Nelson Mullins Statement on the Passing of Butler Derrick

“Butler was a friend and colleague of our Firm long before he joined us to help us open the Washington office in 2004,” said Nelson Mullins Managing Partner Jim Lehman. “Butler served the State of South Carolina admirably before becoming one of the most respected Congressmen in Washington. His folksy Southern charm and his understanding of how Congress works made Butler not only an effective representative of his clients, but a pleasure to know as a friend.

“Since opening the Washington office, Butler helped us grow in the nation’s capital, which today has more than 40 attorneys and policy advisors. Butler leaves a legacy of gentility and professionalism that won’t soon be forgotten on The Hill or at Nelson Mullins.”
