Recreation

Recognized Leaders in Recreational Risk Management 

Over the past 35 years we have built and maintained a solid reputation representing snow ski areas and other clients in this specialized industry.

The firm is a recognized leader in recreational risk management and handles Oregon litigation for the following recreational companies: REI, Salomon, Burton, Marker, Nidecker, Bieffe, Mt. Bachelor, Mt. Hood Meadows, Mt. Ashland Ski Area, Timberline Ski Area, Willamette Pass Ski Area, Mt. Hood Ski Bowl, Anthony Lakes, Cooper Spur Mountain Resort, and other sports and recreation companies.

We have established relationships and work well with multiple insurance companies that service the recreation industry. 

Our litigation attorneys have the expertise necessary to defend recreation clients in complex cases involving tort claims and defense of personal and catastrophic injuries. We have successfully defended claims asserting wrongful death, premises liability, and products liability cases involving negligence, strict product liability, and breach of warranty.

Our litigators have taken numerous cases to trial and in many other cases we have obtained summary judgment or defense verdicts in favor of our clients. We are praised for efficient management and practical resolution of cases of all sizes and complexities.

In addition to risk management advice and litigation defense, we serve recreational companies with their business, intellectual property, employment, environmental, regulatory, debtor-creditor, and real estate needs. 

We actively participate in industry associations, including the Pacific Northwest Ski Areas Association and Association of Ski Defense Attorneys. Our attorneys are frequent speakers on risk management, litigation, insurance, employment, real estate, environmental, and other issues of concern to this industry.
