At Slinde Nelson, we know real estate. Nicholas Slinde and the real estate group have spent the past decade helping individuals and businesses manage their real estate needs. As in-house counsel and vice president of development for a regional builder/developer, Mr. Slinde learned the realities of the real estate business from the client's perspective. It is this unique understanding and perspective that truly define us as real estate attorneys.

Our Real Estate Practice

Our real estate practice serves Portland clients in all phases of commercial development and management, residential development, commercial acquisitions and sales, financing and deal structure, and restructure/workout.

Ours is a team of Portland real estate lawyers who are deal makers, not deal breakers. We identify your deal points, we secure them, we protect you and we ink the deal. Deal obstruction may be the norm at your old law firm, but it won’t be the experience you have at Slinde Nelson.

We know what a good real estate deal looks like and we know how to document it. When a real estate deal has gone bad, we know how to litigate your investment claims or negotiate workout arrangements with lenders.

Serving a Wide Range of Real Estate Needs

Our firm offers the experience and skill to handle almost any real estate concern. We represent banks in the collection of unpaid debts and help them resolve troubled assets. We help investors manage distressed properties and loan portfolios. We represent borrowers in negotiating workouts with public and private lenders. We also defend judicial and nonjudicial foreclosures.

In addition to real estate transactions, our team resolves real estate and construction disputes in mediation, arbitration, and state and federal court. We also have particular experience litigating securities and other claims related to problem real estate investments.
