Biography

Paul Nash has a highly diverse real estate practice, allowing him to work on acquisitions, dispositions, financing, and leasing matters for different clients, often all in the same day. He uses a business-oriented approach to his transactional work representing buyers, sellers, borrowers, lenders, and landlords in all facets of commercial property acquisition, financing, development, leasing and management. 

His background as a title officer, escrow officer, and mortgage broker prior to becoming an attorney gives Paul particular insight into his clients’ needs, making him a savvy problem-solver. This skill was particularly useful in his work on a recent matter where a client was assembling properties for a larger development, but one property owner was unwilling to sell. Paul successfully assisted his client in structuring a deal to purchase a separate property and develop it for the holdout seller's use, and then was able to facilitate a land swap between the two parties. Paul’s work here ultimately allowed the client to fulfill their vision and complete the development as planned. 

During law school, Paul interned for the Honorable Judge Carolyn B. McHugh of the Utah Court of Appeals, and was also an intern with the Office of General Counsel for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Frankfurt, Germany. Paul gained valuable exposure to all aspects of the commercial real estate industry through his involvement with NAIOP, the commercial real estate development association, where he was invited to participate in the organization’s Young Professionals Group. He has also served on the association’s alumni board, and as a member of its programs committee.

Paul is an Eagle Scout, and he spent two years as a voluntary missionary in Costa Rica. His current community service includes holding leadership positions in his church and volunteering with the Boy Scouts of America. He enjoys travel, camping, fly-fishing, and spending time with his wife and their two daughters.
