Heyl Receives Section Honor

Jon Heyl

The North Carolina Bar Association’s Antitrust & Complex Business Disputes Law Section presented its Distinguished Service Award to Jon Heyl on Feb. 7 at the N.C. Bar Center in Cary.

The award was presented in conjunction with the section’s annual meeting and CLE.

Heyl is a partner at Fox Rothschild in Charlotte, where he is a member of the firm’s litigation team focusing on commercial litigation. He is also certified by the N.C. Dispute Resolution Commission as a mediator in North Carolina.

“I am humbled and honored that the section chose me to receive this very meaningful award,” Heyl said. “I have been a member of the Antitrust & Complex Business Disputes Law Section since 2003 and have enjoyed every year of it.

“The section has provided me with the opportunity to work with and get to know some of the best antitrust and complex business litigation attorneys in the state.”

Heyl is a graduate of the University of North Carolina School of Law and East Carolina University.

In addition to his service as a council member and chair of the Antitrust & Complex Business Disputes Law Section, Heyl has provided volunteer service and leadership to numerous NCBA and North Carolina Bar Foundation committees, including service on the Endowment Committee and the Joint Diversity Task Force.

Heyl is a past chair of the Judicial Independence Committee, the Membership Committee and former co-chair of the 4ALL Statewide Service Day Committee. He served on the NCBA Board of Governors and NCBF Board of Directors from 2010-13.

The Distinguished Service Award is given by the section every other year. Previous recipients are John F. Graybeal (2009), Everett J. Bowman (2011), Noel L. Allen (2013), Judge John R. Jolly Jr. (2015) and Matthew Sawchak (2017).
