Nelson Mullins Attorneys Chosen for Top 40 Under 40 List

Atlanta associate Danny D. Patterson, Jr., Charlotte associate Ariel E. Roberson and Raleigh partner Antonia A. Peck have each been chosen as a Top 40 Under 40 attorney in Georgia and North Carolina, respectively, by the National Black Lawyers this year.

The National Black Lawyers is a membership organization that aims to celebrate legal excellence among black attorneys through the exchange of thought leadership and educational information within a strong national network. Members of The National Black Lawyers nominate attorneys under the age of 40 to be honored on the Top 40 list based on their leadership, reputation, influence, stature, and profile.

Patterson is a member of the Firm’s school and college law practice group, focusing his practice in litigation and alternative dispute resolution from start to finish. He has experience representing and advising individuals, educational institutions and large corporations in complex litigation matters. Previously, he was in-house counsel to a Fortune 100 company, where he represented and defended the company in complex litigation matters.

He is involved in his community, from holding volunteer leadership positions with the Morehouse College National Alumni Association and the ABA’s Council on Legal Educational Opportunity, to coaching South Atlanta High School’s mock trial team.

Roberson focuses her law practice primarily on business litigation, which includes complex commercial disputes, employment law, and financial services matters. She represents clients in a variety of contract settings involving business torts, unfair business practices and methods of competition.

She served on the Executive Board of the John S. Leary Association of Black Lawyers and has organized judicial candidate forums, voting rights panels, and networking events for the organization. She volunteers with Legal Aid of North Carolina, representing clients facing eviction and certain homelessness on landlord-tenant matters pro bono. And she has also served as a Guardian Ad Litem (GAL), a court-appointed attorney who investigates and determines the best interests of abused and neglected children petitioned into the court system.

Peck is a corporate transactions and regulatory healthcare partner who regularly advises healthcare systems, academic medical centers, large physician practices, pharmacies, laboratories, and other health care providers on mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, and other strategic alignments and complex affiliations between health care providers. Ms. Peck also regularly advises her clients on regulatory compliance matters, including 340B Drug Pricing Program and fraud and abuse issues such as the Stark Law and Anti-Kickback Statute. She also advises health care providers on day-to-day operations and governance matters, including risk management and compliance issues.

She is the Vice-Chair of the Board of Directors of Southlight Healthcare, a nonprofit behavioral health organization based in Raleigh that develops and implements comprehensive substance abuse disorders treatment programs for youth, adults and families.
