Nelson Mullins Welcomes Doherty and Wiel

Attorneys Kevin Doherty and Cynthia Wiel joined the Tennessee-based firm Nelson Mullins Riley & Scarborough this week. Doherty and Wiel’s strong background in insurance regulation, particularly involving captives, will strengthen the firm’s insurance regulation practice in its Nashville office.

Doherty joined Nelson Mullins as a partner and brings his expertise in insurance regulation to the table. Perhaps best known for his work in rewriting the 2011 Tennessee captive insurance law, Doherty has particular emphasis in captives and other alternative insurance methods, as well as insurance transactions. He is also known for his experience representing clients in the entertainment industry through contracts and transactional deals. He is deeply familiar with all aspects of entertainment law and has worked with individuals on all ends of the music industry, including singers, publishers, writers, and music companies.

Speaking to his strong background in captive insurance, Doherty is currently the president and chairman of the Tennessee Captive Insurance Association. He is deeply involved in the Nashville community, participating regularly in organizations like Chamber of Commerce, Rotary Club, the Nashville Food Project, and youth hockey. Doherty was named “Best of the Bar” by the Nashville Business Journal and included in the ’07-’13 list of “The Best Lawyers in America” for the Insurance Law, Entertainment Law-Music category.

Ms. Wiels also joins Nelson Mullins’ Nashville office, serving as Of Counsel. Like Doherty, she brings a deep background in regulatory law in the areas of insurance regulation, business and transactions, health care, liquor regulation, and city utilities regulation. Like Doherty, she has particular expertise in captives, and currently serves as the co-chair of the Government Relations Committee in the Tennessee Captive Insurance Association. She has worked with both local and city officials, representing clients primarily on the business and corporate side.

Ms. Wiels’ expertise in regulatory law is particularly notable considering her experience working with members of the state legislature. For two years, she worked as a legislative assistant for then Tennessee Speaker of the House, Jimmy Naifeh. Having worked intimately from all sides of the drafting process, she is better able to advise her clients on the effects of state and local law.

In a news release, Larry Papel, the firm’s Manager Partner in Nashville, warmly welcomed the two newest members of the firm. “We welcome Kevin and Cynthia to the Firm and to our Nashville team and look forward to introducing them to our clients. Their experience adds to the Firm’s regulatory and healthcare practices and provides depth to our scope of client services.”

Nelson Mullins’ Nashville office is a relatively new branch of the firm. The office was opened in April 2012 and currently houses approximately 100 attorneys who concentrate on the firm’s work related to e-discovery.
