About the Firm

Nelson Christensen Hollingworth & Williams is located in the historic McIntyre Building near First South and Main Street in downtown Salt Lake City.  NCHW is a boutique law firm providing specialized service in the areas of real estate, corporate, commercial litigation, family law and estate planning.  We combine the quality and reputation characterized by a large firm with the responsiveness and flexibility more commonly found in the family lawyer.  Our lawyers are consistently recognized by their peers as the best in the business, as evidenced by the fact that two of our attorneys have been recognized by the Real Property Section of the Utah State Bar as the “Distinguished Practitioner of the Year” while our litigating partner is AV rated and since 2011 has consecutively been recognized by peer designation as a top lawyer in civil litigation. While our attorneys are licensed in Utah, we maintain an extensive network of transactional attorneys in over 30 states in order to service our clients’ multi-state portfolio needs.

Our real estate clients include a publicly traded real estate investment trust, developers of regional shopping centers, homebuilders, title companies, and homeowners associations.  Our litigation clients include a national banking institution, a tire manufacturer, companies in the direct marketing industry, business owners, and individuals.  Our corporate clients include manufacturers, software companies, and a private golf club.   We have the expertise and resources to handle complex transactions and litigation and the temperament to help individuals find solutions to difficult problems.  NCHW has closed real estate acquisitions and financing transactions totaling several billion dollars in value, including a 57-property portfolio loan involving properties located in 22 different states, which was part of a $2 billion acquisition.


Our attorneys are dedicated to providing prompt, high-quality, and cost-effective legal services. From routine to complex matters, they are committed to the success of our clients while always offering a solution that promises the greatest value to the client. Our attorneys are consistently recognized in Best Lawyers in America, Super Lawyers, and Utah Business Magazine’s Legal Elite.
