STICKING WITH FIRM’S ROOTS
A North Carolina flag flaps from the stern of a boat on the Inner Coastal. Waves softly roll across a beach on the Outer Banks. An aerial view of the city of Oaks glides by. Puffy, white clouds float across the Smokey Mountains. The images on Young Moore and Henderson’s just-launched web-site were designed to communicate the firm’s direction under new managing partner, David Duke.
“We are a North Carolina firm, based in Raleigh with deep roots in Raleigh,” said Duke. “Charlie Young, Joe Moore and B.T. Henderson began practicing in 1954, and Charlie pretty much took care of everything until his retirement in 1984. Mike Strickland later assumed management responsibility and guided us for 25 years until his retirement.”
Asked if there will be any change in direction or culture under his tutelage, Duke responded, “Not if I can help it. We are in a good place and traveling in the right direction. From the day I started, we’ve had a culture emphasizing excellence in legal work, civility, and professionalism. I have every expectation that will never change.”
The 43-attorney firm represents clients across many industries in matters involving civil litigation, business transactions, employment law, estate planning, wealth preservation, and administrative law.
