Areas of Law

Areas of Law Description

Slinde Nelson Stanford has concrete experience in the business world, including the following areas:

- Business Start-Ups

Besides being lawyers, we've been much like you. We've founded, grown, managed, expanded, invested in, counseled and sold businesses of our own. So we can't help but to offer more than strictly "legal" advice on starting up your business. We will advise you on the day-to-day practical demands of running it, too. We genuinely enjoy helping our clients succeed.

- Business and Commercial Litigation

Our litigation department has built a remarkable record of success in recent years and has a proven track record in finding strategic leverage in any business dispute. Our firm has the talent and technology to handle any opponent. Our firm is proficient in electronic discovery and computer forensics and uses a unique, leading-edge system for delivering courtroom presentations.

- Real Estate

Our real estate practice serves a wide range of Oregon and Washington clients in all phases of commercial development and management, residential development, commercial acquisitions and sales, financing and deal structure and restructure/workout. We represent banking institutions in their efforts to collect unpaid debts and otherwise resolve troubled assets. We also help investors navigate the complex process of acquiring and/or leveraging distressed properties and loan portfolios and all types of borrowers negotiating workouts with public and private lenders as well as defending judicial and non-judicial foreclosures.

- Asset Protection

Asset protection is often one of the goals of thorough estate and tax planning. You have many options in this area, and we are well-versed in all of them, including: asset protection trusts, offshore trusts, asset splitting, homestead exemptions and charitable donations and gifts. We conduct detailed examinations for each client, determining what areas of their business could lead to litigation, and therefore the possible loss of business or personal assets.

- Employment Law

Properly documenting and memorializing the employment relationship, and keeping those employment contracts fresh and relevant, can avoid confusion that often results in litigation. Employee handbooks, company policies, disciplinary procedures, procedures for clocking in and out, these are the types of issues that end up in litigation when an employer fails to engage in preventative legal maintenance. In the end, prevention up front is infinitely cheaper than back end repair work. But not all employment disputes can be avoided. At Slinde Nelson, we handle all types of Oregon and Washington employment disputes efficiently and effectively.

- Elder Law

Abuse can be physical or financial. Physical abuse includes causing injury, serious neglect, nonconsensual sexual contact, or intimidation of the elderly person. Financial abuse generally includes wrongfully taking or threatening to take money or property from an elderly person. The State of Oregon has made protecting our state's senior citizens from abuse one of its top priorities. Oregon's elder abuse statute is one of the most powerful in the country. It allows for the recovery of economic damages as well as damages for emotional distress and pain and suffering.
