Two Hundred+ Lawyers Milestone for US Law firm in The Carolinas

Four new lawyers join the Nexsen Pruet law firm in their Carolina offices of Columbia, Charleston & Charlotte, USA.  These recruits push the LAWorld member firm beyond the 200 attorney mark for the first time. The firm’s attorney count now stands at 202.

"When Paul Cooper and Frank Gary founded this firm 70 years ago in 1945, there were just 130 lawyers in all of Columbia," said John Sowards, the firm´s Board Chairman. "The fact that we now have more than 200 lawyers in 8 locations in North and South Carolina illustrates how the need for legal services continues to grow along with our economy."

Melissa Fried works with the firm´s Employment and Labor Law Group in Charleston.  In Columbia, John Wall practices with the Financial Services Group and Chris Hampton with the Business Litigation and Intellectual Property Groups. Katie Bradshaw works with the Employment and Labor Law Group in Charlotte.

Each year The National Law Journal ranks Nexsen Pruet among the 350 largest in the United State. The firm was the 215 largest in 2015.   Nexsen Pruet, LLC is one of the largest law firms in the Carolinas, with more than 200 attorneys and offices in Columbia, Charleston, Greenville, Hilton Head, and Myrtle Beach, S.C. as well as Charlotte, Greensboro, and Raleigh, N.C.  Founded in 1945, Nexsen Pruet provides a broad range of legal services to the business community and represents companies and other entities in local, state, national, and international venues.
