About Nicholas

Learn Nicholas’s areas of practice.

I am primarily a business lawyer with entrepreneurial experience. I have owned several businesses,  started a commercial mortgage company, produced a feature film while in law school, and am currently the managing partner of my law firm that I founded in 1977.

I understand what bussiness owners want-- trusted good advise  and legal services delivered at  affordable prices  in timely fashion. Many deals are lost if not acted on in a timely manner.  I understand that and I am always prepared. I believe in working hard (including Saturdays and Sundays) to make sure that I am current in all of my files so that I can give that new client or new matter the immediate attention that it deserves.

I also know that it takes  more than the understanding of  business law to service business owners. One needs  to understand, real etstate law, Uniform Commercial Code, finances, taxes, estate planning,  and employment law  to provide  a complete holistic  approach to solving one's probelms. Recently I have helped 4 different applicants to apply  for a Medicinal Marijuana Dispensary License in CT

Most business owners do not want litigation since litigation is very expensive and uncertain . I try to make sure all  possibles scenarios  and associated risks in a transaction are  known by my clients so that they can make  informed decisions and avoid litigation. And when litigation is necessary, I am in a position to make sure that the right attorney within my firm can litigate on their behalf.

A true professional
Nick has been our lawyer for our family business for over 20 years. He has assisted us in growing our business with the utmost respect, integrity, and has given us the vision and proper guidance to expand. I would recommend Nick in any capacity. We have worked with him from real estate to business to organizational legal issues. I do not think we would have as much success using a different attorney and I would highly recommend him.

Long Term Successful Relationship
Nick has worked with me and my companies over 20 years in a variety of areas from Real Estate to Business Acquisitions to working with the State of CT Economic Development and multiple closings. He quickly understands the pertinent information required to complete the transaction or pursue a resolution of a problem. No redundant billings I have received from other firms in the past. I have full faith and confidence in him personally and his firm and would highly recommend and have to others.

A class act / A true professional
I have been using Nick Paindiris as counsel for my business for almost 15 years. I own a national chain of restaurants in CT and have used him for a wide range of items throughout my years. Nick is someone that is trustworthy, dependable, and a true professional. He has helped me build my business throughout the years and has helped me deal with every step in my expansion including negotiation, leasing, and closing. I'm confident to say that Nick has the experience and the ability to advise anyone on growing and building a successful business. I will continue using only Nick Paindiris and look forward to continually working with him.

Solid Choice
Nick is a shrewd, experienced, business lawyer. His fees are totally reasonable and he works extremely fast. His depth of knowledge and 30+ years of experience as well as competent support distinguish him from many of his peers. I’ve had matters where the big firms brought in 3 lawyers vs. Nick and Nick made them look foolish. We bought and sold many business and only once went somewhere else. We learned our lesson and came back afterwards.
