We appreciated her knowledge and management of a complex legal process. Her broad experience with the legal issues presented by investment firms, growing technology companies, and partnerships, from structuring to contracts to conflict management and resolution, was very helpful.

"Nancy has represented our rapidly growing engineering and construction management firm from its formation eight years ago. As our outside general counsel, she has handled a variety of legal issues along the way and provided helpful guidance on the strategic growth and structure of the company and its affiliates. Her background in corporate structural and transaction work as well as litigation enabled her to resolve a disparate number of issues efficiently and effectively. Knows more about finance than many attorneys and, through her work with different sized businesses, the business case for pursuing legal options such that she is able to weave that into her legal advice in unique and advantageous ways. Knowledgeable and professional. Responsive and easy to communicate with. Results oriented, diligent, and clear. A pragmatic, professional approach to the business priorities and the financial objectives with regard to the law."
