Robert Shields represented me in a very complex and high dollar litigation and I couldn’t have been more pleased. Being a lawyer myself gave me the position to have a clearer and more detailed understanding of the demands the case placed upon him. Attorney Shields handled every aspect of my case with resolve, determination, and control resulting in my being fully protected as the defendant. I have known and followed the practice of this attorney for over 20 years and I highly recommend him.

George L. Collins, P.A.

“Manning Fulton is a key member of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill’s real estate team. Manning Fulton has been involved with Chapel Hill Foundation Real Estate Holdings, Inc. since its inception, and was instrumental in the acquisition and redevelopment of Carolina Square and Granville Towers, UNC’s first foray into off-campus development. Because of Manning Fulton’s experience and depth in commercial real estate, the Firm was able to guide us through complex ground lease, condominium and pre-leasing transactions with the development partner. Manning Fulton continues to provide UNC with its real estate expertise to this day, and we are grateful.”

Gordon Merklein
Associate Vice Chancellor, Real Estate Operations| University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

“Barry Mann, Jennifer Weaver, Teri Bowling and I have closed over forty real estate transactions in the last six years. The breadth and depth of their collective knowledge and experience of the entire legal process is perhaps only superseded by their timeliness, attention to detail and dependability. We consider them an integral part of the JEM team.”
