Firm Overview

A national firm with South Carolina roots

RPWB attorneys have extensive experience in sophisticated litigation brought locally, nationally and internationally. The firm is focused on the representation of individuals, corporations, and governments in complicated disputes across a diverse range of practice areas.

We are frequently selected to hold leadership positions in class actions and multidistrict litigations. Our attorneys are licensed to practice in 16 states and territories. With a network of co-counsel partners across the country, the firm has the knowledge, skill and resources to investigate and litigate throughout the United States.

As a result of RPWB’s experience and success at managing complex litigation, the firm frequently associates with other law firms to assist those attorneys in the pursuit of class actions, multidistrict litigations or other cases with challenging and cutting-edge legal issues. RPWB possesses the resources to coordinate related litigations in multiple venues for the benefit of the firm’s clients and the tenacity and legal skill to achieve compensation for those who have been wronged.

We also litigate many catastrophic personal injury cases, truck accidents, railroad accidents, construction defects, environmental degradation and mesothelioma claims.
