Moore & Van Allen PLLC (MVA) is pleased to announce that Financial Services Member Kaitlin D. Powers has been selected as a North Carolina Lawyers Weekly “Icons and Phenoms of Law” winner. Honorees will be recognized at an awards event on July 20.
The “Icons and Phenoms of Law” awards celebrate the achievements and contributions of the region’s most accomplished and promising legal professionals. More than 30 winners were selected for the 2023 awards.
“Congratulations to Kaitlin, who is extremely deserving of this award,” said MVA Co-head of Financial Services C.

She also advises clients on structuring and documenting secured and unsecured credit facilities and single-lender and syndicated lending transactions across a wide array of industries.
In addition to her demanding practice, Powers spends considerable time helping under-resourced entrepreneurs execute on their business dreams through her work to launch and now oversee the newly incorporated nonprofit Charlotte Legal Initiative to Mobilize Businesses (CLIMB).
