Nexsen Pruet’s Greenville office welcomed two new partners, Mark Bakker and Sarah Sloan Batson.
They both represent businesses and professionals in the areas of labor and employment law.
"Since the days of our namesake Julian Nexsen, our firm has prided itself on hiring lawyers who have 'integrity and skill,'" David Dubberly, ELL practice group chair, said. "Those words have never been more applicable because Mark and Sarah are highly regarded by their peers in the Upstate business and legal communities. They will be assets to our firm and clients."
Bakker graduated from the University of North Carolina School of Law and has a background as a clerk for both the Honorable Eugene E. Siler, Jr. on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit Court and the Honorable William B. Traxler, Jr. for the U.S. District Court of South Carolina. He started his law practice in 1996.
Batson graduated from the University of South Carolina Darla Moor School of Business and the University of South Carolina School of Law; she was valedictorian for both her undergraduate and law schools. She also has a background as a law clerk for the Honorable Dennis W. Shedd of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit.
Nexsen Pruet, founded in 1945, has more than 190 attorneys throughout eight offices in North Carolina and South Carolina.
