Portland Business Law & Commercial Litigation Lawyer


Every so often, you stumble upon something really unique.

Slinde Nelson Stanford is a very different kind of law firm. We’re a full-service firm that provides a suite of legal solutions for every business owner and C-level executive. What sets us apart, though, is the way in which our lawyers — somewhat unlike those toiling in most other firms — deliver business and legal services. Our referral lists, retention rates, testimonials, and client surveys indicate we’re certainly doing something right.

Large-Firm Experience, Boutique Delivery, Small-Firm Service

Our Portland & Seattle business law attorneys founded, managed, sold and invested in businesses of their own. Given that experience, we know what our clients want, need and expect from a business lawyer. More importantly, we know how they want it delivered.

  • We have worked inside of businesses, as owners and counsel.
  • We are not subject to aggressive billable-hour requirements like lawyers at large firms, so we don't waste time on issues that aren't really there.
  • We do not pass cases off to inexperienced associates and double or triple charge for a review of their work.
  • We respond promptly to messages — usually within the same business day.
  • We don't do work that our clients don't need.

And how unique is that? A legal team with real-world experience delivering large-firm services with the client foremost in mind. That's pretty different.

  • You want the reliability, expertise, and experience provided by the largest firms —and the attendant esteem they garner.
  • But you also want to pay reasonable rates, and pay them to lawyers who have an in-depth understanding of your industry as a whole and your business in particular.
  • And you want to build a relationship with your attorney and the law firm staff, so you can be confident that they are all aware of your situation and truly care about your objectives.
