The merger with Buist Moore Smythe McGee gives Womble Carlyle attorneys and clients a list of varied benefits, including access to the specialty experience in
Buist Moore Smythe McGee’s Admiralty and Maritime practice area, a strong position to serve the currently underway expansion of the Panama Canal, and additional critical mass in South Carolina. Specifically, with the addition of a Charleston office, Womble Carlyle’s Greenville, S.C., office is poised to expand its in-state geographic network and footprint in which it can directly assist clients.
“Buist Moore Smythe McGee has been a bedrock business law firm within the Charleston market for years, and now the merger with Womble Carlyle gives our talented attorneys a much broader platform to serve our clients,” said Henry Smythe, Buist Moore Smythe McGee Managing Partner. ”The existing synergies between our core practice areas and those of Womble Carlyle provide opportunities to expand client relationships within the Southeast region and beyond. Womble Carlyle currently has offices from Atlanta to Delaware and is a prominent law firm within that region. The opportunities for Buist Moore Smythe McGee attorneys to serve clients regionally, nationally and globally will increase significantly.”
Current Buist Moore Smythe McGee attorneys will continue to practice from their Charleston location at 5 Exchange Street once the merger goes into effect.
