Business North Carolina's Legal Elite includes the top lawyers chosen using a statewide ballot sent to every member of the N.C. State Bar living in North Carolina. Each votes for the top practitioner in each category. Voters may not pick themselves, and they may select partners and associates only if they also select lawyers outside the firm in the same categories. The top vote-getter in each category becomes a member of Business North Carolina's Legal Elite Hall of Fame and is ineligible to win again.
