Staff Report From South Carolina CEO

Thursday, October 17th, 2019

Six Nelson Mullins Riley & Scarborough LLP attorneys based in Charleston have been named to Charleston Business Magazine’s “Legal Elite of the Lowcountry” in five practice areas. The attorneys and their practices are:

Merritt G. Abney, Commercial Real Estate

E. Bart Daniel, Criminal Law

Jennifer Williams Davis, Tax and Estate

John Hagerty, Banking and Finance, Commercial Real Estate

Wendy Wilkie Parker, Government and Environmental Law

Newman Jackson Smith, Government And Environmental Law

The magazine invites attorneys to vote on who, in their opinion, are the top lawyers in 20 different categories. Respondents could nominate lawyers in their firms, but for each in-firm lawyer, there had to be an out-of-firm lawyer nominated, although not necessarily in the same practice area, according to Integrated Media Publishing, which produces Charleston Business Magazine.
