  • Scott G Wolfe JR

    I've worked with David Nance on a number of different matters, and have known him professionally for a few years. David always has a genuine interest in his clients, and their positions, and he takes a no-nonsene approach to the task at hand. While he provides great counsel to clients in a number of areas, I know David has a particular expertise in Internet law. He's my go-to guy whenever I have questions about domain disputes, website terms of use and contracting, and similar questions...and he always has a sound approach to recommend.
