Gallivan White Boyd Community Service
GWB is a respected member of the Charleston, Charlotte, Columbia, and Greenville communities.
The firm takes an active role in professional, trade, and civic organizations.
GWB is proud of its history of leadership and contributions to the community and legal profession. The firm is a long-standing, respected member of professional and civic communities in North and South Carolina with many of the firm’s attorneys holding leadership positions in distinguished professional and civic organizations. For example, firm attorneys have served as President of the South Carolina Bar, President of South Carolina Defense Trial Attorneys Association, President of the Greenville County Bar, and Chair of the Greenville Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors.
GWB attorneys have also held leadership positions or have been significantly involved in the Federation of Defense and Corporate Counsel, United Way of Greenville County, United Way of the Midlands, Charlotte Chamber of Commerce, South Carolina Arts Foundation, and South Carolina Museum Commission. The firm encourages this type of individual involvement and looks for ways GWB can collectively become involved in resolving issues that affect its clients, profession, and community.
An additional way the firm gives back to the community is through pro bono legal work. GWB embraces pro bono work as an extremely rewarding opportunity which provides unique experiences for the firm’s lawyers.
GWB is proud of the pro bono leadership its lawyers display.
