Columbia Metropolitan Magazine
Columbia Metropolitan Magazine profiled partner William Hubbard for the passion that has always driven his career: global justice. Hubbard has accomplished vast strides with this drive, and he told Columbia Metropolitan that he doesn't plan on slowing anytime soon.
Hubbard was the 17th lawyer to join Nelson Mullins Riley & Scarborough. Later, he would go on to be the first South Carolinian to lead the American Bar Association. Over the span of his career, he has been awarded two of South Carolina's highest accolades — an Honorary Doctor of Laws from USC and the Order of the Palmetto, the highest civilian award given by the state's governor. Now, Hubbard practices complex business litigation and chairs the Board of Directors of The World Justice Project, an organization meant to strengthen the rule of law worldwide.
In reflecting on the Firm's growth, Hubbard told Columbia Metropolitan that he's proud to have played a part. “Our firm hired a number of people who have turned out to be really good lawyers and leaders for the firm, leaders in the community, and leaders at the bar," he said. "Seeing the firm evolve from a Columbia firm to a truly national firm, handling the most sophisticated matters, and contributing to that as a team leader and a group leader in the firm has been a privilege. I am so grateful to have been part of such a collegial and supportive firm.”
