The Great Trent River Raft Race is back AGAIN on Saturday, June 22 at Union Point Park. The revival of the race in 2018, after a 20 year or so hiatus, was a huge success! We look forward to this being a signature event for New Bern for years to come. The race takes hundreds of hours of planning plus hundreds of volunteers to make it happen. One of the most important components of an event of this size is, of course, our sponsors. We would like to thank Sumrell Sugg Attorneys at Law for being a returning Second Mate sponsor this year. Here is a little about them in their own words.
Sumrell Sugg is a progressive firm that strives always to deliver exemplary responsiveness to its clients. Whether clients are individuals, corporations, or local governments and municipalities, the firm delivers on an undeviating promise of service.
Part of that service is the recognition that the lawyer of today must know not just the law and the law’s interpretation but also have a firm grasp of what lies over the horizon regarding matters of importance to any client or action. In turn, Sumrell Sugg attorneys have a clear understanding of how to accurately address client needs, both present and future, in an ever-changing regulatory and legal environment. Firm lawyers routinely provide leadership in the management of complex financial agreements and transactions, litigation strategy, technology, business management and corporate governance. Sumrell Sugg attorneys and associates are deeply experienced in all these areas and more.
For Sumrell Sugg, service also means stewardship of client interests beyond the giving of day-to-day sound legal advice. The law is often complex and demanding; it requires time, time costs money, and frequently legal decisions must be made in the context of business, economic, financial, inter-personal or political circumstances that separately impact, influence or dictate a particular legal decision. The firm is keenly aware that while its job is to provide legal solutions for client matters, the firm’s lawyers must do so efficiently, and with reference to other social or environmental constructs. Costs are estimated, monitored and reviewed, and reported on a scheduled basis. Winning isn’t winning if it comes at too high a price, or if the legal resolution poses hardship or difficulty for the client in another arena.
Sumrell Sugg hopes to earn long-term relationships with clients. There is no opportunity of service that we will not explore for our clients’ benefit.
Thank you again for being a Second Mate sponsor!
