Nexsen Pruet

It all started back in 1945 with two lawyers in a small office in Columbia, S.C.  From its earliest days, the firm emphasized excellence, integrity and service—the characteristics that have driven its success.

From its humble beginnings, Nexsen Pruet quickly established itself in South Carolina's Capital, attracting top-tier clients like the City of Columbia, First National Bank and South Carolina Electric and Gas.

Through the 1950s and ‘60s, the firm continued to grow, but it was a slow process.  The leaders of the firm did not believe that bigger necessarily is better. 

However by the 1970s, the demand for legal services was growing and clients began to seek attorneys who focused in specific areas.  So the pace of growth quickened.

Through the 1980s, the firm brought in accomplished attorneys and hired top law school graduates.

In the 1990s and into the 2000s, the firm merged with existing practices and opened offices in new locations.  Today, Nexsen Pruet has offices in Charlotte, Greensboro and Raleigh, N.C. as well as Columbia, Charleston, Greenville, Hilton Head and Myrtle Beach, S.C.

Nexsen Pruet ranks among the National Law Journal’s 250 largest U.S. firms and as the firm’s client base grows, we continue to add new industry services to better serve them.
