PRESS RELEASE: January 11th, 2019

Asheville, N.C. – The Van Winkle Law Firm announced today that attorney Anderson T. Ellis has been recognized as one of Business North Carolina magazine’s 2019 Legal Elite. Ellis was honored in both the “Young Guns” and “Business” categories.

Ellis is a member of The Van Winkle Law Firm’s business practice, where he works with small and mid-size businesses on all phases of corporate life, including entity choice, formation, operations, sale/purchase and reorganizations. With a background in litigation, Anderson is adept at handling a variety of issues that may arise for all types of businesses.

“The firm congratulates Anderson on this significant honor,” said Steve Grabenstein, president of The Van Winkle Law Firm. “Recognition as a top lawyer by his peers demonstrates Anderson’s quality of work and dedication to the legal profession.”

Business North Carolina magazine has honored the state’s lawyers by publishing Business North Carolina’s Legal Elite since 2002. The listing includes top lawyers in business related categories and winners are chosen by their peers throughout the state. This award ballot is sent to every member of the N.C. State Bar asking them to vote for the best attorney in each category, giving every active attorney in the state the opportunity to participate. Voters cannot vote for themselves and may only vote for members of their own firm if they choose out-of-firm attorneys in the same categories. The latter votes are weighed more heavily.

For more than 100 years, the attorneys at The Van Winkle Law Firm have provided a premier level of strategic legal counsel and services to meet clients’ personal, estate planning, commercial, business, and litigation needs. Van Winkle is the largest law firm headquartered in Asheville.
