About Wyrick Robbins Yates & Ponton LLP

Operating out of a single office in Raleigh, NC, Wyrick Robbins advises clients in four main areas: business, commercial real estate, litigation, and wealth preservation.

The Wyrick Way

Some law firms have a motto or a guiding value—Wyrick Robbins takes it a step further with a set of 20 principles called “The Wyrick Way.” According to the firm, these principles are focused on providing client service with “respect, responsiveness, quality, and collegiality.” These principles include such tenets as acting ethically, putting the client’s interests first, valuing quality of quantity, listening, thinking outside the box, working as a team, focusing on well-being, and having community involvement.

One Office, Many Accomplishments

Wyrick Robbins may only have one office—but it’s a mighty one. The firm and its attorneys have been recognized by myriad publications, including Benchmark Litigation, Business North Carolina’s Legal Elite, Chambers USA, North Carolina Super Lawyers, and U.S. News & World Report and Best Lawyers®.

The firm’s transactional lawyers work with clients in such areas as banking, information technology, life sciences, private equity, and venture capital. Some recent deals in which the firm has been involved include Orthpediatrics’ acquisition of ApiFix, RTI International’s acquisition of Market Certitude, and HealthStream’s acquisition of NurseGrid.

In the litigation area, Wyrick Robbins has experience in appellate litigation, general commercial litigation, family law, government contracting, and labor and employment. The firm also has a busy commercial real estate department that covering development, environmental issues, financing, and land use and permits—among other areas.
