Areas of Practice

Every transaction I facilitate supports the community. There is no greater professional satisfaction than seeing a building constructed or property transferred to the next generation with my help. Our communities thrive when our banks are strong, our businesses are healthy and investors are well supported. I'm proud to be a member of the business community and focus my efforts on making our communities a great place to live and work.

Nick is a shareholder with Eckberg Lammers and the lead attorney for the firm’s municipal, banking & finance, business and commercial real estate groups. Nick works with financial institutions, local governments, and businesses to achieve their business goals in a smart, cost-effective, results-oriented way. He also aggressively represents his clients in legal proceedings when issues arise. Nick focuses his practice in:

  • Business organizations
  • Business succession planning
  • Business Mediation (Wisconsin)
  • Commercial real estate
  • Creditor's Rights
  • Mergers & acquisitions
  • Municipal counsel
  • Commercial lending & loan documentation

Nick is committed to helping local communities succeed through both municipal development and business growth, and his practice reflects that dedication.

Nick’s perspective combines the experience of representing lenders, municipalities, businesses, and individuals in complex legal matters. Having represented all sides in these transactions gives Nick the know-how to efficiently negotiate deals and close transactions. He is passionate about economic development and job creation. His love for business is evident in the representation of his clients.

When Nick isn’t advocating for clients, you’ll likely find him at either a hockey rink or lacrosse field in Western Wisconsin; where he lives with his wife and three sons.
