MSI's South Carolina and Georgia law member Smith Moore Leatherwood LLP is pleased to announce that the firm has been recognised in Chambers High Net Worth 2017 (HNW) for South Carolina. Additionally, partner J. Tod Hyche has been honored as a “Leader in the Field” in South Carolina for Private Wealth Law.

Chambers and Partners, based in London, publishes annual rankings of leading lawyers and law firms across the world. Results are obtained through hours of research and thousands of interviews with clients and lawyers, with greater weight given to the views of clients. The qualities on which the rankings are assessed include technical legal ability, professional conduct, client service, commercial astuteness, diligence, commitment and other qualities highly valued by clients.

Chambers HNW is the publisher’s first guide specifically aimed at the international private wealth market. The guide covers private wealth management work and related specialisms in key jurisdictions around the world, featuring in-depth editorial about the leading lawyers and law firms for wealthy individuals and families.

Since 1995, Hyche has practiced at Smith Moore Leatherwood in the wealth transfer planning area. His work encompasses all aspects of estate, gift and generation-skipping transfer tax planning. In the trusts and estates area, he represents trustees, personal representatives and beneficiaries during the administration process, and he is involved with the decanting, modification, reformation and termination of irrevocable trusts. From 2008 until 2017, Hyche served as a member of the firm’s management committee and was the partner-in-charge of the Greenville office.

Hyche received his bachelor’s degree from Furman University, his juris doctor from the Cumberland School of Law at Samford University, and his master of laws in taxation from the University of Florida.
