May 5, 2016 (WINSTON-SALEM, NC) The Forrest Firm, P.C., a North Carolina B-Corp certified law firm focused on helping entrepreneurs and executives achieve sustainable growth, has opened its first Triad office, which will be located in downtown Winston-Salem.
The Forrest Firm’s expansion into the Triad will help the firm better serve its existing clients in central and western North Carolina and be a local resource for businesses and non-profits needing corporate legal counsel.
“We’re very excited to increase our firm’s accessibility across North Carolina,” said firm founder and lead attorney James Forrest. “We will be bringing a full slate of corporate legal services to bear for Triad business executives. The Forrest Firm adheres to market-pioneering standards of responsiveness, predictable pricing, and accessibility, and we expect that the growing number of entrepreneurs in this region will appreciate our dedication to client service.”
Jeff Wolfe will spearhead the opening of the Winston-Salem office and will assist clients in Winston-Salem, Greensboro, High Point, and surrounding communities, as well as continuing to serve clients in the Triangle. Mr. Wolfe joined the Forrest Firm in early 2014 after practicing as a corporate attorney for six years at Raleigh’s Smith, Anderson, Blount, Dorsett, Mitchell & Jernigan. Mr. Wolfe’s areas of practice include entity formation and governance, commercial contracts, and strategic transactions, and his transactional background includes deep experience in equity offerings, debt financing, and mergers and acquisitions.
As part of the firm’s commitment to economic and community development in the communities it serves, the firm also announced a sponsorship of Flywheel, an innovation community located in the Wake Forest Innovation Quarter. As part of Flywheel’s Entrepreneur & Innovation Leadership Circle, the Forrest Firm will support the resources Flywheel provides to entrepreneurs, innovators, and community leaders.
“Flywheel is generating a lot of buzz—and rightfully so—for building a collaborative environment for startups,” said Wolfe. “We have seen firsthand the impact similar hubs have had in the Triangle, and we know results are seen when organizations like Flywheel invest in the startup ecosystem. The Forrest Firm’s role in this ecosystem is to provide flexible, responsive services to our clients in a true collaboration with transparent, predictable billing arrangements.”
Jeff Wolfe will be on-site at Flywheel two days a week to be accessible to the Flywheel community and clients and friends of the firm.
