Nathan Green discovered an interest in law while taking a required course, legal environment of business, during his study of economics at Saint Louis University.
“I loved that class,” Green said. Students could contest exam answers and convince the teacher to award more points.
“You could argue your way from a low A to high A, or from a B to an A,” he said. It was a novel and fascinating concept to him.
After earning his bachelor’s degree, the Camden native returned in 2005 to his home state to attend the University of Arkansas at Little Rock William H. Bowen School of Law.
During that time, he served several months in 2007 as an intern for U.S. Sen. Blanche Lincoln’s office and became a law clerk at Plastiras Law Firm, where he later practiced estate planning and corporate and tax law until 2011.
That year, after a friend recommended he look at a public affairs career, Green started work in research and consulting at inVeritas. Four years later, he was elevated to the position of vice president of public relations and tasked with opening the firm’s office in Rogers.
Green’s wide-ranging work at inVeritas, which includes strategic planning, marketing, public policy work and campaign research, is all grounded by his intrinsic motivation to support others. “People come to you with an issue, and, whatever it is, I never want to say, ‘I can’t help you.’ I always try to think of a way I can help,” he said. “If I can’t, I try to find someone who can.”
Green is an advisory board member of Learning Disabilities Association of Arkansas and has done pro bono work for the organization.
