My review of Nina Senn
Nina and I worked together for 6 years at Blackhawk Network. As a founder and SVP in charge of all products Nina was my lead attorney on the business. Nina is a very good communicator, good with difficult clients or partners, a good negotiator for the business and a great person. Nina is able to take direction on risk vs business reward, sensitive areas of the business negotiation and on going more general coaching. Nina does good solid work.

Nina Senn
I have worked on multiple projects with Nina related mostly to corporate contracts and contract renewals. I consistently found her to be responsive and very instrumental in helping to close many of my deals. She does a great job with the client and I never hesitated to bring her into a conversation with my customer and their counsel. What I think makes Nina unique is that she was very easy to work with and could simplify the most complex of legal issues so customers and even myself could understand. I recommend Nina and have the utmost confidence that she would benefit any case she is given.

Review of Nina Senn - Excellent Attorney
Nina is a fabulous, experienced and sophisticated attorney. Nina handles transactions in an efficient and cost effective manner, while keeping focused on the needs of her client. I recommend her highly.
Posted by Jared | November 4, 2013
Nina is a fantastic attorney! She is professional and polished but also approachable, fun and friendly. Her many years in various industries has obviously honed and perfected the business and corporate legal skills she possesses, but her wonderful personality is what makes her different. But don't be fooled, she is a bulldog when required! Should you need corporate legal services, Nina should be the first and last person you contact.

Endorse Nina
Commercial real estate Attorney | Apr 30
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I endorse this lawyer. Nina and I were colleagues at Blackhawk Network for 7 years. Nina is an extremely gifted negotiator and drafter of complex commercial contracts. Nina is also a thought leader making key strategic contributions. However, Nina's true gift is her ability to manage and lead a group with challenging personalities, often with competing goals, to consensus and closure. I highly recommend Nina."
Mediation Attorney | Nov 12
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Nina is a wonderful mediator. She is sensitive and detail-oriented. She will work hard to help the parties reach a resolution. I highly endorse this lawyer."
Contracts and agreements Attorney | Nov 09
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I have worked with Nina on a numerous matters over a period of several years while she was in-house counsel for a client. She is a very talented lawyer: very smart, writes and communicates clearly, an effective negotiator, and practical in her approach. She is very personable and always exhibits a highly professional attitude in her interactions with clients, opposing counsel, and their clients. Given her broad range of experience and the skills mentioned above, I would highly recommend her as an attorney, whether serving as an advocate in a contested matter, as a counselor and adviser, or as a mediator."
Contracts and agreements Attorney | Oct 15
Relationship: Worked for lawyer
"I have had the pleasure of working with Nina for approximately 7 years. You will not find a more caring individual for your needs or the needs of your company. She excels at having a solution-oriented aproach to any negotiations, and her level of expertise in general contract law and, as a niche expertise, logistics, is extremely high."
