Nelson Mullins Riley & Scarborough LLP has selected Atlanta associate Jenaé Moxie and Fort Lauderdale associate Maria A. Penuela as members of the 2021 class of Pathfinders. The Leadership Council on Legal Diversity’s (LCLD) Pathfinder Program is designed for diverse, high-potential, early-career attorneys at LCLD member organizations.
Moxie focuses her practice in the areas of mergers and acquisitions, private equity, venture capital, and general corporate governance. She has been named in The Best Lawyers in America® Ones to Watch in the area of Corporate Law for 2021.
