Nexsen Pruet is pleased to announce that former Assistant U.S. Attorney Mark Moore has joined the Columbia office. Moore joins the firm’s White-Collar Criminal Defense Team led by Billy Wilkins, former Chief Judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit.
“While Mark has made a number of headlines in his former career as a federal prosecutor, that is not why Nexsen Pruet recruited him to join the firm,” said John Sowards, Nexsen Pruet’s Board Chairman. “Mark is ideally suited to advise clients about the effects of complex federal laws and regulations on their industries. If someone is accused of criminal wrongdoing, Mark has the experience to provide proactive and vigorous representation they need, but he also helps professionals avoid pitfalls as they navigate the maze of issues confronting businesses today.”
For more than twenty-five years, Moore was a prosecutor in South Carolina, serving an Assistant Solicitor in Charleston before joining the United States Attorney’s Office in Columbia in 1989. Nexsen Pruet clients will benefit from what Moore learned while handling thousands of cases - trying more than seventy-five to jury verdict.
“To help our clients succeed, we must keep them out of trouble. This is precisely why Nexsen Pruet hired Billy Wilkins and established our White-Collar Criminal Defense Team in 2008,” says Val Stieglitz, the Business Litigation Practice Group Chair. “He laid the foundation and continues to vigorously defend his clients. Thanks to that hard work, we have been attracting attorneys with top-notch credentials.”
Moore is the latest addition to the White-Collar Criminal Defense Team made up of Dan Boyce, a former assistant U.S. Attorney in Raleigh; James Galyean, a former assistant U.S. Attorney in Greenville; and Will Terpening a veteran white-collar defense attorney in Charlotte.
