Partner, Steptoe & Johnson LLP
Nancy White advises international and domestic clients, both companies and individuals, in connection with day-to-day business matters as well as more significant transactions, such as mergers and acquisitions, private placements of debt and equity securities, equipment and real property leases, secured and unsecured loans, loan workouts, and refinancing transactions. Her practice extends from the US to Europe, Asia, Central America, and South America. Product and services distributors, real estate contractors and developers, borrowers and lenders, manufacturers, research, medical, and financial institutions, and utility companies call on Nancy to successfully guide them through their business transactions. She receives referrals based on the trust she establishes with each client and her client’s counterparties and their counsel due in part to her collaborative manner and her understanding of clients’ cross-border commercial interests.
Nancy provides cost-effective solutions on matters from routine to complex. She often advises clients on contracts with both foreign and US-based goods and services providers, and she provides structural advice and counsel in connection with innovative financing transactions.
Nancy is also generous with her time and talents in the Phoenix community. She provides pro bono legal services to several nonprofit organizations and individuals through Phoenix’s Volunteer Lawyers Program. Additionally, Nancy serves as Vice Chair of the Board of Directors of First Place®, an Arizona-based nonprofit that serves adults with autism and other special needs. She has also held leadership positions with the Centers of Habilitation, the Phoenix Chamber of Commerce, the Arizona Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, Xico, Inc. and the Southwest Autism Research and Resource Center.
