North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper today announced the nomination of Hunton Andrews Kurth LLP partner A. Todd Brown, Sr. as a Special Superior Court Judge, to be designated to the North Carolina Business Court. His appointment is subject to confirmation by the state legislature.

Established in 1996, the North Carolina Business Court is a specialized forum of the state’s superior court division. Cases involving complex and significant issues of corporate and commercial law are designated by the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of North Carolina as complex business cases for assignment to a Business Court judge who oversees resolution of all matters in the case through trial.

Brown is a seasoned litigator whose experience covers a broad spectrum of complex business litigation, with an emphasis on commercial disputes, business torts, catastrophic personal injuries, consumer lending, unfair competition, and trade secrets litigation. He has defended products liability claims in federal multi-district litigation and state court actions, and handled complex multifamily construction defect cases. He also has litigated complex employment matters involving executive-level exposure under Title VII, FLSA, and ERISA, as well as sexual harassment and wrongful discharge cases.

Brown is currently serving as the 89th president of the North Carolina State Bar. Within the firm, Brown co-chairs the Diversity and Inclusion Committee and the Talent Development Committee, while actively contributing to the Associates Committee and Screening Committee. Additionally, he serves as Office Managing Partner for the firm’s Charlotte office, has previously served as the co-head of the firm's commercial litigation practice group, and is a former member of its Executive Committee.

Brown earned his Bachelor of Science degree in accounting and his law degree from the University of South Carolina, where he was a member of the Order of the Wig and Robe and was the student works editor for the South Carolina Law Review.
