Wayne Leggiadro

Wayne Leggiadro serves as Nixon Peabody’s Executive Director for the Project Finance, Infrastructure & Real Estate Department. He provides financial and administrative support to the real estate leadership team, freeing attorney time to focus on client needs.

What do you focus on?

Leveraging my extensive financial and operational background, I provide business insight focusing on revenue growth, cost containment, and improving financial performance. I analyze data to assist department leadership in making strategic investment decisions, weighing risk and reward, in order to deliver legal services in the most efficient and effective manner possible.

In collaboration with attorneys and other functional areas of the firm, I develop innovative pricing structures for legal service proposals, evaluate alternative fee agreement models, and ensure adoption of the firm’s matter budgeting and analysis program to improve predictability of our engagements and deliver added value to our clients.

What do you see on the horizon?

Ongoing economic uncertainty and globalization will pressure businesses to deliver more cost competitive and differentiated products and services.  Through creative and innovative efforts such as our matter planning program, we will continue to meet our client’s evolving needs.
