Litigation attorneys Cory Reiss and Kyle Nutt started Reiss & Nutt PLLC, 1221 Floral Parkway, Suite 104, to serve clients throughout North Carolina, according to a news release.
The release stated that Reiss and Nutt have experience taking cases to trial before judges and juries in various forums, including the North Carolina Business Court and District and Superior Courts throughout southeastern North Carolina.
Reiss and Nutt, formerly of the Wilmington law firm Shipman & Wright, bring experience from previous careers to their litigation practice, according to the release.
Reiss spent nearly 15 years as a journalist in Virginia, North Carolina and Washington, D.C., including as a news reporter for the StarNews in the late 1990s before leading Washington coverage for 14 papers owned by the New York Times from 2000 to 2007.
"I covered a lot of ground as a journalist, but the courts beat was always my favorite," Reiss stated in the release. "I'm fortunate to have spent so many years learning how to gather and use information to tell a compelling story before turning to the law. Those are skills that a trial lawyer has to use every day."
Nutt holds an accounting degree and spent his first career as an accountant.
"In so many of our cases, an understanding of accounting practices and business organizations is incredibly important," Nutt said. "I think it's a great asset to have a past that can propel your future work."
Reiss & Nutt PLLC represents businesses as general counsel and in commercial litigation, according to the release. It also represents individuals in cases involving contracts, medical and nursing home negligence, personal injury and divorce, custody and other family law matters.
