Brett Hubler is a Charleston aficionado first; corporate lawyer second. There may be other things ahead of Charleston, and today we learn what those may be. However, Brett’s love for Charleston can be traced back, at least in part, to his service to Senator Chip Campsen. Before ascending corporate lawyer at Troutman Sanders, Brett worked in the South Carolina State Legislature. Today, Brett’s corporate work falls in a few buckets: joint ventures; venture capital; growth equity; and PE funds.
Brett’s life work is his wife, his daughter, and horses. He’s also not afraid to drink his liquor out of a ketchup bottle, at least when in DC. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Brett’s love of horses has taken him to the Kentuck Derby.
For a corporate lawyer whose work could confine him, how and where does Brett find his escape? How would Brett characterize the difference between practicing law in North Carolina and South Carolina? And what’s the most underappreciated human element of being a sophisticated deal lawyer? Tell us all the things, all the things you’re willing to tell.
