Slinde Nelson

Knowledgeable And Effective Business Counsel

Whatever stage your business is in – whether you run a large and well-established corporation or a recent startup still in the dream stage – we’ve likely been in similar circumstances ourselves. Before joining our firm, our attorneys bought, founded, managed, grew and sold businesses of their own.

We have law firm experience, but we also have real-world experience. So we understand what you need from a lawyer – and we know how to deliver it: Whether you need sound guidance through a transactional matter or aggressive representation through litigation, our goal is to protect your business.

Call 503-567-1234 for a brief, free consultation with our business lawyers. At Slinde Nelson, you will have a team of attorneys on your side who understand business law from your perspective. Our attorneys have firsthand experience launching a startup and owning and operating a business. We know what you need from a law firm because we have looked for the same qualities in our outside counsel.
