RALEIGH, NC—Labor and employment attorney Devon Williams was recently elected to the position of Co-Managing Director Elect at Ward and Smith. She will lead the firm alongside Greenville-based litigator Brad Evans, who has served in this position since 2017. Most law firms have one Managing Partner, and Ward and Smith has always had two Co-Managing Directors.
Devon will assume the position of Co-Managing Director from predecessor Ken Wooten—who has served as a Co-Managing Director since 2005—when he retires from the firm at the end of 2020.
Devon will maintain her labor and employment practice when she becomes Co-Managing Director. She routinely advises employers on a wide range of labor and employment issues.
