Nino handles high-stakes litigation involving contract disputes, shareholder disputes, creditor's rights, financial restructuring, class action defense and multidistrict litigation.
Nino relies on his extensive pretrial and trial experience in state and federal court.

Nino has argued before the Missouri Court of Appeals and engaged in motion practice in the Supreme Court of Missouri. He has also drafted briefing before the Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation.

Not long ago, Nino helped obtain a large and favorable settlement in the St. Louis Circuit Court involving a shareholder dispute.
