Jill Huse moved to Charlotte, North Carolina, in 2007 to run marketing and business development for Moore & Van Allen, an Am Law 200 firm based in the city. Over the next few years, she watched as one Big Law firm after another moved in, crowding a market that now includes 24 Am Law 200 firms. All that change had a knock-on effect on her firm.
