Travis Wheeler Named to "20 Under 40” List Columbia The State February 20, 2012
Nexsen Pruet attorney Travis Wheeler has been named to The State newspaper's “20 under 40” list for 2012. This is the 9th year that the paper has recognized Midlands business professionals, younger than the age of 40, who "fight for justice for those around them - in the courtroom, in the labor and delivery room, and even in the gymnasium."
For its profile, Wheeler told the paper why he enjoys his work:
"I love the practice of antitrust law. Each case requires you to become an expert in a new industry, and the damages caused by conspiracies to violate the antitrust laws (e.g. price-fixing) can be massive. The facts are almost always intriguing and complex."
