Cody Ledford is an associate attorney practicing in the fields of intellectual property and entertainment law. His ability to listen, understand, and empathize helps Cody when advising his clients. Whether it’s helping someone start a business, develop a brand, negotiate a deal, or protect something they’ve created, Cody’s passion for assisting people drives him to go the extra mile.

Cody is a graduate of Wake Forest University School of Law and is licensed to practice in North Carolina. He joined CarnesWarwick to pursue his interests in Intellectual Property Law, Arts and Entertainment Law, emerging legal technologies, and other areas of the practice that he feels are becoming more and more important in modern society.

Cody is able to translate his passion for his hobbies into these practice areas so that he may further relate to his clients’ needs. He loves playing cello, bass, and guitar. In his spare time he also enjoys cycling, gardening, photography, 3D printing, video games, and his two cats. When asked what he considered his “super power” he replied “My ability to always drink coffee, no matter what time it is!”
