Experienced Real Estate And Construction Lawyers
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.
Ours is a team of 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 good real estate deals look like and we know how to document them. When a real estate deal goes bad, we know how to litigate your real estate investment claims or negotiate workout arrangements with lenders.
