June 7, 2019
In an interview with Law360, tax lawyer Sabrina Conyers discusses moving from an accounting firm to Nelson Mullins Riley & Scarborough’s Charlotte office.
“After four-and-a-half years, I realized I really love practicing law, and you can’t do that at an accounting firm,” Conyers told Law360 Friday. “My highest and best use, I knew, was returning to private practice.”
Wells Hall, leader of the firm's tax and benefits group, said Nelson Mullins has grown very rapidly and has increasing opportunities in the corporate space. Hall praised Conyers’ addition to the group, saying she had improved the firm’s capabilities to put qualified personnel on high-value transactions.
Conyers also noted Nelson Mullins’ diversity, saying that she had been looking for “not just a position in tax where I could be elevated to partnership, but also a firm that valued diversity.”
“When it came to the firm, I was focused on looking at a firm that had a sophisticated corporate practice, which leads to sophisticated tax work,” Conyers said, noting that her discussions with the firm had not necessarily focused on diversity, but had been centered around her skill set first.
