Nellie Shipley Sullivan

Nellie has helped drive a broad variety of commercial real estate projects in over 20 years of practicing law. She has deep experience in corporate real estate, including portfolio management, expansions and relocations, and developer projects, including single-family, apartments and assisted living. She also assists clients with economic development incentives and other programs.

Nellie helps clients reach for the stars while keeping their feet on the ground. She brings to deals a dedication to understanding client goals, and customizes her counsel accordingly. She also surgically engages additional resources to address questions as needed. She thinks ahead creatively so project teams can be strategic about their next moves in a changing environment, focusing teams on both the critical details and the broader big picture. Teams work together to impose order on chaos to efficiently achieve desired results. Nellie’s clients also appreciate the sense of camaraderie that she brings to her work, and above all know that she has their backs.

Nellie thrives on utilizing an eclectic background (like computer science) to provide atypical perspectives to her clients. She loves thinking about new trends, like industry “disruption” in supply chain logistics and management and how to navigate that opportunistically. Nellie also invests herself in personal passions like human rights and actualization. She enjoys traveling widely and gardening at home, juxtaposing apparently opposite interests.
