Fortune 500™ companies with thousands of employees and family-owned businesses that are just around the corner. Our attorneys are trained to serve as an extension of your management team — working with you to prevent problems before they occur and guiding you carefully and efficiently through the legal process.
Our commitment to excellence has been tradition for more than a century and continues to be our guiding force today. One example of this commitment is our continued selection by DuPont as one of its primary law firms. This group of preferred law firms has completed a rigorous process to be one of the few firms selected by DuPont throughout the world. At Spilman, our goal is to be the first choice for all of our clients.
We have a broad general practice that is divided into two main departments — litigation and corporate. Our attorneys and professional support staff typically work in multiple areas of practice, including mergers and acquisitions, labor and employment, banking and finance, intellectual property, toxic tort, product liability, health care, consumer finance, energy, and environmental — to name just a few.
The North Carolina office has a deep litigation group that handles all types of litigation throughout the state, from the coast to the mountains, and frequently manages litigation and trial dockets in South Carolina and Tennessee. They are supported by Spilman's substantial resources firm-wide.
Our corporate department represents clients engaged in a wide variety of industries and business transactions. The firm's business attorneys are skilled in virtually all areas of commercial business practice and are prepared to provide advice in the gamut of corporate law.
