Brad Waring is a leader within Nexsen Pruet as well as in South Carolina's legal and business communities. He is a trained trial lawyer whose first jury trial occurred more than thirty-five years ago. Brad is frequently sought as a speaker on trial tactics, professionalism and a variety of other topics.
Brad's litigation practice is concentrated primarily in the civil arena at the state and federal levels. He represents clients in complex commercial litigation including products liability, insurance coverage, business disputes and admiralty. He is also frequently asked by his peers to serve as mediator in a variety of complex cases.
However, the reach of his law practice stretches far outside of courtrooms.Leadership for Nexsen Pruet
Brad is a member of the firm's Board of Directors.
In that position, he is heavily involved with client relations, working to ensure that businesses and professionals receive a high level of service. Additionally, he serves a deputy for the firm's business litigation group and as co-chair of the firm's insurance litigation committee. His leadership is also evident outside of the walls of our law firm.Leadership for the South Carolina Bar
Throughout his career, Brad has held numerous leadership positions within the South Carolina legal community. In 2006, he was installed as President of the South Carolina Bar and has served as a State Bar Delegate to the American Bar Association, as a member of the South Carolina Judicial Council and accepted an invitation to join the prestigious National Center for State Courts' Lawyers Committee.
Brad is at the forefront of efforts to reform judicial funding in the Palmetto State. He works with lawmakers and executives in order to help everyone understand the link between the courts and business. Brad recognizes that the perilous state of judicial funding is a serious threat to the state's economy because businesses rely on a working court system and judicial delays can have tremendous impacts - causing layoffs, downsizings and even closures.Leadership in Economic Development
In recent years, Brad has focused more of his attention on improving South Carolina through economic development.
He works with political and community leaders to attract business and industry expansion. Brad is Honorary Danish Consul for North and South Carolina and in that role he fosters relationships with leaders from Denmark and around the World.Before Nexsen Pruet
