Brad Waring and Marguerite Willis Recognized by Litigation Counsel of America
August 24, 2017
Nexsen Pruet Members (partners) Brad Waring and Marguerite Willis have been named Senior Fellows of the Litigation Counsel of America (LCA). Both are litigators who serve in leadership roles for the firm as well as South Carolina’s legal community.
Waring’s litigation practice is concentrated primarily in the civil arena at the state and federal levels. He represents clients in complex commercial litigation including products liability, insurance coverage, subrogation claims, business disputes and admiralty. He is frequently asked by his peers to serve as mediator in a variety of complex cases. Waring is Honorary Danish Consul for North and South Carolina and in that role he fosters relationships with leaders from Denmark and around the World.
Willis is a chair of Nexsen Pruet’s Antitrust and Unfair Competition Practice, where she develops proactive solutions to help clients achieve business objectives while avoiding issues with federal and state antitrust and trade regulation laws. She has served as national counsel for a number of cases, including federal and state class actions, and prosecuted major antitrust matters involving a wide range of claims, from unfair trade practices and false advertising to monopolization and vicarious corporate liability. Willis has been involved in some of the firm’s biggest verdicts, and her experience includes matters governing competition, including pricing, distribution agreements, marketing programs, competitor collaboration, joint ventures, mergers and acquisitions, and advertising issues. She is currently President-Elect for the LCA, and will serve as President in 2018.
The LCA is a trial lawyer honorary society composed of less than one-half of one percent of American lawyers. Fellowship in the LCA is highly selective and by invitation only. Fellows are selected based upon excellence and accomplishment in litigation, both at the trial and appellate levels, and superior ethical reputation. Senior Fellow status in the society is reserved for advanced commitment to and support of the LCA, Diversity Law Institute and Trial Law Institute. The LCA is aggressively diverse in its composition. Established as a trial and appellate lawyer honorary society reflecting the American bar in the twenty-first century, the LCA represents the best in law among its membership. The number of Fellowships has been kept at an exclusive limit by design, allowing qualifications, diversity and inclusion to align effectively, with recognition of excellence in litigation across all segments of the bar.
