Overview

Nicole draws on her business background to help real estate clients produce tangible results in communities.

As an undergraduate business school student, Nicole found herself fascinated by a business law course. Her professor captured her attention with real world examples from his legal career, and she immediately decided to plan for law school. Nicole knew from the beginning that she would focus on transactional law—the practice area resonated with her and her educational background, and her strong writing skills meant that the careful drafting of contracts would be a natural fit.

Prior to law school, Nicole took a position as an international banking specialist in the standby letters of credit department at U.S. Bank. The work showed her firsthand the intricacies of transactional documents and contracts, and she honed her eye for detail, learning how to ensure that language was precise. Nicole also developed a focus on clients: her role at the bank involved extensive client contact and communication, and she learned the importance of keeping clients informed every step of the way.

After earning her J.D. from Saint Louis University School of Law, Nicole joined Husch Blackwell’s Real Estate & Development team. Nicole served as a summer associate at the firm assisting with liens and a community improvement district (CID) project. Today, she drafts transactional documents for real property purchases, sales and leases.

Nicole is known for her detail-oriented nature and the great care she takes with contracts, as well as for her client focus. She places a high priority on communication and ensuring that clients understand the legal intricacies of their transactions.
