GREENVILLE, S.C. – Wyche is pleased to announce that 22 Wyche lawyers were recently selected by their peers for inclusion in the latest edition of The Best Lawyers in America® (Copyright 2012 by Woodward/White, Inc., of Aiken, SC). Because Best Lawyers is based on an exhaustive peer-review survey in which more than 36,000 leading attorneys cast almost 4.4 million votes on the legal abilities of other lawyers in their practice areas, and because lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed, inclusion in Best Lawyers is considered a singular honor.
Wyche attorneys were recognized for their work in 30 different practice areas, indicating the breadth of the firm’s capabilities. Most of the attorneys listed have been recognized for many years in the guide. Wyche attorneys Rita Bolt Barker and Matthew Richardson were recognized for the first time in this year’s publication.
