Practice Areas

March 18, 2021

In celebration of Women’s History Month, Robinson Bradshaw is highlighting women from the firm throughout March. Meet corporate attorney Morgan Abbott.

Describe what you do at Robinson Bradshaw.

I advise clients in a broad range of corporate, tax and transactional matters with a focus on tax-exempt and nonprofit organizations, foundations, and health care and educational entities. I also counsel emerging-company clients through their life cycles and advise on investment management and private investment transactions.

What do you most enjoy about your job?

I enjoy breaking down complicated legal problems to find a practical solution that creates value for clients and allows for external impact in the communities they serve.

What advice do you have for other women in the workplace?

I value close friendships and mentorships with fellow female attorneys, both at Robinson Bradshaw and elsewhere. I encourage other women to build a support network of women with whom they can identify and relate.

Who is a historical female figure you admire, and why?

A North Carolina resident during her formative years, Ella Baker conveys that it is not necessary to be in the spotlight to inspire a movement and effectuate tangible social change.

What is one lesson you’ve learned during the COVID-19 pandemic?

The COVID-19 pandemic served to remind me the importance of intentional communication with family, friends, colleagues and clients. I also learned to cut my spouse’s hair!

Tell us something about yourself that we wouldn’t learn from your website bio.

I have completed multiple marathons and half-marathons, including the Boston Marathon. More recently, I can be found running trails in my neighborhood with my dog, Zuri, and my 7-month-old son, Michael, along for the adventure in his jogging stroller.
