About Ellis & Winters LLP

Ellis & Winters LLP is a litigation and commercial real estate firm with offices in Raleigh, Greensboro, and Charlotte, North Carolina. We represent clients regionally, nationally, and internationally, and our practice is equipped to handle uniquely challenging and complex matters. Ellis & Winters combines deep insights gained through practice with larger firms, while maintaining the nimble structure and flexibility of a smaller firm. 

Our Story

The story of Ellis & Winters is one of ingenuity, ambition and self-determination. In 2000, eleven lawyers from a leading national law firm formed a new premier firm in North Carolina. They created Ellis & Winters to provide exemplary legal representation through a select team of attorneys with the resources and knowledge base necessary to handle sophisticated legal concerns and the freedom to adapt dynamically to every client’s needs.

When Ellis & Winters was formed, our founders had already built strong reputations in their respective practice areas. They worked in various capacities as leaders in the legal industry, having served as national counsel for several multinational corporations. 

Since our founding, our team has worked hard to enhance the firm’s reputation at the state, regional and national levels. We have tripled in size and have grown through the careful addition of both lateral and new attorneys, who have combined to improve our capabilities in handling sophisticated matters.

Deep Experience

Our litigation team has handled a broad spectrum of matters, from pre-suit investigations and counseling through trial and appeal. This experience has given us a broader perspective on litigation that allows us to identify the various ways in which a case can develop. It also enables us to execute an exit strategy, when needed, that will lead to a favorable result.

The firm’s commercial real estate practice handles a similarly broad array of projects.  These include purchases, sales, leases of all kinds, a variety of commercial loans, and numerous developments, including those that change city skylines.  Our extensive experience allows us to provide practical, strategic and sophisticated advice to help guide our clients through their commercial real estate deals.

Creative, Nimble Representation

We pride ourselves on our creative and adaptable approach to legal representation. Our organizational structure puts our clients’ legal matters in the hands of those who are best equipped to resolve them at every stage of the dispute process.

If you require assistance with a litigation or commercial real estate matter, our team is available to provide industry-leading representation. Contact an attorney at Ellis & Winters for comprehensive guidance.
