Nick Goldberg - Partner

Chief Operating Officer

Nick joined Green Wise Consulting, LLC (GWC) in 2017 as a Consultant and in 2018 was appointed as the company's COO. In 2018, along with Pamela, he co-founded and became a Shareholder and CFO of Green Wise Legal, P.C. Nick brings his unique blend of over 13 years of legal, business, and entrepreneurial experience to our clients throughout California, with a specific focus in Orange and San Diego Counties. Nick is located in the San Diego office.

For nearly six years, Nick served as VP & Senior Legal Counsel at AP Wireless Infrastructure Partners (“APW”), a cell site investment firm, handling the direct negotiation and/or legal oversight of over 2,500 transactions accounting for over $300M in investments. He led company initiatives related to internal sales and investments, spearheaded a tax committee, and revamped underwriting policies and processes to reduce company exposure and risk. Furthermore, he standardized company deal templates and managed outside local counsels around the world, as well an eight-person internal legal team who was responsible for investments in North and South America, Europe, Asia, and Australia. As a member of the APW’s Executive Team, he advised the CEO and other company leaders on all aspects of our company. He gained experience in nearly all departments within the company, including serving as VP of the Australian Sales team from 2013-2014. During this time, the team posted its best investment year to date, more than doubling production from any other year.

Following Nick’s time at APW, he accepted a new challenge and led a renewable energy technology startup. In this role, he prepared all corporate formation documents and agreements with core strategic partners, in addition to raising angel round investments.

Prior to relocating to San Diego in 2011 from the east coast and working with APW, Nick served as a transactional attorney handling complex commercial matters and negotiating a wide spectrum of deals for both private law firms and as an in-house General Counsel. He managed complex corporate transactions for two years at Greenberg Traurig, LLP, ranging from healthcare company formation matters, general corporate formations, and spearheading of several stock and asset purchase agreements. Thereafter, he worked as an associate for several years in Kilpatrick Stockton’s (n/k/a Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton) capital markets department. Additionally, Nick served as General Counsel for Baran Americas, Inc., a large-scale telecommunications and construction company headquartered in the outskirts of Atlanta. During his time at Baran, he managed the company’s legal operations, which included preparation, review, and negotiation of all contracts, leases, and commercial agreements. In addition, he provided general corporate legal advice on all business and legal matters including internal policies and procedures, litigation management, immigration, vendor relations, labor and employment issues, licensing and safety/insurance matters. Furthermore, he was responsible for monitoring supply chain and operations to ensure compliance with all required procedures. Nick led the revamping of Baran’s contract review and approval process, assisted in founding Baran’s Safety Leadership Team, and resolved several pending litigation matters.

Nick received his J.D. from Emory University School of Law in 2005, and his B.A. degree (Business Administration focus) from Vanderbilt University in 2001. He is licensed to practice in California and Georgia. Nick is married and lives in North County San Diego with his two children and two adopted chocolate labs.
