“For many years I have had the benefit of legal services provided by Laxalt & Nomura.  Our company, a homebuilder, found itself in a number of difficult situations as a result of the severe downturn in the Nevada residential real estate market.  Laxalt & Nomura provided critical assistance in a cost-effective way, which was vital to us.  Where litigation was unavoidable, Laxalt & Nomura pursued cases with a highly proactive and well-conceived approach and did an excellent job of anticipating what arguments the opposing party might present and how to address them.”
