Nancy brings two decades of diverse legal and business experience to her work with OGC. Nancy’s legal perspective is informed by her unique experience outside the legal realm, from her time working for the Walt Disney Company to roles in state politics, in the not–for–profit sector, and with a management consulting practice focused on assisting businesses with international expansion. A pragmatist, Nancy has a passion for efficiency and believes that top-quality legal advice adds real value to a client’s bottom line.
As a corporate attorney at Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP, Nancy led deal teams for a variety of complex business transactions, including venture and private equity financings, M&A, and joint ventures. While at Skadden, she often helped early–stage clients solve problems, mitigate risk, and navigate myriad commercial transactions, effectively operating as de facto general counsel for several pre–IPO companies.
Since leaving the world of big firm law, Nancy has become a seasoned advisor to companies seeking help with commercial agreements, complex business transactions, and M&A, and counseling clients looking for legal advice from a business–minded lawyer who understands their issues and speaks their language. Nancy is admitted to practice in Oregon and California (inactive).
A native Oregonian, Nancy is also an avid explorer, having traveled to nearly 50 countries and spent several years living in Singapore. When she’s not volunteering at her kids’ schools or with various not–for–profits, you might find her kayaking the Deschutes, exploring Forest Park, or squeezing in a tennis match.
