GREENSBORO, N.C. – Carruthers & Roth, P.A. is pleased to announce that seven of the firm’s attorneys have been recognized for their professional excellence and selected by their peers for inclusion in Business North Carolina magazine’s 2015 “Legal Elite,” an annual listing of the state’s top lawyers in business-related categories.

To compile the fourteenth edition of Business North Carolina’s “Legal Elite,” the magazine distributed nomination ballots to more than 22,000 active members of the North Carolina State Bar. The honorees – who make up less than 3% of the state’s lawyers – were picked by their peers in 15 practice areas.

Michael J. Allen: Intellectual Property

Kenneth M. Greene: Business

J. Patrick Haywood: Construction

Kenneth R. Keller: Employment

Norman F. Klick, Jr.: Litigation

Christopher J. Vaughn: Real Estate

Keith A. Wood: Tax/Estate Planning

In addition, Carruthers & Roth attorney Kenneth M. Greene is a lifetime honoree of “Legal Elite.”  In 2012, he received the most votes of any attorney in the Bankruptcy Law category and became a member of Business North Carolina’s “Legal Elite” Hall of Fame.
