Lisa Lowe is committed to delivering value in all aspects of her diverse practice, which serves both ports and estate planning clients. As the partner in charge of Schwabe’s Vancouver office, she is skilled in matching tasks with talent and managing complex and straightforward matters cost-effectively.
Smooth sailing for ports
Lisa has worked with the Port of Vancouver for over 24 years, serving as its general counsel for over 12 years. She provides general counsel services for other ports on an as-needed basis, including drafting, reviewing and negotiating real estate transaction documents; advising on the Washington Public Records Act and Public Meetings Act; managing litigation and other legal work; and offering day-to-day general recommendations on compliance, legal risks, legal strategies, and legislative and constitutional authority.
Lisa currently serves as the Chair of the Washington Public Ports Association’s (WPPA) Legal Committee, the first non-port employee to serve as chair of any WPPA committee. Her port and community experience gives her the ability to work effectively within the political environments of small to midsize communities and municipalities.
Family and business estate planning solutions
Lisa’s estate planning and wealth transfer practice spans all areas of estate planning, including trusts, guardianships and probate. She has represented numerous clients with multimillion dollar estates and has advised personal representatives and trustees on estate, tax and trust issues. She is regularly appointed Special Representative to assist in complicated family trust matters, and provides representation in business succession planning for businesses and estate planning.
“I honestly don't know how the service level could be higher. Part of the key to this is the leadership Lisa Lowe brings to her personal practice and the Vancouver, WA (and by extension the broader Schwabe family) office. I know with Lisa, and others in Schwabe, that I have a partner to walk down the path to success with me shoulder to shoulder if needed.”
