Nellie Sullivan
Womble Bond Dickenson

Nellie has helped drive a broad variety of commercial real estate projects in almost 25 years of practicing law. She has deep experience in development projects, including apartments, assisted living projects and single-family communities (age-restricted and otherwise), and in corporate real estate, including portfolio management, expansions and relocations. 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 is dedicated to understanding client goals and customizes her counsel accordingly. She also surgically engages additional resources to address questions as needed. Nellie 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. 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 travelling widely and gardening at home, juxtaposing apparently opposite interests.
