Lancaster-based Saxton & Stump has completed its merger with Charleston, S.C.-based law firm Spitz & Neville.
The five Spitz & Neville attorneys will remain at the Charleston office which is now Saxton & Stump’s South Carolina.
Spitz & Neville continued doing business under its old name after the partnership was announced in June 2021. Throughout the last year of transition, the office has continued integrating technical infrastructure and making significant hires, including Elizabeth Palmer as a shareholder, Jacqueline Egan as a senior counsel and Eli Lachenman as an associate.
“We’re extremely pleased to be able to officially bring the Saxton & Stump name to South Carolina,” Saxton & Stump CEO James W. Saxton said. “It is an important step in our strategic plans for our firm to bring our full platform to South Carolina. We are honored to build on Steve Spitz and Ryan Neville’s excellent foundation through the addition of Beth Palmer and we look forward to the opportunities we can create for clients together.”
The merged firms will provide mergers and acquisitions, employee benefits and executive compensation, information privacy and cybersecurity, intellectual property, internal investigations, attorney and judicial ethics and discipline, white collar defense, and federal tax law, the company said.
In addition to the legal services, the former firm’s clients have access to comprehensive professional services through Saxton & Stump’s affiliate companies including Granite GRC Consulting, Granite HR Consulting, Granite Creative Group, and Optimal Dispute Resolutions.
