Devan K. Flahive Joins Nelson Mullins as Partner in Firm’s Cleveland Office

CLEVELAND — Nelson Mullins Riley & Scarborough LLP is pleased to announce the addition of Devan K. Flahive, who is joining the firm’s growing Cleveland office as a partner.

Flahive is part of the firm’s Midwest Commercial Litigation Team and advises clients on regulatory and contract issues relative to energy generation and transmission infrastructure, including construction, operation, and compliance for projects certificated by the Ohio Power Siting Board (OPSB). Drawing on her considerable track record securing OPSB approvals for major utility facilities, she provides strategic insight to utilities and developers of energy projects in PJM Interconnection territory.

She also counsels upstream oil and gas operators, pipelines, chemical companies, and power marketers on a broad range of regulatory and litigation matters, practicing before state and federal courts, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, and the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio.

Flahive is a graduate of the Penn State University Dickinson School of Law and received her undergraduate education at Cornell University. She joins a growing team in Cleveland, as Nelson Mullins recently expanded with the opening of its office in the city in March 2022 before adding seven more partners to the firm’s Cleveland team in April of this year.

Established in 1897, Nelson Mullins is an AmLaw 100 firm of more than 1,000 attorneys, policy advisors and professionals, and with the addition of this Chicago office will have 33 offices in 17 states and Washington, D.C. For more information, visit
