Nish’s focus on advocacy extends to various dispute resolution avenues, including mediation and motion practice, allowing him to deliver solutions for his clients in the most efficient manner allowed by the facts.

He annually presents on deportation defense at the University of Pennsylvania Law School, where he also served as an associate editor on the University of Pennsylvania Journal of Business Law during law school.
