About Ater Wynne LLP

THE SCOOP

Portland-area firm Ater Wynne has emphases on litigation, business law, and regulated industries. Some of its more recognizable clients include Bank of America, ConocoPhillips, T-Mobile, Bechtel Enterprises, and the State of Oregon.

Civic Pride in the Pacific Northwest

Ater Wynne began as a Portland-area partnership in the 1930s. Today, the firm's legal team of almost 50 attorneys advises clients doing business in the Pacific Northwest, including Alaska. Thanks to its west coast know-how, law firms for national and international clients regularly retain Ater Wynne as local counsel.

In the 1970s, the firm added a sizeable energy practice. Perhaps reflective of the Portland area's uniquely eco-friendly population, the firm also added a substantial environmental and natural resources practice, with emphases on environmental compliance, Native American tribal resources, and permits and pollution. The firm is also environmentally conscious on its own turf-the city of Portland has bestowed its BlueWorks award to Ater Wynne for its sustainable business practices. Oregon Business Magazine has also recognized Ater Wynne for its environmental savvy, including it on its list of the 100 Best Green Companies to Work for in Oregon several years in a row.

In 2004, with offices already in Portland and Seattle, the firm launched an office in Menlo Park in order to expand its Silicon Valley client base. Expansion aside, the firm takes pride in its Portland roots, touting an attitude of community service based on the words inscribed on the city's Skidmore Fountain: "Good citizens are the riches of a city."

A Portland Business Favorite

Many of Ater Wynne's clients fall into the high-growth emerging business category, and the firm seeks to help budding companies avoid typical corporate growing pains, particularly within the technology, healthcare, telecommunications, construction, real estate and manufacturing industries. The firm has repeatedly ranked in Corporate Board Member magazine's top five lists of corporate law firms in Portland.
