Our Portland Office

The 21st Century
From the first half of the last century, Schwabe, Williamson & Wyatt grew from 14 attorneys in one city to over 170 attorneys in six cities. The firm currently has offices in Portland, Bend and Salem, Oregon; Seattle and Vancouver, Washington; and Washington D.C. In recent years, the practice has evolved from a predominately trial practice to a broad-based business practice, including business litigation.

During the last three decades, women have become more involved in firm leadership, with Neva Campbell becoming the first woman partner in 1981. The firm has dramatically increased its commitment to diversity by focusing on the hiring and promotion of women and minorities.

In 2001, Walter Grebe stepped down after seven years as Managing Partner, and was replaced by dual attorney leaders, David Bartz, President, and Mark Long, Managing Partner.

Schwabe, Williamson & Wyatt encourages attorneys to participate in community activities, professional affairs, and nonprofit service. The firm was the first Northwest law firm to sponsor a legal clinic for low-income families. Nearly one hundred attorneys volunteer their time at the clinic. Firm members help support charitable organizations, including the Red Cross, Loaves & Fishes (food for the housebound), and Blanchet House (food, shelter, and other services to the needy).

Schwabe, Williamson & Wyatt has grown to be the seventh largest law firm in the Pacific Northwest, and the second largest in Oregon. The firm's practice represents the region's major employers in technology, banking, healthcare, and manufacturing, and includes a broad base of small and entrepreneurial businesses and individuals. Schwabe, Williamson & Wyatt remains deeply committed to service and to continuing its tradition of leadership in the Pacific Northwest.
