Our History

The firm’s founders, Robert (Bob) Lassiter, Jr. and James (Jim) O. Moore, opened offices in uptown Charlotte intentionally seeking a business and banking practice at a time when other firms pursued a more general practice model. By 1955, William (Bill) K. Van Allen joined renaming to Lassiter, Moore & Van Allen, and becoming one of the largest firms in Charlotte. Through internal growth and mergers, Moore & Van Allen now consists of nearly 400 attorneys with offices located in the Carolinas.

The legacy of our founders has been to maintain an emphasis on client service, collaboration, and community service.
