Keith Babcock, a founding member of the law firm Lewis Babcock, is listed in the just-released 2022 edition of “Best Lawyers in America.”
Babcock has been included in every edition of the national guide since 2007. He’s honored this year in two practice areas: Eminent Domain and Condemnation Law and Legal Malpractice – Plaintiffs.
Widely regarded as a national thought leader on the topic of eminent domain, Babcock often addresses groups across the state and country on the topic. He’s South Carolina’s sole representative on the Owner’s Counsel of America, a national group of eminent domain lawyers who represent landowners.
His practice consists almost entirely of litigation, with a focus on eminent domain and professional negligence.
Based entirely on peer review, “Best Lawyers” aims to capture the consensus opinion of leading lawyers about the abilities of their colleagues within the same practice area and same geographic region.
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.
From talking about the law to discussing the reality of how the law works to pondering ideas for changes, attorneys Joe Berry and Daniel Coble will cover a variety of legal topics during their new podcast “The Litigation Strategies.”
Both attorneys offer listeners a wealth of litigation experience. Daniel is a former associate chief judge for Richland County and former assistant solicitor for the Fifth Judicial Circuit. Joe also is a former prosecutor in the Fifth Judicial Circuit Solicitor’s Office with extensive courtroom experience in a variety of cases.
