Business Law
Transactions & Litigation

Our firm prides itself in representing a myriad of different business for all their legal needs.

Businesses across Washington and Alaska turn to us to advise and protect their interests in their transactions, whether it be incorporation, drafting contracts, reviewing leases, acquisitions, or employee contracts. When litigation becomes inevitable, the same businesses turn to us to advocate and pursue their interests.

Over the years we have facilitated many large transactions involving millions of dollars. At the same time, we have represented numerous of small entrepreneurs, helping to launch their business with limited funds. Many of our strongest relationships are with clients who came to our office as entrepreneurs with little more than an enthusiastic vision, and, with our assistance, we’ve witnessed the vision transform into a profitable reality.

Our firm’s reputation as tough commercial litigators is well deserved. We approach commercial litigation with the understanding that no business wants to litigate, but, also, that with a skilled advocate, no business should be afraid to litigate. The reality of a complex business environment is that not every impasse is amenable to good-faith negotiations. When the time comes, our clients know they can count on us to be vigilant, assertive, creative and hardworking to the end.
