Pickering Cook croppedHaving proved herself an effective and skillful litigator with many high-profile wins to her credit and an invaluable advisor to public sector clients, Nina Pickering-Cook was elected partner at Anderson & Kreiger, effective January 1, 2017.  The firm is honored to have her.

Said Managing Partner Dave Mackey, “Nina has made a great contribution here. She is a talented advocate and committed to her clients, but similarly committed to the life of this firm. We know that she will be an outstanding addition to the partnership.”

She has devoted her practice primarily to public law, real estate, construction and land use litigation.  She recently helped win the dismissal of a large class action against MBTA for service disruptions in the winter of 2015 and won a victory for the Town of Acton in a fight over the use of Community Preservation Act funds to preserve historic churches.

In addition to her litigation work, Nina regularly advises the Towns of Acton, Dover and Duxbury, MassDOT, the MBTA and the Massachusetts Gaming Commission. She also acts as litigation counsel to the Towns of Concord, Ipswich and Lexington.

Nina’s pro bono experience includes helping a community group shut down a non-compliant hazardous waste transfer facility in environmental justice neighborhood.  She is also co-chair of the BBA Real Estate Section’s Land Use and Development Committee, and co-Vice Chair of the ABA Real Estate Litigation, Condemnation and Trust Section’s Content Committee and co-Editor-in-Chief of the newsletter for the same group.

Named a Rising Star by Massachusetts Super Lawyers for the last two years, Nina is a 2000 graduate of Bates College (cum laude) and a 2006 graduate of Boston University School of Law (magna cum laude), where she was on the Law Review.  After starting at the former Palmer & Dodge LLP, Nina joined A&K in the fall of 2007.
