Nicholas H. Pyle
Nick Pyle is a high-stakes litigator with many years of experience handling complex civil litigation and appellate matters. He represents businesses and public sector clients of every size in diverse disputes in federal and state courts across the nation. While his main priority is to achieve clients’ goals in the most efficient manner outside of the courtroom, Nick takes the time to prepare every case as though it is going to trial, as he believes it’s the best way to be positioned for the most favorable outcome. His strategy has been proven time and again through successes in cases involving breach of contract, business ownership disputes, torts, antitrust, fraud, class actions and more.
Nick works with clients across a multitude of industries to fully learn and understand their objectives, then tailors his litigation approach to align with their objectives. Further, he takes the time to educate his clients on what litigation will look like from the outset and then to explain each new step or development in plain terms without legalese.
Nick is also very committed to dedicating his time to help the underserved. Some of his pro bono work has included: representing immigrants in immigration court and before the Ninth Circuit; representing foster care children in a class action against the state of Oregon for deprivation of constitutional rights; and partnering with legal aid organizations to represent numerous clients in various disputes.
Before joining BB&K, Nick practiced as a general litigator with multi-national and regional firms. He also clerked on the United States District Court for the Central District of California.
Outside of the office, Nick enjoys spending time with his wife and new daughter, reading, fly fishing, camping, rafting and playing soccer.
