MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (September 9, 2021) In a year marked by significant growth, Buxton & Collie, LLC, bolsters its unique catalog of legal services with the hiring of Michael W. Allen, Jr. Allen merges his extensive experience in both the commercial real estate and legal fields to seamlessly guide his clients through business, construction, and property transactions and related litigation matters.

This addition to the award-winning team of attorneys at Buxton & Collie, LLC, uniquely positions the firm to respond to the diverse legal needs of a robust regional real estate market.
