Pacolet Milliken, located in Greenville, SC, is a sophisticated, family-owned investment company with a multi-generational investment horizon. Pacolet operates through two divisions: Real Estate and Energy/Infrastructure. Pacolet manages these two divisions holistically, balancing value accretion vs. near-term cash flows, stabilized assets vs. development projects, and organic growth vs. acquisitions, all in a manner designed to meet shareholder objectives.
Nexsen Pruet and Pacolet Milliken are both committed to diversity in our professions, as well as fostering an inclusive workplace. As part of that commitment, we have partnered in our efforts to identify and provide diverse law school students with access to opportunities that will aid in their development as legal professionals, regardless of race, color, creed, religion, gender, sexuality, disability, or any other social markers of difference. Therefore, to advance our commitment, Nexsen Pruet and Pacolet Milliken have established a combined Nexsen Pruet | Pacolet Milliken Diversity Summer Program.
The Nexsen Pruet | Pacolet Milliken Diversity Summer Program is awarded to one underrepresented or minority law student who is a 1L that is enrolled at an ABA-accredited law school. The program recipient will split their time evenly between Nexsen Pruet and Pacolet Milliken (Greenville, SC locations) for a total of ten weeks during the summer of 2022. The objective is to provide students both a law firm experience and exposure to a corporate in-house environment.
Eligibility for the Nexsen Pruet | Pacolet Milliken Diversity Summer Program requires the recipient to submit an application and participate in an interview process with both businesses.
