Nathan Howze’s number one goal is to add value to each organization, team, deal, or transaction he is involved with. For Nathan, the client’s needs and objectives are the driving motivations behind all legal advice he provides. A fierce competitor, Nathan simply desires to win – however “winning” is defined by the client.

As a JD/MBA, Nathan counsels clients on business plans and strategies, while simultaneously advising on the legal framework(s) in which to implement such strategies. Nathan is part of the RSHC’s business transactions group, with a focus on mergers and acquisitions, commercial contract drafting, business formation and restructuring, and private equity. He enjoys working with startups and helping to identify and develop their strategic competitive advantages within the market. Nathan also has experience in heavily regulated industries, such as Minority and Disadvantaged Business Enterprises (MBE/DBE), lobbyists, and medical cannabis.

Outside of work, Nathan enjoys spending time with his wife and three children. He is committed to serving underprivileged individuals and actively participates in his church and community. While age and added family responsibilities have limited Nathan’s activities to non-contact sports, such as golf, he still fuels his adrenaline rush when cheering on his beloved Bears, Bulls, and Cubs.
