Practice areas

Having practiced employment law for over 20 years, Nick brings unique and invaluable experience to Edwards Beightol. Before joining the Firm in 2010, Nick practiced at Proskauer Rose LLP (in New York City) and Jones Day (in Washington D.C.), two of the nation’s largest and most respected management-side law firms. While at these firms, Nick successfully represented Fortune 500 companies, sports leagues/teams and entertainment entities in almost every conceivable employment situation, including in federal and state courts throughout the United States; high-stakes labor arbitrations; and administrative proceedings before the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, Department of Labor and National Labor Relations Board. Nick also became well-versed in handling appeals, particularly at the federal appellate level.

Due to his extensive management-side experience, Nick is familiar with and can anticipate the practical and legal strategies companies employ in litigation. Consequently, since joining Noble Law, Nick has successfully and efficiently represented numerous Firm clients at the pre-litigation and litigation phases of employment disputes. Due to the high-profile nature of some of his work, Nick’s cases have been covered by the press.

Nick’s “bulldog” reputation in litigation can be traced to his Italian heritage and northern New Jersey roots. In addition to handling many of the Firm’s larger litigations, Nick has created a niche practice of representing C-suite and other upper-level executives in employment contract and complex compensation disputes.

Based upon his accomplishments, Nick has been selected as a North Carolina Super Lawyer in Employment Law since 2021.

In his free time, Nick is an avid Tar Heel fan, fitness fanatic, super-fan of the band Iron Maiden and frequent visitor to his favorite vacation spots, Coronado and Disney World.

Satisfied Client
Nick was very responsive each step of the journey. He gave excellent advice, insight and very receptive to my input. I was sued for a non-compete, I sued back and the matter was resolved with Nick's guidance. I could not have been more pleased with the outcome.

Low Hanging Fruit
Nick presents himself as a very street savvy, aggressive attorney. My experience was quite the opposite. He did not alway do what he said he would do and lacked creating, communicating or executing on any kind of strategy. It was obvious that the opposing attorney saw him as the weaker, less experienced player and took full advantage. I titled this review as Low Hanging Fruit as this appeared to be his modus operandi. His client's best interest took second place to profit. He and his partner were not always honest and straight forward. Taking responsibility and doing the honorable thing for providing what they even conceded was less than sound/accurate advice, was quite disappointing.

Response from Nicholas Sanservino October 31, 2017
“We were very disappointed to hear about the negative experience you believe you had with our firm. Without knowing the name of the client, it is impossible to know how you feel that we failed to meet your expectations. We have established our reputation in the community through relentless excellence in both client services and legal representation, so we take client feedback very seriously. We encourage you to email us directly at [email protected] or phone Josh Kalish, our Director of Client Services, directly at (919) 251-6008. Thanks.”
