Concentration: Business and corporate transactions and advice, trademark and copyright protection,
game business formation, development and protection, intellectual property licensing, real estate transactions.
Since 1986, I’ve helped people and businesses buy,
sell and create companies, and to complete other
transactions that are key to their advancement. Prior to co-founding Henke Bartram, I practiced at the Seattle law firms of Vandeberg Johnson & Gandara and Helsell Fetterman LLP, where I was Chair of the Business Department. I’ve advised businesses in a variety of industries and of a variety of sizes, including local, regional and national corporations.

Spending Free Time: When not helping clients solve business problems, I volunteer for non-profit boards, providing them with expertise on corporate and intellectual property issues. I backpack (while I still can) with my sons. Favorite place to hike: Pasayten Wilderness in Washington State. I also fly fish with other authors of piscatorial myths, including my friend and law partner, Dan Henke. Favorite place to fish: not tellin’.
