McGuireWoods’ Wilmington lawyers serve some of the country’s largest financial institutions as well as businesses throughout the region. Located in historic downtown Wilmington, the office complements the firm’s capabilities nationally and in the Carolinas and offers local clients the benefits afforded by McGuireWoods’ international reach and practice depth.
Our Wilmington lawyers represent financial institutions on the lending side regarding new loans and extensions of performing loans and they handle financial litigation and counsel clients going through the process of evaluation, stabilization, remediation and sale of real estate assets in their post-foreclosure ORE and CREO portfolios.
The office serves local small and midsized businesses as well as larger companies from outside the area with legal needs in eastern North Carolina. We offer clients local strength in corporate and litigation matters, particularly banking, commercial and financial litigation, creditors’ rights, mergers and acquisitions, healthcare and tax. Through representation of several developers, Wilmington lawyers also have significant experience in local real estate development.
McGuireWoods established its Wilmington office in 2008 under the legacy firm Helms Mulliss & Wicker, whose roots dated to 1922. A hallmark of Wilmington lawyers and staff is our commitment to the business, charitable and legal communities where we live and work. Our lawyers have held leadership positions in prominent organizations, including the Greater Wilmington Chamber of Commerce; Wilmington Business Development; Brigade Boys & Girls Club; Cape Fear Area United Way; North Carolina Coastal Land Trust; and the New Hanover County Bar Association.
