greene_nancy_61000-0347_bioNancy W. Greene became the first woman and the first Generation Xer to lead the law firm Miles & Stockbridge in its 86-year history after being elected as chair in 2018.

As a leader of Miles & Stockbridge, she hired the firm’s first diversity, inclusion and professional development officer. She formed a pro bono team that’s easier to access and helps low-income LGBTQ Marylanders with name and identity changes. She also launched a new mentoring program.

For students considering a career, Greene has said the law firm’s diversity pipeline initiatives help encourage and prepare minority students to pursue legal careers and succeed in law school, including its partnership with the University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law’s Diversity and Inclusion Scholars Initiative.

“The impact of our efforts extends well beyond our walls to positively affect the legal profession, the communities where we live and work, and society as a whole in many ways,” she said.

In addition to her management responsibilities at Miles & Stockbridge, the University of Maryland Law School graduate runs a real estate practice, with a focus on acquisitions, development, leasing and lending. She is a member of the bar in the District of Columbia and Maryland.

Her clients range from regional and national financial institutions to property owners and tenants. She also represents commercial developers and health care organizations and specializes in the negotiation of purchase agreements, joint development agreements, partnerships and limited liability company agreements, as well as various types of loan documents.

Greene also has a leasing practice and advises clients on retail, office and industrial leases and related matters for real estate projects of different sizes and purposes, including sophisticated syndicated loans for numerous lending institutions.

Greene was named among the Best Lawyers in America in the area of Real Estate Law and one of Chambers USA’s America’s Leading Lawyers for Business in Real Estate.

Outside the office, Greene serves on the boards of the Baltimore Chesapeake Bay Outward Bound School, the Economic Alliance of Greater Baltimore, the Greater Baltimore Committee and the Baltimore Museum of Industry.
