Nicholas G. Hood is Senior Counsel with Wright, Finlay & Zak’s Transactional Division. As a litigator since 2006, Mr. Hood uses his significant litigation experience concerning contracts, real estate, partnerships, business matters, and lending to help his clients navigate their business dealings and avoid litigation from ever happening – something he and the firm call “preventive lawyering.” Prior to joining the firm’s Transactional Division, Mr. Hood served as vice president and in-house counsel for a large construction company, which gave him a unique business perspective that few attorneys ever receive. Mr. Hood represents and counsels major developers, property owners, landlords, tenants, contractors, technology and web-based companies, business owners and entrepreneurs with honest, practical, and well-experienced legal advice, which focuses on problem solving to get deals done. Indeed, over the course of his career, Mr. Hood has represented clients in matters totaling hundreds of millions of dollars in real estate and business assets. Mr. Hood is a published author in numerous industry and trade journals and often speaks on real estate and other business topics. He enjoys raising his two little boys with his wife, as well as mountain biking, snowboarding, hiking and golfing. He is also an advocate for and speaker regarding organ donation.
