Nelson Kinder’s representation of engineers and construction companies has spanned the globe, with significant cases across the United States as well as in Europe, Africa, the Middle East, and Asia.
Established in 1947, Devine Millimet is one of the largest and most dynamic business and litigation law firms in the region. Devine Millimet is a full-service firm whose lawyers serve individuals as well as businesses and nonprofit organizations of all sizes across a wide spectrum of disputes and transactions. 
“We are delighted to welcome the Nelson Kinder lawyers and staff into Devine Millimet,” said firm president Jon Sparkman.  “Nelson Kinder has always been synonymous with the most skilled litigators and they will enhance our talented and deeply experienced litigation department. But more important than that, our two firms share a drive for excellence and efficiency, two attributes that ensure world-class client service. Not only will this combination add to Devine Millimet’s litigation bench strength, but it will help both groups of lawyers pursue their passion for serving all clients expertly and efficiently.” Concerning the Boston office, Sparkman commented “Devine Millimet has considered a Boston presence for several years, and the Nelson Kinder combination will bring that strategic objective to fruition.”
