Leighton Lord, Chairman of Nexsen Pruet

SOUTH CAROLINA – For the first time in the law firm’s history, The American Lawyer ranked Nexsen Pruet in the Am Law 200. This list highlights U.S. law firms with the highest gross revenue. Nexsen Pruet is one of only two South Carolina-based law firms on the list.

“Skill and integrity are in our DNA, service and value are our business plan,” said Leighton Lord, Chairman of Nexsen Pruet. “In 2018, we seized the opportunity to be innovative when possible, focusing on strategic ways to help our clients succeed.”
The firm’s arrival to this coveted group comes at a time of heightened competition from large, national law firms moving into the Carolinas. Nexsen Pruet remains competitive with nearly 200 lawyers in eight offices throughout North and South Carolina.

Journalists and researchers with The American Lawyer generate the annual Am Law 200 list.

Nexsen Pruet is one of the largest law firms in the Carolinas, with nearly 200 attorneys and offices in Columbia, Charleston, Greenville, Hilton Head and Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, as well as Charlotte, Greensboro and Raleigh, North Carolina. 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.
