For 25 years, Wilson & Helms has provided exceptional and efficient legal services, which has helped it become one of the preeminent litigation firms of any size in North Carolina.

Four attorneys from a large regional firm started Wilson & Helms in April 1992. The firm's guiding principle since its founding has been to provide exceptional legal services more efficiently than a large firm. The attorneys at Wilson & Helms enjoy the challenge of delivering on this principle as well as the stimulation of practicing with a select group of highly accomplished attorneys. After handling hundreds of cases, Wilson & Helms has earned its reputation as one of the preeminent litigation firms of any size in the state.

While the firm historically focuses on professional liability defense, insurance defense and business litigation, its attorneys have experience litigating all types of cases, including construction defects, shareholder suits, employment and contract disputes, workers compensation defense, and arbitrations. Regardless of the subject matter being litigated, the attorneys at Wilson & Helms have the practical experience and intellect to develop and implement effective litigation and trial strategy.

Looking to the future, Wilson & Helms understands that litigation clients want to pay for advocacy—not overhead. The firm also understands the growing demand for alternative billing arrangements and can work with clients who request them. Finally, the unique position Wilson & Helms enjoys as a preeminent litigation boutique will allow it to continue providing exceptional value to clients in the years ahead.
