In this month’s Business NC magazine, our General Counsel, Mike Okun, was once again selected as one of the state’s “Legal Elite,” a recognition received by only about 3% of the state’s lawyers.
Also, at a dinner in Washington last November, Mike was inducted as a Fellow in the national College of Labor and Employment Lawyers. Mike is only the second North Carolina lawyer to be inducted into the College and the only lawyer representing unions and individuals. Inducted at the same time was David Prouty, formerly the General Counsel of UNITE! and now senior labor counsel to the Major League Baseball Players Association, and who many of you know from his work on many campaigns in North Carolina.
Last year Mike was also selected to be in The Best Lawyers in America and in NC Superlawyers, published by Law and Politics Magazine.
