South Carolina’s largest law firm has grown a bit more with the completion of a merger with Florida-based firm Broad and Cassel on Aug. 1.
The new firm will be known as Nelson Mullins Broad and Cassel in Florida, while retaining the name Nelson Mullins Riley & Scarborough elsewhere.
The combined firm will have 750 attorneys and other employees working in 25 offices in 11 states and Washington D.C.
“We are already seeing the benefits to the clients of both firms of our added capabilities, enhanced practices and broader geographic reach,” Nelson Mullins managing partner Jim Lehman said in a news release.
Lehman will continue serving as the managing partner of the combined firm while former Broad and Cassel Chairman C. David Brown II becomes a voting member of the firm’s executive committee.
“We are excited about working together now that the combination is complete,” Brown said.
