Lewis Babcock LLP announces the expansion of its law practice with the addition of partner Badge Humphries and the opening of an office in the Charleston area.
Located at 2113 Middle Street on Sullivan’s Island, the firm’s new office is just a few miles from the location of a property-rights dispute on Isle of Palms that generated one of the firm’s most notable wins – Lucas v. South Carolina Coastal Council, a seminal U.S. Supreme Court decision that reshaped federal constitutional law on regulatory takings for the benefit of landowners.
With an extensive background in complex federal and state class actions, securities fraud litigation and shareholder rights, Humphries litigates cases involving Ponzi schemes, business disputes, wage-and-hour, whistleblower claims, and land-use and eminent domain/condemnation issues. He also handles legal and medical malpractice, defective drugs, harmful medical devices, and other personal injury matters.
“A physical presence in the Charleston area will allow us to connect more frequently with our current clients and co-counsel while developing new relationships and areas of practice,” stated co-founding partner A. Camden Lewis.
Humphries joins Lewis Babcock from plaintiffs’ litigation firm Motley Rice LLC where he was a member of the consumer protection, securities fraud and occupational disease litigation teams. He earned a J.D. with honors from the University of Texas School of Law and a B.A. summa cum laude from Tulane University.
Admitted to practice in South Carolina, Georgia, Kentucky, Texas, and West Virginia, Humphries currently serves on the Board of Governors of the South Carolina Association for Justice (SCAJ) as the Consumer and Securities Law Section Chair. Humphries is the partner-in-charge of the new Lewis, Babcock & Griffin Charleston office and can be reached directly at (843) 883-7444.
