Two attorneys with extensive experience in regulatory issues facing financial services companies have joined Nelson Mullins Riley & Scarborough LLP as part of its Financial Services Group in the Washington, D.C. office.

Lawrence D. Kaplan has joined the Firm as a partner and will focus on the regulatory issues facing banks, thrifts, and insurance, mortgage and other specialty financial companies. Janis F. Kerns has joined the Firm as of counsel and will focus on issues facing mutual funds, business development companies, investment advisers, broker-dealers and entities seeking to avoid regulation under the Investment Company Act of 1940.

“The addition of Larry and Janis will help expand our financial services practice in D.C. and help us meet new and existing client needs firmwide,” said Jon Talcott, the partner who leads Nelson Mullins’ Washington Financial Services Group. “Larry Kaplan and Janis Kerns are both well-known and respected regulatory attorneys, and we are excited that they are joining Nelson Mullins.”

Mr. Kaplan advises financial institutions and financial services company clients on all aspects of bank regulatory issues, with an emphasis on corporate structuring, control, enforcement and the electronic provision of financial services. He represents traditional and nontraditional financial services holding companies and financial institutions before federal and state bank regulatory agencies on a variety of matters, including structural, operational and authority issues. He has extensive experience with issues pertaining to payment networks and electronic funds transfers. Mr. Kaplan has significant experience representing clients on enforcement matters, and closely monitors regulatory initiatives and proposed legislation affecting the financial services industry.

Before joining Nelson Mullins, Mr. Kaplan served as a senior attorney in the chief counsel’s office at the Office of Thrift Supervision/Federal Home Loan Bank Board, and practiced at two other leading Washington, D.C. law firms.

He earned his J.D. from the National Law Center of the George Washington University in 1987, and an A.B. degree, with distinction, in 1984 from The University of Michigan.

Ms. Kerns, a former senior counsel in the Division of Investment Management of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, focuses her practice on investment and asset management services, including the representation of mutual funds, business development companies, investment advisers and broker/dealers.

Her arrival marks the establishment of the Firm's new Investment Management Practice, which offers expertise in the counseling of public and private investment companies, including mutual funds and business development companies, investment advisers, unregistered private investment vehicles and others in the investment management industry. The practice advises clients on all aspects of investment management activities, including disclosure under the federal securities laws, regulatory compliance and avoidance of regulation, corporate governance, and transactional, tax and contract matters.

A former in-house counsel for PaineWebber Inc. who also practiced with another leading Washington, D.C. law firm, Ms. Kerns has extensive experience with the registration and operation of public and private investment companies. She advises clients on a wide variety of matters relating to the development and offering of investment products and services, as impacted by the Investment Company Act of 1940, the Investment Advisers Act, the Securities Act of 1933, and the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Her practice also includes experience with broker/dealer sales practice and compliance matters and the representation of public companies in various matters before the SEC and the NASD, ranging from domestic and foreign general corporate matters to initial listing and continuing qualification matters in the over-the-counter markets.

Ms. Kerns earned her J.D. from the Washington College of Law at The American University in 1994, where she was associate articles editor of The Administrative Law Journal. She earned her B.A. degree in Chemistry from Wake Forest University in 1985.

Nelson Mullins, established in 1897, has more than 360 attorneys practicing from offices in Atlanta, Boston, Charleston, Charlotte, Columbia, Greenville, Myrtle Beach, Raleigh, Washington and Winston-Salem. For more information on the Firm, go to www.nelsonmullins.com, or call (803) 255-9794, (803) 255-9280 or (202) 712-2800.

For her significant contributions to the Firm and professional community, Tammie Pope of Columbia has received the 2006 Jean D. Nunn Excellence in Leadership Award from Nelson Mullins Riley & Scarborough LLP.

Ms. Pope, a paralegal coordinator with the Firm, earlier this year received the Palmetto Paralegal Association’s Paralegal of the Year Award. Both nominations noted her history of pro bono work, her service as mentor for new paralegals and as a trainer for project assistants, many of whom became paralegals with her assistance.

For the past three years, Ms. Pope has served as the Firm’s principal investigator into the medical treatment provided to mentally ill inmates in South Carolina prisons. The investigation required interviewing dozens of severely mentally ill prisoners, often under poor conditions. As a result of her work, Nelson Mullins is pursuing a class action against the S.C. Department of Corrections and the S.C. General Assembly.

The award is named for Nelson Mullins paralegal Jean D. Nunn for her dedication to client service, personal and professional ethics, recognition as a leader by her peers, and her continuing contributions to the paralegal program, the Firm and the legal profession.

Also, recipients of the 2005 E.W. Mullins Paralegal Pro Bono Awards are:
Carrie Shillingford of Charleston for her work in the representation of an inmate claiming excessive force and unreasonable seizure in his arrest. When the case went to a new attorney, Ms. Shillingford briefed the attorney on the case merits and witnesses, prepared exhibits, located witnesses, and assisted in depositions and court filings.
Yvonne Koerner of Myrtle Beach for her work with Habitat for Humanity of Horry County, with at least 14 homeowner closings for families and preparing documents for three properties for future homes. “Yvonne has gone the extra mile in researching unusual homebuyer problems for Habitat, and been willing to lend her expertise on top of an already heavy work load,” according to the Habitat executive director.
Jennifer Conrick of Columbia for her pro bono work, including the litigation against the S.C. Department of Juvenile Justice and representation of two death row inmates in post conviction proceedings. For the last three years, she has been involved with the lawsuit against the S.C. Department of Corrections seeking adequate medical treatment for mentally ill inmates.

Nelson Mullins, established in 1897, has more than 360 attorneys practicing from offices in Atlanta, Boston, Charleston, Charlotte, Columbia, Greenville, Myrtle Beach, Raleigh, Washington and Winston-Salem. For more information on the Firm, go to www.nelsonmullins.com, or call (803) 255-9794 or (803) 255-9280.
