Attorneys with Concrete Business Experience

Unique Portland Law Firm

What do you need from your legal team? Do you value attorneys who are part of your team, not just a monthly billing statement? Do you need attorneys who respond quickly?

Slinde Nelson Stanford was founded in 2008 by business lawyers with experience at Oregon's largest law firms and some serving as general counsel at large Oregon corporations. We are also business owners ourselves. After founding, growing and selling multiple businesses of our own, we know firsthand the frustration of working with firms more concerned with billable hours than with doing what is best for the client's business. We created the kind of firm we would like to hire for our businesses.

Our Practice

Slinde Nelson Stanford represents corporate clients, entrepreneurs and individuals in business law, including business and commercial litigation, real estate, construction law and employment law matters. We also represent individuals in asset protection, tax planning and disputes, estate planning and wealth management issues. We handle claims of financial abuse and other forms of elder abuse for individuals and their families.

Business and Commercial Litigation

We excel in complex litigation. Led by seasoned litigators Phil Nelson and Darian Stanford, our Portland business litigation attorneys are aggressive, determined and skilled advocates experienced in building compelling cases. Our practice is designed to help you achieve your litigation goals and get you back to the business of running your business.

Business and Corporate Law

Our business attorneys represent entrepreneurs, corporations, green and tech companies, franchisers and franchisees, and buyers and sellers of businesses large and small. We assist clients in every stage of the process, from startups and business formation to providing in-house counsel services, selling or distributing product, business exits and winding down operations.

Real Estate Law and Property Management

We assist developers and builders in all aspects of acquisition, development, financing, leasing, sale and everything in between. Led by firm founder Nicholas Slinde, former in-house counsel to a builder and developer, our real estate practice is flourishing. Our real estate attorneys can protect you in any transaction. We know how to identify your most important deal points and get the deal done.

Construction Litigation and Construction Defects

We represent design professionals, engineers, contractors, builders, developers and owners in construction litigation. We handle cases involving hotels, condominiums and apartment buildings, renovations, commercial shopping centers, and large mixed-use and residential developments. Our firm is able to handle any construction dispute, including cases involving construction defects and condominium law.

Employment Law

We routinely defend employers against allegations of improper conduct. Our goal is to minimize your exposure to liability and keep your operation running smoothly. Our experienced employment law attorneys handle a wide array of employment issues, from worker classification and employment policy to litigation and employment dispute resolution.

Estate Planning, Tax Planning, Asset Protection and Wealth Management

Business owners, entrepreneurs, executives and high net worth individuals have unique estate and tax planning issues. Our tax and estate planners will tailor individual solutions to your unique needs. Our breadth of knowledge allows us to swiftly and efficiently understand your issues and develop effective solutions.

Elder Law

We believe strongly in protecting the rights of our elderly population. Too often, they are taken advantage of, neglected and abused. We work diligently to vindicate elders' rights and hold wrongdoers accountable for their actions.
