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

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.

Washington Legal Roundup – Division I

Boguch v. The Landover Corporation

Geoff Boguch wanted to sell waterfront property in Hunt’s Point.  He hired the Landover Corporation (Landover) to list the property.  It didn’t sell right away and Landover added an aerial photograph of the property to the Internet with incorrectly drawn boundary lines.

No one offered to buy the property for about two years before it was noticed that the aerial photograph was inaccurate.  Mr. Boguch eventually hired another company to list the property and sold it for substantially less than he had asked.  Mr. Boguch sued Landover because he believed that their negligence in putting the wrong image up had made it impossible to sell at a higher price.

The trial court had dismissed Mr. Boguch’s claims on summary judgment because he did not bring forth evidence showing that Landover’s negligence had actually caused the property to be unsellable at the higher price.  The Court of Appeals affirmed, but held that attorney fees for Landover were only available for claims that Mr. Boguch brought under the contract for listings services.  The tort claims (for allegedly breaching the duties of real estate agents) were not subject to attorney fees.
