Nelson Block Ends 26-Year Term as Chairman of the Houston Commercial Finance Lawyers’ Forum
In 1989, Winstead shareholder Nelson Block founded the Houston Commercial Finance Lawyers’ Forum. Nelson identified a need for attorneys engaged in commercial loan work to have an organization that met regularly to share knowledge on current legal topics in finance. Since that time, Nelson has served as chairman of the Forum, which grew in membership and met regularly 10 months each year. Today, the Houston Commercial Finance Lawyers’ Forum has members from a wide array of firms who meet to discuss developments in the law and best practices. Nelson recently passed the leadership of the Forum to Lyman Paden of Baker Botts LLP.
Nelson works in Winstead’s Finance & Banking Practice Group.
