North Carolina - South Carolina Merger: Womble Carlyle expands

April 15, 2011 North Carolina firm Womble Carlyle Sandridge & Rice, with a headcount of 500 lawyers, has acquired 44-lawyer firm Buist Moore Smythe McGee of South Carolina.

Womble Carlyle chairman Keith Vaughan said that Womble Carlyle had been looking for a way to expand outside the manufacturing center of Greenville in order to cater to client needs elsewhere.

And the firm expects that the Charleston economy will grow with Boeing set to relocate some of its plants to the region and the Panana Canal port project slated for completion in three years.
