Spilman Thomas & Battle, PLLC shares a rich history with West Virginia. Indeed, its origins date back to the founding of the Mountain State when Spilman's founders served as Lincoln's land lawyers. In the ensuing 14 decades, the firm has emerged as a leader in the business community and the legal profession across the Mid-Atlantic Inland Basin.

No other law firm knows and understands the Mid-Atlantic region better than Spilman. As one of the region's largest law firms, we offer a full-service legal practice and are proud of the diversity of our client base — one that includes Fortune 500™ companies with thousands of employees, as well as entrepreneurial entities and locally-owned small businesses.

Charleston is West Virginia's capital city and home to a dynamic economy. With an MSA of more than 250,000 residents, Charleston boasts a dynamic and diverse economy. In addition to its role as the center of state government, the capital city is a thriving regional healthcare center, home to a vibrant professional service sector and the base for many energy-related businesses.

Charleston is also the location of Spilman Thomas & Battle's headquarters. The firm resides in Spilman Center, a four-story, 40,000 s.f., brick and glass office building overlooking the Kanawha River. This conveniently located, comfortable facility is home to a diverse group of attorneys and all the firm's administrative functions. As a result of its affordable cost of living, favorable energy costs and attractive real estate rates, Charleston provides many economic advantages for Spilman and, in turn, for the firm's clients.

Spilman Thomas & Battle has a broad general practice. The firm is organized around two major departments: corporate and litigation. Nearly all of the firm's practice groups are represented in Charleston. Attorneys throughout the firm assist clients without regard to boundaries or location, thanks to a "One Firm" management credo and a robust technology platform offering fast, secure networks that facilitate workflow, collaboration and information sharing.

The firm's Charleston office supports thriving law practices in such areas as banking & finance, bankruptcy & creditors' rights, bond & municipal finance, consumer finance, energy & public utilities, environmental, government relations, healthcare, insurance defense, litigation, labor & employment, OSHA & MSHA, mergers & acquisitions, real estate and taxation, to name but a few. Charleston is also home base for The Battle Group — Spilman's trial-ready strike force specializing in complex, high-stakes and information-intensive cases.

Whether in Charleston or any of the firm's seven locations, Spilman attorneys serve as an extension of your management team — working to prevent problems before they occur and guiding you carefully and successfully through the legal process.
