COLUMBIA, S.C. – At Lewis Babcock law firm, we’re fearless in our dedication to serving our clients. Our clients know that, and so do our peers in the legal profession.

It’s no surprise that every attorney in our firm has been honored by “Best Lawyers in America®” in its 2024 edition. Here they are with the practice areas in which they are being recognized among their peers in the Columbia area:

• Keith M. Babcock: Eminent Domain and Condemnation Law, Ethics and Professional Responsibility Law, Legal Malpractice Law — Plaintiffs
• Ariail E. King: Mass Tort Litigation/Class Actions — Plaintiffs
• Joseph Berry: “Best Lawyers: Ones to Watch” in Commercial Litigation, Eminent Domain and Condemnation Law, Litigation — Real Estate

The “Ones to Watch” list honors attorneys who have practiced less than 10 years. This is Joseph’s second year in a row on the Ones to Watch list. His practice includes fiduciary negligence, business disputes, eminent domain cases, and appellate matters.

Founding Partner Keith Babcock has made the Best Lawyers list every year since 2007. As noted above, he was yet again honored in the area of eminent domain, a topic in which he is particularly known and widely respected. He regularly addresses groups across the state and country on that area of law. He’s the only full member in South Carolina of the Owners’ Counsel of America, a national group of eminent domain attorneys who represent landowners.

Partner Ariail King is a new addition to the Best Lawyers list, as it is her first time being recognized for her work in mass tort litigation. She focuses her practice on appellate cases in addition to class actions.

The goal of “Best Lawyers” is to capture the consensus opinion of leading lawyers about the abilities of their colleagues within the same geographic regions and same practice areas. The selection process begins with a nomination from a colleague and then peer review from attorneys previously recognized in “Best Lawyers.” Independent research also is conducted.
