The South Carolina Chamber of Commerce recently featured a profile of Nexsen Pruet member (partner) Burnie Maybank. Maybank is a two-time Director of the South Carolina Department of Revenue.
The article explores "some of the facets of life" that make Maybank "truly unique" including "a basset hound, honey bees and a bright tax mind."
On any given day at his law office in Columbia, South Carolina, Maybank can be found serving some of South Carolina's largest companies while dressed in khakis and a shirt covered in flying ducks. Clients don't care about the unusual business attire because Maybank's legal mind and understanding of state and local tax laws is comprehensive and solution oriented. That being said, those clients often get a South Carolina history lesson or two when navigating multi-million dollar tax issues.
Maybank is a descendant of six former South Carolina Governors. One of them, Maybank's grandfather, is one of only 20 people to serve as Mayor (of Charleston), Governor and United States Senator.
