Having traveled to 25 countries on four continents and 47 U.S. states plus the District of Columbia, Nathan often works from remote locations, such as while visitng clients or researching issues, both in the USA and offshore. Nathan's practice includes civil and criminal tax defense, including appeals; offshore/foreign issues; civil litigation, including RICO and class action; securities defense; and real estate, including foreclosure defense and foreclosure offense, where his international securitization experience gives him special insight. Nathan represents clients from multiple continents and is licensed in California, England, and Wales.
Nathan's legal background began while growing up within his father's firm, including attending press conferences for clients such as Governor Mecham and Senator Davis and travelling for court and speaking engagements, including to offshore locations such as the Cayman Islands. Nathan furthered his international experience and gained inside information into the world of international banking by spending nearly four years as an associate at the world's second-largest law firm, Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer, in its Frankfurt and London offices.
There Nathan represented major international banks in cross-border real estate financing, factoring, and securitization, including an in-house assignment with the OTC-derivatives department of banking giant Goldman Sachs. Nathan also represented foreign finance ministries, negotiating and drafting the contracts for the government bail-outs of German banks.
