Raising the Bar Spotlight: Brad Rustin

S.C. Bar e-Blast

The S.C. Bar has recognized Greenville partner Brad Rustin in its Raising the Bar series. Rustin, chair of the Financial Regulation practice at Nelson Mullins, was recognized for his work on the Stride Funding and Flywheel Fund, a new nonprofit created to seek innovative solutions to America's student loan crisis. Nelson Mullins worked with Stanford Law School to launch the pilot program last month. The goal is to reduce the debt burden for graduates who pursue public service or other lower-income careers.

Rustin and his team from Nelson Mullins, including Neil Grayson, Liz Donaldson, Jeff Gurney, and Mark Miller, worked to develop the program. The fund will empower students to select careers focused on impact, mission, and interest rather than salary.
