We provide legal services in both Oregon and Washington and in Federal Court. We have developed unique knowledge in certain areas of law that other attorneys often do not wish to handle such as:

  • Construction liens for design professionals and general contractors on abandoned projects
  • Preliminary injunctions and temporary restraining orders

Basic services of the firm include:

Business Litigation

We litigate shareholder and partnership disputes, breach of contract, foreclosures of real and personal property, financial fraud, and business interference claims.

Construction Transactions and Litigation

We negotiate construction contracts, including AIA and AGC based agreements, for design professionals, contractors and suppliers.  We litigate delay claims, payment disputes, defect claims and insurance coverage disputes.

Corporate Formation and Governance

We form and register entities such as S- Corporations, Limited Liability Companies and other related corporate forms. After registration, we help our business clients maintain their corporate books, minutes and other corporate formalities.

Creditors Rights/Foreclosures

We pursue collection actions for unpaid services and goods . We pursue and defend foreclosure actions against real and personal property, including the removal of cases from bankruptcy court.

Guardianships and Conservatorships

When a person becomes temporarily or permanently unable to make decisions for themselves, the court appoints someone to oversee that persons care and financial matters. We help family members and associates through the process; and, when necessary, litigate disagreements over who should be appointed Guardian or Conservator.

Lien and Bond Claims

Lien and bond claims provide powerful rights to recover payment. Specific notice requirements and strict deadlines must be satisfied. We file and litigate lien and bond claims in accordance with these requirements.

Non Compete Agreements and Trade Secret Litigation

Non Competes and Confidentiality Agreements often appear in employment, brokerage and Buy-Sell Agreements. We prosecute, defend and challenge the enforceability of these agreements. Litigation in this area can be swift and fluid requiring emergency proceedings that we perform on an expedited basis.
