Nicholas M. "Nick"
Colvin

  • Senior Counsel

I grew up in a small town in West Michigan attending a one-room schoolhouse. Despite limited resources, my parents always stressed the importance of giving back to the community. I’ve tried to carry those lessons and values forward – both through my public sector work and now, at a firm that both shares these values and utilizes my government experience. From economic development work, as bond counsel, which may lead to the construction of a school or library, to assisting nonprofits in social impact securities offerings that facilitate small business lending, affordable housing and other important community development projects, I get to advise clients on structures that will allow them to derive a profit, while still doing impactful work, and that is very rewarding.

Nick Colvin is an experienced economic development and government attorney who brings unique public sector experience working at every level of government – local, state and federal. He specializes in impact investing and municipal finance, with a focus on infrastructure, governmental and nonprofit finance securities offerings, real estate development and public-private partnership transactions.
