Nino counsels companies on a wide range of corporate, real estate, financing and business legal issues. He also handles a wide range of business litigation matters. Through his distinctive background and experience, Nino is able to offer a unique, creative perspective to his clients by combining legal expertise with practical business judgment.

Nino began his legal career with Sonnenschein Nath & Rosenthal LLP (now Dentons). He became a partner in the firm’s Los Angeles office and gained significant experience representing leading businesses in corporate and real estate matters, as well as complex civil litigation.

In 1999, Nino left Sonnenschein to become the Vice President and General Counsel of DoveBid, Inc., a multinational corporation, where he directed the company’s global legal, human resources and risk management departments, as well as certain aspects of its corporate operations and facilities. During his tenure, the company’s revenues grew from $12,000,000, to $120,000,000; and, as a member of the company’s Mergers & Acquisitions Committee, Nino was instrumental in DoveBid’s acquisition of 19 businesses in various countries around the world.

Nino has represented companies in many different industries and at many different stages of development. Regardless of their size or level of sophistication, he believes that companies who seek experienced, professional advice at the outset of a transaction invariably minimize the risks associated with their operations and decrease the likelihood of future disagreements and misunderstandings, ultimately leading to lower long-term costs.
