CHARLOTTE (Dec. 28, 2016)–Business North Carolina magazine has named Benjamin S. Chesson, a litigation associate in Nelson Mullins Riley & Scarborough LLP’s Charlotte office, to its “Legal Elite Young Guns 2017” list.

According to the publication, Business North Carolina magazine sends ballot notices to North Carolina attorneys asking them whose work they would rate among the current best in several practice areas. Attorneys are not allowed to vote for themselves. They may select members of their firms only if they pick out-of-firm lawyers in the same categories, with the latter votes weighted more heavily.
