Overview

Known to be “Famously Hot,” Columbia is at the intersection of all things government and business in South Carolina. As the capital of the state, the city is a hub for major employers including governmental agencies, nationally ranked universities, hospitals, and banks. International connections are attracted to low costs of doing business, with over 30 companies with international ties investing over 1.5 billion into the local economy. The capital city is also home to the state’s flagship university, University of South Carolina, attracting a young population along with favorite pastimes like baseball games, river tubing and a night out in the Vista. As ”Cola” town progresses, families enjoy the city’s award winning public library system and exploring nature just outside the city, like the Congaree National Park. It’s no wonder the city is one of the fastest growing metro areas in the southeast. 

Founded in 1945 in Columbia, Nexsen Pruet has a history of dependability and growth. Today, our award-winning attorneys remain invested in the midlands and leaders of Columbia. Bob Coble, affectionately known as “Mayor Bob,” served as the Mayor of the city for two decades before returning to Nexsen Pruet to serve as head of the Public Policy group. Staff like this have made Nexsen Pruet one of the largest firms in South Carolina that likewise serves many of the state’s largest businesses.

If you find yourself near the Statehouse, don’t hesitate to walk up Main Street and say hello.
