The American Lawyer and the Charlotte Business Journal covered Parker Poe opening a full-service office in Washington, D.C., that includes a new consulting subsidiary called PPC-Leftwich.
Both publications noted it is the firm's first office outside the Southeast and that the firm opened it in partnership with Leftwich LLC, a long-standing minority/woman-led firm in the nation’s capital.
“The Leftwich LLC team is excited to join forces with Parker Poe and leverage the firm’s size and strength in serving clients,” PPC-Leftwich CEO Marie Johns said. “We are committed to continuing our founder Willie Leftwich’s legacy of extraordinary service to clients and deep engagement in our city.”
Dwanda Glenn-Woodward joined Marie at PPC-Leftwich as a consultant.
The Parker Poe law firm added five attorneys from Leftwich LLC: Thomas D. Bridenbaugh, Nicholas S. Penn, Sherry F. Bellamy, Scott A. Burrell, and Roderic L. Woodson. It also added Michael P. Kelley, a veteran investment attorney.
