Wyche, P.A. (“Wyche”) has practiced law and served the community for 95 years. We have participated in landmark litigation, served as counsel on cutting-edge transactions and provided community leadership that has helped to drive and shape our region’s success.
Wyche lawyers combine legal skills developed at the nation’s leading law schools with a thorough knowledge of the community and the state.

Because of our talented lawyers, deep local ties and unique firm culture, Wyche is in a class of its own among law firms in South Carolina. Wyche and its lawyers are continuously ranked by experts and peers as the best in South Carolina. The 2016 issue of South Carolina Super Lawyers recognizes 17 Wyche lawyers. More than 80 percent of the firm members were also included in the 2017 edition of The Best Lawyers in America©. In addition, Chambers USA 2016 singles out Wyche attorneys as leading lawyers 13 times in its guide and recognizes Wyche as a leading firm in Corporate/M&A, Environment, Labor and Employment; Litigation, and Real Estate for South Carolina.
