BRADENTON, Fla. — Columbia, S.C.-based Pope Zeigler LLC has hired Larry Flynn to work out of the law firm's newly established office in Spartanburg.
Flynn will work of counsel in the government law practice. Most recently he was with Lister, Flynn & Kelly, PA, in Spartanburg.
With more than 35 years' experience in public sector law with a general civil practice, Flynn has worked with business clients, municipalities, water districts, and electric cooperatives in South Carolina, according to Pope.
"I am really excited about joining Pope Zeigler because the firm can provide knowledge, experience, and resources that will benefit my existing clients as well as give me an opportunity to support Pope Zeigler's work in the upstate," Flynn said.
He received bachelor's and law degrees from the University of South Carolina, and attained certification as a mediator and arbitrator from the South Carolina Bar. He is also a planning commission instructor.
Flynn serves as chairman and trustee of Spartanburg County School District Seven, and is a member of the advisory board of the Palmetto Bank, and a 30-year member of the Spartanburg Rotary Club.
He is also a member of the South Carolina Bar's "Memory Hold the Door" committee, which honors deceased lawyers and judges who provided distinguished service to the public and the Bar, according to the Bar's website.
