FORREST NAMED TO BUSINESS NORTH CAROLINA MAGAZINE’S “LEGAL ELITE”

Business North Carolina has named James R. Forrest, founder and principal of the Forrest Firm in Durham, North Carolina, to its 2012 listings of the state’s “Legal Elite.”

For its annual ranking of the best practicing lawyers in North Carolina, Business North Carolina surveyed over 20,000 attorneys across the Tar Heel State.  At the conclusion of the survey, the magazine’s editors selected about three percent of the state’s attorneys for inclusion in the rankings.

According to Business North Carolina magazine, the “Legal Elite” represents “the lawyers their peers think are the best practitioners in their respective fields.”  The magazine places a premium on listing the best attorneys—not the best-known or most influential—as a measurement of their legal expertise and proficiency in the law.

The Legal Elite will feature in this month’s edition of Business North Carolina magazine.
