In this new role, Nelson will ultimately be responsible for providing expert legal and compliance advice and will act as the legal representative for Oakpointe in all matters moving forward.

“For years now, Megan has played an important role in setting up our team for success,” said Brian Ross, Oakpointe’s CEO. “Her superb legal expertise and guidance will continue to be a valuable asset as we move forward with several developments throughout King and Snohomish Counties creating truly great places to live in the Puget Sound region.”

Nelson has more than 15 years of experience providing legal counsel and has been a valued member of the Oakpointe team for more than ten years.

Nelson’s promotion will support ongoing progress in the development of Oakpointe’s Master Planned Communities south of Seattle.
