RALEIGH — For the third year in a row, Catharine Biggs Arrowood, a Lumberton native and partner with the Parker Poe Adams & Bernstein law firm in Raleigh, has been included in Benchmark Litigation’s annual list of the Top 250 Women in Litigation.
The rankings, released this week, were determined by client and peer interviews conducted by the publication’s editorial team.
Before her 37 years with the firm, Arrowood served as an associate attorney general for the North Carolina Department of Justice. Her practice areas include commercial litigation and arbitration, including antitrust and business torts, intellectual property litigation, alternative dispute resolution, and class action defense.
Arrowood serves as president of the North Carolina Board Association’s Board of Governors and was recognized by the NCBA in 2011 as the recipient of the H. Brent McKnight Renaissance Lawyer Award.
Arrowood ’s father, the late Murchison Biggs, practiced law in Robeson County for more than 50 years and was inducted into the North Carolina Board Association’s General Practice Hall of Fame.
