Firm Overview

Business Law Attorneys in Portland & Seattle

An Introduction to Our Law Firm...

The Slinde Nelson Stanford partners emerged from large firms as refugees bent on delivering business and commercial litigation, real estate, and construction law solutions built on sound business judgment, rather than billable-hour requirements. The right attorney is put on the job the first time around. We will not pass your case off to green associates and double or triple charge you for a review or re-review of their work. We only bill you once, and we only bill you for what you need.

Slinde Nelson Stanford provides corporate clients and entrepreneurs with a highly unique alternative to the large-law firm experience.

Each firm alone served its markets exceedingly well. We know a lot — through lots of experience — about a few things:

We Know How To Resolve Disputes, and We Know How to Win Them

Slinde Nelson Stanford provides dispute-resolution solutions in a practical, client-driven manner. Traditional law firms too often view dispute resolution as a litigation billing machine. But that’s not right: dispute resolution does not necessarily include the cost of formal litigation.

The most effective dispute-resolution strategy is dispute avoidance. We give our clients strategies to avoid litigation. We streamline dispute-resolution procedures and maximize the potential for resolving conflict without the cost of protracted litigation.

We Know What It Takes to Run a Business

Because we have. And we offer more than strictly "legal" advice on starting or operating your business. Our unique experience allows us to advise you on the day-to-day practical demands of running it, too.

Our business is to understand your business. Our goal is to structure and pursue legal and business strategies that don't just prevent problems or maintain compliance — we want to help you advance your business goals.

Many of our clients run large, well-established businesses and corporations. They don't need our help getting off the ground. They're looking for a sophisticated alternative to high-cost, glacial-moving large law firms.

But many other clients are entrepreneurs, at or near the starting gate. We provide street-smart, solid business advice daily on things like distribution, scouting locations, licensing, employees, partnership agreements, market research . . . the list goes on.

And We Know Construction, Real Estate, and . . .

. . . Most of what business people need from time to time is answers and solutions.

We're seasoned attorneys who perform stellar work and are always ready when called upon — and we're a personal bunch to boot.

Attorneys at Slinde Nelson Stanford:

  • Have worked inside of businesses as either owners or counsel;
  • Have experience running business organizations;
  • Are not subject to aggressive billable-hour requirements; and
  • Return calls promptly, communicate regularly with clients and make ourselves accessible

All of us at Slinde Nelson Stanford are highly experienced individuals who represent our clients as we would expect to be represented ourselves. If you've had any experience with lawyers in the past, you'll probably agree that's pretty unique.
