Rosenwood, Rose & Litwak is thrilled to announce that it has welcomed Carl Burchette to the firm's partnership, effective January 1, 2021.
Carl concentrates his law practice on general civil and commercial litigation, with a special focus in construction and real-estate development. His construction and business clients include owners, developers, contractors, manufacturers, and associations throughout the Southeast and with businesses and projects throughout North America. Carl’s experience in litigation has led to high praise from his clients, and his success and reputation have consistently earned him recognition in the peer-reviewed publications of Legal Elite, Super Lawyers, and Best Lawyers.
Carl is the firm’s newest partner, but his history with his fellow law partners is a long one. Carl, a Charlotte native, knew Erik Rosenwood before beginning law school in 2011. Carl then met Nancy Litwak in Chapel Hill, where they were neighbors and both attended UNC School of Law. After graduating law school in 2014, Carl began his practice at a law firm in Asheville, where, on Carl’s first construction case, he met Whitaker Rose who was representing a co-defendant. By 2017, Whitaker, Nancy, and Carl had all joined a local law firm in Charlotte where Erik Rosenwood was a practicing partner. When Erik, Whitaker, and Nancy started Rosenwood, Rose, & Litwak, PLLC in 2018, Carl was the first attorney they hired. The firm and partners are now pleased to have Carl join them as a partner.
The development and construction industry is not just an aspect of work for Carl, but also something he takes a genuine interest in improving. Carl dedicates a significant amount of time outside of work to the North Carolina Bar Association Construction Section, co-chairing the legislative committee and acting as an officer (presently as secretary and formerly as treasurer). Carl also sits on the Construction Professional Network of North Carolina Board of Directors (both for the organization and its sister, non-profit institute), and works with various committees for the American Bar Association’s Forum on Construction Law. Carl also frequently organizes and presents on industry and legal topics to bar associations and industry groups.
