A statewide firm with a national reputation, Lewis Babcock fights for clients in cases involving eminent domain, professional negligence, business disputes, and complex litigation.
Lewis Babcock combines the skill and tenacity of trial lawyers with the intellectual rigor of appellate counsel. The firm represents clients at all stages of litigation, from pre-suit demand through appeals in the highest state and federal courts.
Keith Babcock, who is widely regarded as a thought leader around eminent domain, co-founded the firm in 1984. He is the only South Carolina lawyer in the Owner’s Counsel of America, a national eminent domain organization.
Today, the firm consists of Babcock, Ariail King, David Paavola, and Joe Berry. Paavola, who focuses on eminent domain and professional negligence, is the newest partner.
