About RPWB

With roots dating back to the 1930s in a small, but politically important town in South Carolina, RPWB was formed in 2002 as a collective of talented legal minds who focus on complex litigation that benefits consumers and ordinary people who are harmed through no fault of their own. The firm frequently holds leadership positions in national litigation against the world’s largest corporations. We are known as some of the first lawyers in the nation to successfully hold asbestos manufacturers liable for causing mesothelioma cancer, and as some of the notable attorneys who lead the fight against tobacco companies in the 1990s that culminated with the Tobacco Master Settlement Agreement. The firm enjoys a strong reputation for product liability, personal injury and class action litigation.

RPWB represents individual people in many practice areas, including: catastrophic personal injury, truck accidents, railroad accidents, construction defects, medical malpractice, mesothelioma and other occupational lung disease, nursing home abuse, pharmaceutical drugs and medical device cases.
