Get to know Nicole L. Voigt
I am a partner of the Firm, focusing my practice in commercial and residential real estate transactions, as well as the contracts, leases, land use, zoning, and environmental matters related thereto. I additionally focuses in business formation and contracts; litigation arising from business, real estate, construction, and landlord-tenant transactions; and administrative permitting and proceedings, including environmental, land use, zoning, and appeal of tax assessments.
Having a B.S. in Ecology & Systematic Biology from California Polytechnic State University, as well as research and inventory/monitoring experience with the National Park Service and the University of Colorado, Boulder, I offer a deeper understanding of the issues underlying land-use, conservation, and environmental matters. I use this multidisciplinary background to facilitate effective legal communications and resolutions among the parties to transactions. In addition, with a background in construction, and further as a business owner, I understands many of the legal, contractual, and administrative challenges facing small businesses.

Prior to that, I served as an associate attorney for Bowditch & Dewey LLP and Lawson & Weitzen LLP, in Boston, Massachusetts.
