Amalie Tuffin Named Top Business Lawyer in N.C.
Whitmeyer Tuffin PLLC, a Raleigh-based law firm serving emerging technology companies and entrepreneurs, announces today that partner Amalie Tuffin has been selected as a 2012 Legal Elite business law practitioner by Business North Carolina magazine. Tuffin is the state’s top vote-getter in the business law specialty.
“I am honored to be named as a top business attorney by my peers and Business North Carolina,” says Tuffin. “I look forward to serving our clients in 2012 and continuing to work with entrepreneurs to grow their businesses.”
Legal Elite attorneys were selected from more than 20,000 active members of the North Carolina State Bar. Chosen by their peers, this year the distinction was earned by only 650 of the total, with only 14 attorneys being named the top vote-getter in their specialty. The Legal Elite list of winners is available in Business North Carolina’s January 2012 issue and online on the Business North Carolina website.
Tuffin, a 20-year veteran of the legal industry, helped found Whitmeyer Tuffin in 2011. She regularly contributes content to publications discussing tax and other legal issues affecting entrepreneurs, as well as speaking on these topics. Tuffin also serves as an adjunct instructor in the paralegal program at Durham Technical Community College.
