Turner Padget

Turner Padget has provided insurance defense services to the insurance industry for almost ninety years.  From the beach to the mountains, Turner Padget has South Carolina covered.  With offices strategically located across the state, in Charleston, Columbia, Florence, Greenville and Myrtle Beach, it serves its clients both efficiently and effectively.  Widely known for its practical approach to the law, the firm and its attorneys have earned national recognition for their success and experience across South Carolina, including Chambers USA, Benchmark Litigation, A.M. Best, U.S. News & World Report, Best Lawyers and Super Lawyers.

At the heart of Turner Padget is its experience in the courtroom with several of its lawyers having 50 or more jury trials and some with 100 plus. The firm’s trial experience is complimented by its equally strong experience in defending cases arising from the professional lines of insurance.  Its employment practice, which is led by Certified Specialists in Employment and Labor Law, is experienced in defending all types of employment claims arising under federal or state law. Equally strong is its professional negligence team, with many decades experience in providing a defense to attorneys, accountants, healthcare professionals, agents and brokers, real estate professionals, and other miscellaneous professionals.  Turner Padget, likewise, has substantial experience in defending a wide variety of claims, for both for profit and not for profit entities, arising in the context of a claim on a directors and officers liability policy.  

Turner Padget has a strong insurance defense practice in all other areas as well, including construction, products liability, personal injury, trucking and transportation, and intellectual property.  It also provides assistance with coverage issues and bad faith claims.

Recognizing that only a few cases are tried and virtually every case in South Carolina state and federal courts is subject to mandatory mediation, the firm has also developed an expertise in dispute resolution with several of its lawyers being certified as mediators. This experience helps its attorneys not only help others resolve their disputes, but also helps them more effectively assist the firm’s client in evaluating and negotiating resolutions to disputed matters.
