Martin L. Brackett Jr., an attorney with Robinson Bradshaw, has been appointed to the University of North Carolina Charlotte Board of Trustees by Gov. Beverly Perdue.
Brackett, a member of Robinson Bradshaw’s litigation department, is one of four gubernatorial appointees on the 13-member Board of Trustees, which serves as the governing body for the university. Eight board members are appointed by the University of North Carolina Board of Governors, and the student body president serves as an ex-officio member. Brackett will serve a four-year term on the board that expires on June 30, 2015.
“It is a great honor to serve the entire UNC Charlotte community at Governor Perdue’s request,” said Brackett, a native Charlottean. “We are entering into an exciting period of tremendous growth at the university, fueled in part by the additional presence of the uptown campus building in First Ward.”

He is regularly named to a number of peer-recognized professional affiliations, including Best Lawyers in America, North Carolina Super Lawyers, Business North Carolina’s Legal Elite and Benchmark Litigation.
