Smith Moore Leatherwood Adds to Charleston Corporate Team

January 4, 2011

Charleston, S.C. — Smith Moore Leatherwood is pleased to announce the addition of Michael J. Hickerson to the firm's Corporate Team in its Charleston office, which opened in April.

"We have been looking for opportunities to expand since we opened this past spring, but wanted to wait until we found the right attorney for both Smith Moore Leatherwood as a whole and the Charleston office specifically," said Bobby Pearce, co-partner in charge of the firm's Charleston office. "I look forward to having Michael in the office, as his background in corporate work will bring great experience and knowledge to the team."

With a B.A. from College of Charleston and a J.D. from Tulane University Law School (cum laude), Hickerson practices in the areas of financial services and general corporate practice work. He has advised borrowers and lenders in complex financial transactions involving syndications and participations, real estate lending, asset-based lending and debt restructuring. He has also advised businesses and their ownership groups in structuring and negotiating stock and asset sales and acquisitions, and in a variety of corporate matters, including reorganization, shareholder and operating agreements, joint ventures and general contractual matters.
