In January 1897, attorney P.H. Nelson left his position as solicitor of the Fifth Judicial Circuit to set up a private law practice in Columbia, S.C. The State newspaper contained a short but prescient news item on Jan. 26 about the endeavor, which noted that "the new firm should meet with great success."
And they were right. Today, Nelson Mullins Riley & Scarborough LLP offers legal services in 15 states and the District of Columbia from 31 offices with 930+ attorneys, policy advisors, and professionals. It is the 71st largest law firm in the nation based on 2021 gross revenues, according to The American Lawyer’s Am Law 100, a legal news organization that tracks law firm growth.
Throughout 2022, Nelson Mullins will be sharing seminal events from its history that highlight its growth from a one-man firm in 1897 to where we are today. Click here to learn more.

Nelson Mullins represented longtime client Greenlight® Financial Technology, Inc., a fintech company designed to help parents raise financially smart kids, in its $215 million Series C funding. The round was led by Canapi Ventures and TTV Capital with participation from new investors BOND, DST Global, Goodwater Capital, and Fin VC along with Greenlight's first institutional investor Relay Ventures.
In the announcement of the transaction, founder and CEO of Greenlight Tim Sheehan, said, "I have four kids of my own and learned that more parents needed help doing this. Parents are so busy, and personal finance is not taught in schools, so we fill this void. Our goal is for everyone to grow up financially savvy, no matter how much their parents know.”
The Nelson Mullins team was led by Doug Spear, Paul Rothstein, Brian Gillespie, and Sadie Short, with assistance from Denise Gunter, Colleen Kline, Wells Hall, Drew Hermiller, Sabrina Conyers, Jeff Perry, Sue Stoffer and Ed Rubinoff. Nelson Mullins has proudly represented Greenlight in all of its financings since inception.
