At Wyche we combine legal skills developed at the nation’s leading law schools with a thorough knowledge of the community and the state. From our offices overlooking the historic and scenic Reedy River Falls in Greenville, we advise our clients on the gamut of legal issues.
Our general counsel representation includes a significant number of publicly traded corporations, headquartered in South Carolina, as well as many privately held businesses. Over the years, we have become trusted legal advisors to our many long-standing clients.
Our corporate practice includes leveraged buy-outs, recapitalizations, public and private offerings, securities compliance, debt refinancing, economic incentives, revenue bond financings, and mergers and acquisitions. These transactions range from relatively small amounts to billion-dollar deals. We also engage in complex civil litigation in state and federal courts, including substantial class action work. We regularly handle matters in areas such as antitrust, First Amendment, securities, corporate governance, insurance practices, copyrights, patents and trade secrets. In addition to the areas just mentioned, the firm advises and litigates on behalf of clients in numerous areas, including bankruptcy, communications, construction, employment, employee benefits, environmental, financial institutions, health care, probate, commercial real estate, taxation, intellectual property and trade regulation. At the same time, we have an extensive practice relating to the needs of individuals, ranging from estate planning to immigration matters.
