Nelson Block reached a high point in his career during his fourth year of practice, at the closing of a large subdivision sale that the parties had been negotiating for weeks. The senior lawyer on the other side, a man much older than Nelson, shook his hand and said, "Young man, I've enjoyed watching you work."

Nelson assists his clients in creating and implementing strategies for their business transactions. For more than 40 years, Nelson has applied his analysis, drafting and negotiation skills to hundreds of real estate, finance and corporate matters, including turnarounds and workouts. His clients include emerging businesses, Fortune 500 companies, financial institutions, charities and governments.

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.

Operators

AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
