Ex-N.C. Solicitor General Sawchak joins Robinson Bradshaw
Charlotte’s Robinson Bradshaw law firm added as shareholders former North Carolina Solicitor General Matthew Sawchak and Stephen Feldman, who will be working from the Chapel Hill office.
Sawchak joins the firm after serving as the state’s Solicitor General for the past three years, where he was lead counsel and oversaw all civil appeals in North Carolina, including appeals to the U.S. Supreme Court.
In March, Attorney General Josh Stein named Ryan Park as Sawchak’s successor. Park has been deputy solicitor general since 2017.
A graduate of Harvard University and Duke Law School, Sawchak specializes in appellate practice and antitrust litigation and previously clerked for Justice Clarence Thomas on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. He chairs the Antitrust Law Journal’s editorial board and is an elected member of the American Law Institute, an independent organization that produces legal scholarship.
Feldman focuses on business litigation, antitrust and appeals. His experience includes representing government agencies in federal and antitrust lawsuits, defeating unfair and deceptive trade practices, and defending shareholders in corporate-control disputes. An alumnus of Washington University and the University of Chicago Law School, Feldman serves as vice chair for the North Carolina Bar Association appellate practice section and N.C. Business Court rules committee. He previously worked at the Ellis & Winters lawfirm.
Founded in 1960, Robinson Bradshaw has more than 145 attorneys.
