William P. “Bill” McElveen Jr. has been re-elected to serve a second term as chairman of the Adams and Reese Executive Committee.
The six-partner Executive Committee oversees the strategic operations of the firm as well as its attorneys and staff. Adams and Reese has nearly 280 attorneys and advisers in 16 offices across 15 markets throughout the southern United States.
“I am honored to serve the firm in this role again in 2017,” McElveen said. “I look forward to working closely with my partners, our attorneys and the firm’s professional staff to ensure that we continue offering the highest level of representation and service to our clients.”
McElveen, who was elected to chair the committee in January 2016, is the former managing shareholder of Ellis Lawhorne, which merged with Adams and Reese in 2013.
Practicing law since 1984, McElveen has a diverse real estate, banking and financial services practice in Columbia and the region. He also serves in the Corporate, Banking and Securities Section and the Real Estate Practices Section of the South Carolina Bar.
