Attorneys Harry Lightsey and Sally Rogers have joined the public policy and governmental affairs group of the Nexsen Pruet law firm.
“The way business and politics interact these days, our clients have an unprecedented need for representation when matters come up before the legislature and regulatory agencies,” said Coble, who co-chairs the public policy group after serving as mayor for 20 years. “Harry and Sally have both been working at the intersection of business and law and will provide tremendous value to the businesses and individuals we serve.”
For three decades, Lightsey has worked as an attorney and executive, including as South Carolina and Southeast region president for BellSouth and AT&T. He is on the boards of directors for the South Carolina Chamber of Commerce and the South Carolina Higher Education Foundation.
Rogers represents businesses and professionals before regulatory agencies and at the South Carolina State House. She serves as both counsel and lobbyist on environmental and health care matters.
Rogers also joins Coble and Stephanie Yarbrough as registered lobbyists.
The North Carolina branch of the firm’s public policy and governmental affairs group is led by former Gov. James E. Holshouser and former assistant commerce secretary Ernie Pearson.
