Morningstar Law Group, a Triangle business law firm, and Wood Jackson PLLC, a Raleigh litigation firm that focuses on intellectual property, technology, and business litigation, are thrilled to announce that they joined forces on January 1, 2016. With the addition of the 4 former Wood Jackson lawyers and staff, Morningstar Law Group grows to a business law firm of 25 attorneys and adds a fully staffed office in Raleigh to complement its existing office in Research Triangle Park.
“The addition of the Wood Jackson attorneys strengthens Morningstar Law Group’s ability to meet the intellectual property and technology law challenges of our clients,” said Randy Whitmeyer, a technology lawyer who serves as administrative partner of Morningstar Law Group. “The addition enhances Morningstar Law Group’s litigation and intellectual property practice areas with experienced IP litigators who handle complex intellectual property and business litigation matters involving technology.”
