ISSAQUAH LAW GROUP

Issaquah Law Group: Experienced Counsel; Client Focus

PHILOSOPHY: Formed in 2014, Issaquah Law Group is a law firm with one focus: providing businesses and insurers with high quality legal representation with the responsiveness of a smaller firm. ILG was founded on the principle that strong client relationships are the key to successful legal representation and strong relationships are built upon clear and consistent communication. 

LITIGATION: We work closely with our clients to fully and accurately understand their goals, work collaboratively to formulate specific legal strategies, and execute the agreed plan of action utilizing methods most likely to result in the efficient and effective resolution of the matter. ILG attorneys have a broad base of litigation experience to draw on in all Federal and State courts from on-the-ground investigations to Supreme Court appeals in the areas of personal injury and wrongful death, product liability, commercial general liability, labor & employment, construction litigation, and catastrophic losses due to fire and explosion.

BUSINESS LAW: Rarely is the path from point A to point B a straight line, so our role in a business law practice is to find alternatives, devise workable strategies, and keep your business ideas, goals and objectives moving toward realization. ILG’s business attorneys help clients achieve their goals with respect to business formation, intellectual property, labor and employment, CAN-SPAM, copyright and trademark

COMMUNITY: In addition, the Lawyers at Issaquah Law Group remain active in the legal and civic community. A core commitment of our Issaquah Attorneys is community service. Our attorneys' civic involvement includes the King County Civil Rights Commission; the City of Issaquah Planning Policy Commission; the Northwest Screenwriters Guild, service as a pro tem judge. We live and work in the Pacific Northwest, and we aim to make it a better place.

In addition, through The Amateur Law Professor Blog and LinkedIn postings, we share pertinent opinions and decisions of the Washington State Supreme Court, as well as the pertinent opinions and decisions of the Washington State Courts of Appeal so that our clients can be as update to date on cutting legal issues as we are.

R.I.P. Heller Ehrman (1890-2008): Firm to Dissolve Friday

In a follow up to my previous post, speculating that Heller Ehrman might be on the way out after a mass exodus and severe mismanagement (including a telling comment by what I can only assume is a Heller Ehrman associate), the company is indeed calling it quits.

Heller Ehrman Chairman Matt Larrabee broke the news to the 500-plus employees at the firm's San Francisco headquarters Thursday, according to partner Barry Levin, and said an orderly dissolution would proceed over several weeks, allowing lawyers with cases in progress to make arrangements to carry on their clients' work.

The firm has 69 in Seattle.

Reasons cited fir the dissolution include a bad 2007, combined with a structure that left them vulnerable in such a situation. The bad financial year, combined with a mass exodus of brain power, led to the remaining equity partners being unable to salvage the firm.

Heller Drone, feel free to comment again if you know more, I would love to have a greater insight as to the inner workings and what led to this sad result.
