Since 1963, Jordan Ramis’s entrepreneurial spirit has been a good match for businesses, organizations, and entrepreneurs building and defining the Pacific Northwest. Our longstanding presence extends beyond the law. Many of our attorneys have grown up here and have had previous careers and backgrounds in industries that have been the mainstay of our region, from construction, real estate, and agriculture, to banking, local government, and hospitality/lodging. From small businesses to Fortune 500 companies, our depth of knowledge and ability to be quick and adaptable, combined with our understanding of the industries we serve and our seasoned experience, offers clients unique advantages and opportunities.
From our Oregon offices in the Portland Metro area and Bend, and our Washington office in Vancouver, we empower our clients by delivering value beyond the legal opinion. With our insider’s knowledge of our clients’ business and industry, we don’t just deliver an opinion, but rather deliver sound advice and counsel on what to do with that opinion.
Many of our clients are regional businesses, individuals, and local governments, but we also serve as local counsel to large national companies doing business in the Pacific Northwest. Our practice spans many industries, including construction, real estate, homebuilding, agriculture, local government and municipalities, hospitality/lodging, education, and insurance.
This broad spectrum of clients and industries has an equally broad spectrum of business needs, and we realize that what matters most is removing obstacles and reaching smart business decisions. Our flexibility, creativity, and steady approach are the foundation for deep, genuine client relationships that last beyond our confident legal representation.
We know our clients have a choice in the counsel they hire. We believe the client experience is paramount. We value collaborative relationships that better allow us to give our clients what they need to meet their objectives. We act as advisors to tell our clients what they need to know. The end result is advice beyond the legal opinion that is technically sound, rooted in an understanding of our clients’ industries, and based on good judgment. Our clients tell us that our steady approach brings them a sense of focus and calm.
