Rob Tyson, of Sowell Gray Stepp & Laffitte, LLC, has been selected to serve a term in the South Carolina Bar House of Delegates.

The House of Delegates meets at least twice a year and establishes policy for the Bar. Tyson, whose practice areas are regulatory and administrative law, will begin his two-year term July 1.

“We’re pleased that Rob’s peers have selected him to serve in this important capacity,” Sowell Gray Managing Partner Cal Watson said. “His service in this important area reflects his – and Sowell Gray’s – commitment to the Bar, its principles and its programs.”

Tyson is a graduate of the University of Tennessee and the University of Mississippi School of Law. He joined Sowell Gray in 2001. He also serves as a member of the Richland One School Board.
