Asheville, North Carolina, known alternatively as the Land of the Sky and Beer City USA, is the economic hub of North Carolina’s western mountain region. A tourist mecca for over 100 years, Asheville is located in a valley of the Blue Ridge Mountains and home to the iconic Biltmore House and Grove Park Inn. After a downtown revitalization project that began in the 1990s, the city’s economy has diversified from its original bases of tourism and retail to adventure equipment companies (hammocks, kayaks) and dozens of breweries along the French Broad River.
The Forrest Firm’s newest office opened in Asheville in the summer of 2018. The Asheville office is located in The Collider, a nonprofit innovation center focused on catalyzing market-driven climate solutions. As part of our B Corp mission to serve communities across North Carolina, we chose The Collider for its collaborative approach to stimulating another cornerstone of the mountain economy: climate products and services.
From our Asheville office, the Forrest Firm offers a full complement of legal services for business, including entity formation, corporate governance, mergers and acquisitions, financings and capital raises, contract negotiation, commercial real estate, employment law, intellectual property, and litigation. In addition, we offer estate planning and administration services to help our clients plan for the future of their families and their businesses.
