Nathan spent his first few years practicing law at a well-respected insurance defense firm in Albuquerque. During that time, his practice included construction defect litigation, professional liability, commercial defamation, personal injury, and premise liability. In two multi-million dollar cases Nathan successfully obtained dismissal of all claims against his clients before ever reaching trial. Nathan has successfully drafted and argued many motions before both state and federal courts on various issues including calculating damages in a construction defect matter, personal liability of a corporate member, breach of contract, and First Amendment protections for defamation, among other issues.
While in law school Nathan was the Editor-in-Chief of the BYU Journal of Public Law. He also competed as a traveling member of the BYU Trial Advocacy Team, and was a semi-finalist in both the Woody Deem Trial Advocacy Competition and Moot Court Competition. As a research assistant he examined various contract issues such as breach of contract, contracts of adhesion, and online contracts. That research contributed to a number of published articles.
