Connecting clients with opportunities

Known as “The Great Connector,” Don is a force in the Pacific Northwest business, government and nonprofit communities. He uses his broad platform and relationships to help create opportunities and solve problems for his clients. Portland Monthly magazine has called Don one of Portland’s most influential leaders, comfortable in traditional institutions of power as well as mentoring and working with the next generation of diverse young leaders.

Recognized business law leadership

Don’s broad business, political and nonprofit background allows him to help clients look at old problems in new ways. He is equally comfortable in the boardroom helping work through complex issues, or helping general counsel or senior management identify legal resources and business strategies. Don’s peers have recognized him with the James B. Castles Leadership Award, named after a founding general counsel of Tektronix and a founding trustee of the M. J.
