Nathan W. Richardson is a trial attorney in the firm’s Houston office.  Nathan’s practice primarily focuses on complex commercial litigation, including securities litigation, business torts, real estate and construction disputes, and general civil litigation matters.  He has represented clients in the energy, financial services, financial technology, medical, real estate and even boxing promotion industries across the country.  Nathan’s aggressive approach to litigation has led to numerous victories and favorable settlements for clients of all needs and sizes, including obtaining summary judgment dismissal of multiple federal racial discrimination claims asserted against a national restaurant chain.  

Prior to joining McDowell Hetherington, Nathan worked as an associate at one of the country’s preeminent New York-based litigation firms where he was intimately involved in numerous high-profile matters for high-profile clients.  

Outside of the office, Nathan enjoys traveling, playing golf, snowboarding, fishing, and collecting wine with his wife.  Otherwise he can be found in the kitchen, standing next to a grill with his best friend (a twelve pound poodle mix), or on a golf course where he is likely planning what to put on the grill.
