Nexsen Pruet announced today that the firm’s Columbia office has completed its move to the new First Citizens Center at 1230 Main St., Suite 700.

The move involved more than 200 people, and technology systems which support the firm’s seven offices located throughout North and South Carolina.

“Considering we’d been in our previous location for almost 20 years, the relocation came off pretty seamlessly,” said W. Leighton Lord III, Chairman of the Board of Nexsen Pruet. “Nobody missed a beat, and we’re really happy to be in a place that will accommodate our growth, deliver some significant technological advantages, and allow us to dedicate more space for clients.”

The First Citizens Center, completed in 2006, represents a significant investment in downtown Columbia. It includes a nine-story tower and a plaza space, as well as 170,000 square feet of office space. The bank's executive offices, its Columbia Main office, and several business lines and operations departments are housed there.

"First Citizens has built a fantastic building,” said Lord. “The look of the building fits wonderfully into the downtown landscape, and the outside plaza is a beautiful addition to the area. We are proud to be a tenant."

And like Nexsen Pruet, First Citizens has deep roots in the Carolinas. For close to 100 years, First Citizens Bank and Trust has served residents and businesses in South Carolina. "We warmly welcome our friends at Nexsen Pruet to the First Citizens Center,” said Jim Apple, Chairman and CEO of First Citizens. "Our shared roots in the community makes their presence a great fit and we are delighted they will be our neighbors."

Nexsen Pruet occupies part of the fourth floor and all of the fifth, sixth, and seventh floors in the First Citizens building.

Kirsten E. Small, who served as senior law clerk for the Honorable William W. Wilkins, Chief Judge of the U.S. Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals, has joined Nexsen Pruet’s Greenville office and will help to expand the firm’s appellate practice in state and federal courts.

Small served with Judge Wilkins in 1994-1995 before assuming the senior clerk position, which she has held since 1996. She also clerked with Fourth Circuit Judge Karen Williams for a year. Her experience touches on a number of areas, including commercial litigation, labor and employment, and alternative dispute resolution.

“Kirsten has a terrific understanding of the appellate process,” said board member, David Gossett, of Nexsen Pruet’s Greenville office. “She’s seen it from the inside, and knows how to prepare, handle, and argue an appeal.”

Small earned her undergraduate degree from Whitman College in Walla Walla, Washington, and her law degree from the Georgetown University Law Center in Washington, D.C.
