May 23, 2011

J. Dickson Phillips, III, has joined Robinson Bradshaw & Hinson, P.A. in the firm’s Research Triangle office.

Phillips practices primarily in civil and commercial litigation, contract law, intellectual property, land use and dispute resolution. He returns to Robinson Bradshaw after having been a partner at the firm’s Charlotte office from 1979 to 1991.

Phillips currently serves as an adjunct professor of law at University of North Carolina School of Law, and he is serving a six-year term on the North Carolina Environmental Management Commission, where he is chairman of the Renewable Energy Committee.

Phillips has been a certified mediator since 1992 and was a mediator and private judge with the Duke University Private Adjudication Center from 1994 to 2002. He most recently was a partner at Lewis Phillips Hinkle in Chapel Hill.

“Dickson was a valued member of the firm during his previous tenure, and we are happy that his career path allows him to join us again,” said Robert Griffin, managing partner of Robinson Bradshaw. “He brings a breadth of knowledge and experience in business litigation, dispute resolution and mediation and is a welcome addition of our growing practice in the Research Triangle.”

Phillips has been included in North Carolina Super Lawyers magazine for his work in business litigation and holds an AV® Peer Review rating from Martindale-Hubbell.

Phillips grew up in Chapel Hill and earned his bachelor’s degree from Davidson College. He graduated with honors from the University of North Carolina School of Law, where he also served as Editor-in-Chief of North Carolina Law Review. He first joined Robinson Bradshaw in 1979 immediately following graduation from law school. He also holds a Diploma in Law from Oxford University (Brasenose College).

“Robinson Bradshaw is where I started my legal career, and the ideals of the founders of the firm and of my early mentors here strongly shaped my approach to the practice of law,” Phillips said. “It’s a privilege to be afforded an opportunity to return and rejoin one of the most respected groups of attorneys in the State.”
