We have experience serving clients in a wide range of industries, including technology, health care, retail, energy, financial services, manufacturing, consumer products, telecommunications, and infrastructure.

Over the past five years, corporate lawyers in the firm’s Seattle office have led nearly 100 transactions ranging from mid-sized to cross-border billion dollar deals. Lawyers in the group represent clients across all industry sectors with a particular focus on technology, energy, and consumer products. Our emerging growth and venture capital practice focuses on the unique needs of early growth companies and investors in our region.

Litigators in our Seattle office have been at the center of many important legal disputes, including environmental, securities, white collar, antitrust, copyright, and constitutional cases. They handle trials, arbitrations and appeals in local, national and international venues. Pioneers in their industry, our e-discovery analysis and technology (e-DAT) group works alongside our litigators and provides thought leadership through an award-winning blog.

We also assist clients in responding to agency investigations and represent them in discrimination, wage and hour and other lawsuits filed in state and federal court. Our team has extensive experience in conducting legal compliance and due diligence audits for clients and in evaluating potential acquisition targets.

Our energy, infrastructure, and resources practice advises clients as they finance, site, and develop renewable resource and thermal generating projects, as well as electric transmission and interstate natural gas pipelines projects.

Our environmental regulatory lawyers participate in the negotiation, drafting, and enactment of statutes, regulations, and executive orders and have testified before legislative and regulatory panels on leading-edge issues for our clients.

Clients call upon our real estate lawyers to address development, construction, leasing, acquisition, financing, eminent domain, and real estate litigation needs.
