Richard Q. Nye, the firm’s founder, combined with real estate and commercial practitioners to form Foley, Clark and Nye, P.A. That firm grew rapidly and represented financial institutions, U.S. and international investors, developers and businesses. It lead in and completed the acquisition of the title insurance arm of Insurance Company of North America and its redomestication in Arizona as Fidelity National Title Insurance Company. Eventually, partner William P. Foley acquired control of Fidelity National Title and with Frank P. Willey, one of the firm’s chief litigators, has built Fidelity into the largest title insurance company in the U.S. Rick and real estate partner, Robert L. Shaw, continued the company and its relationships as Nye Shaw, added new partners and continued to grow. Nye Shaw represented institutions and clients, including financial institutions and borrowers, through the unwinding of the S&L industry and into the resumption of growth.
In 1990 Richard Q. Nye, Ltd., this firm’s original name, was formed to expand the practice representing international clients and handling major commercial litigation. Clients have found the unique mix of large scale transaction experience with the extensive litigation foundation provided wise counsel in accomplishing their transactions and successfully litigating their interests. The firm has repeatedly argued and tested documents and business relationships in court and that experience enables us to fully advise our clients on the implication of deal and document structures. And, because we regularly structure transactions, negotiate and draft documents and close, we fully understand the components of disputes we litigate. We have that duel perspective.
Nye Ltd, Attorneys limits its practice to commercial matters. Representative matters include acquisition and financing and sale of properties throughout the U.S., major residential, mixed use and commercial developments. A noteworthy transaction was the acquisition, financing and later resale of the FedEx World Headquarters Building. The firm represents the largest national cellular provider in its Arizona telecommunications site acquisitions, telecommunication license holders, a major, publically regulated Arizona water and sewer utility, a publically traded Canadian development company in U.S. transactions and European investment companies in their U.S. transactions. We regularly litigate business, title and real estate matters. In addition, Nye Ltd, Attorneys represents medium, small and family businesses in transactions, financing, entity structure, litigation and dispute resolution. Nye Ltd, Attorneys is of counsel to Los Angeles law firm, Hennelly & Grossfeld, LLP, representing H&G’s national clients in Arizona matters.
