CHARLESTON – Jackson Kelly is pleased to welcome April Min back to the firm as a member in the Morgantown office.
Min returns to the firm after serving as Associate Vice President for Legal Affairs and General Counsel at West Virginia University.
During her tenure as General Counsel at WVU, Min was an integral part of President E. Gordon Gee’s senior management team, providing advice and counsel to the president, the university’s senior officers, faculty, and the Board of Governors. Min managed the delivery of legal services by the university’s staff attorneys, as well as overseeing and supervising the work of numerous state and national law firms.
Min joins the firm’s Higher Education Industry Group, made up of lawyers who routinely represent institutions of higher education in a wide variety of matters including employment, governance, litigation, intellectual property, student affairs, contracts and grants, and regulatory compliance.
“Adding April to our group brings yet another aspect to the services we can offer our clients: the perspective of having been in the midst of the issues dealt with every day by colleges and universities, and importantly, knowing how to solve them,” said Nathan Stone, leader of the firm’s Higher Education Industry Group. “We look forward to utilizing the unique skills April offers as a former higher education General Counsel.”
In addition to her work in the higher education realm, Min also provides representation and consultation on a wide variety of issues affecting corporations and commercial entities, and maintains a diverse litigation practice.
Prior to her work at WVU, Min served as the Assistant General Counsel for International Coal Group, Inc., then the only publicly-traded company based in West Virginia, after having previously spent nine years with Jackson Kelly.
