Our attorneys have substantial jury and non-jury trial experience in the trial courts of Washington.  We argue cases before the Washington State Supreme Court and Court of Appeals.  We also represent clients in land use and construction mediation and arbitration and have substantial experience handling complex and multi-party litigation.  As career land use attorneys, we have litigated cases before City, County and State agencies and the numerous board and tribunal authorized to resolve land use and environmental disputes.

Our firm focuses on achieving the best possible result for our clients in a responsive, creative, and cost-effective manner.  We recognize that litigation is a slow, expensive way of resolving disputes and work to get our clients the results they want by exploring avenues short of litigation.  But when litigation is the only way to achieve the desired result, our collective experience provides our clients with excellent representation in land use and construction disputes.

We have represented a variety business, public agency, and individual clients in commercial and real estate litigation.  Some of the areas in which we have substantial litigation experience are:

  • Development projects, including permits and construction authorization
  • Real estate acquisition and leases
  • Real estate partnership disputes
  • Development financing
  • Construction disputes
  • Commercial litigation
  • Real property claims
  • Boundary disputes
  • Architectural and engineering design
  • Inverse condemnation
  • Eminent domain actions
