Two Callison Tighe members named among ‘Legal Elite’ for 2021

COLUMBIA, S.C. Columbia Business Monthly has named two Callison Tighe & Robinson attorneys to its Legal Elite of the Midlands list for 2021.

Members Rick Detwiler and Ian Duggan were both included for their practice in Business Litigation. Mr. Detwiler was also recognized in both 2019 and 2020. The list recognizes Midlands lawyers whom peers consider outstanding in their respective practice areas.

The publication’s selection process begins with a nomination from a peer. A vote of all active attorneys in the Midlands results in the final selection in each of 20 practice areas.

Mr. Detwiler is the managing member of the firm. With more than 35 years as a trial lawyer, his practice includes the areas of complex commercial litigation, serious personal injury, workplace accidents, and probate and trust litigation. He is also certified as a Circuit Court Mediator by the South Carolina Supreme Court.

Mr. Duggan is an experienced trial lawyer whose practice focuses on complex litigation. Much of his practice is devoted to representing individuals, businesses, and organizations in complex commercial matters, white-collar criminal defense, and whistleblower and false claims litigation. A former active-duty senior prosecutor in the Air Force who currently serves with the South Carolina Air National Guard, he continues to devote his time to representing uniform military personnel accused of wrongdoing.

The winners are highlighted in Columbia Business Monthly’s August edition and recognized at a reception.
