How Nathan Helps Clients
With a decade of experience, Nathan focuses his real estate law practice on development in Pittsburgh and surrounding Allegheny County. He supports clients through the life cycle of a real estate transaction starting with planning and fundraising through the permitting and construction processes.
Previously, Nathan was the chief legal officer at the Urban Redevelopment Authority of Pittsburgh (URA), the City of Pittsburgh’s economic development agency.

What Clients Can Expect
Nathan drives transactions and other projects for clients with a diligent attention to detail and clear communication.
In my practice, I get to help clients of all sizes and experience levels achieve their goals, from a small business buying their first storefront to a commercial developer assembling parcels for a large scale development and helping to create jobs in a community. I appreciate that real estate work is impactful on both a macro and micro level.
