Former US Ambassador to Canada David Wilkin’s affiliation with Nelson Mullins Riley & Scarborough continues to reap benefits for the Columbia, SC-based law firm.
The Canadian province of Saskatchewan recently announced that it had signed a contract with Nelson Mullins for media relations services in the US. Nelson Mullins already provides Saskatchewan with strategic and legal advice.
The new contract, signed by Wilkins, a partner with Nelson Mullins, runs from Aug. 1, 2009, to Aug. 1, 2010. It’s valued at $144,000.
Wilkins, the former speaker of SC House of Representatives, stepped down as US Ambassador to Canada earlier this year.
In addition to his work with Nelson Mullins, Wilkins is active with Clemson University. Earlier this month, he was unanimously elected chairman of the Clemson board of trustees, beginning a two-year term.
