Karen McKeithen Schaede, a partner in Connors Morgan, PLLC, a business law firm in Greensboro, has been named one of the state’s Legal Elite for 2018 by Business North Carolina magazine. Fewer than 3 percent of North Carolina attorneys are chosen for this honor, which recognizes the top lawyers in the state as voted upon by their peers.
The listing of North Carolina’s Legal Elite, which this year includes winners in 16 business categories, is published annually in the January issue of Business North Carolina. Schaede was chosen in the category of employment law.
To select the winners, Business North Carolina asks all members of the North Carolina State Bar living in North Carolina to answer one question: “Of the Tar Heel lawyers whose work you have observed firsthand, whom would you rate among the current best in these categories?”
Lawyers are not allowed to vote for themselves. They may select members of their firms only if they pick out-of-firm lawyers in the same categories, with the latter votes weighted more heavily. The top vote-getter in each category becomes a member of Business North Carolina’s Legal Elite Hall of Fame and is ineligible to win again.
An attorney practicing employment law and healthcare law in the Carolinas since 1992, Schaede has extensive experience providing legal services to businesses and healthcare institutions of all sizes.
She can be reached via email at KSchaede@ConnorsMorgan.com, via phone at 336-333-7907, or on the web at www.ConnorsMorgan.com. Connors Morgan is located at 1175 Revolution Mill Dr., Suite 8, in Greensboro, NC.
