Vancouver Business Journal highlighted Schwabe Shareholder Matthew Bisturis in its “Movers & Shakers” section for his recent appointment to a full seat on the board of directors for Identity Clark County (ICC). The business leaders group serves a vital role assembling and focusing corporate leadership in a shared community agenda.

“I am grateful for the opportunity to serve on the Identity Clark County board and to work with an amazing group of business leaders and staff committed to strengthening our community and economy,” Bisturis was quoted as saying by the Vancouver Business Journal. Identity Clark County’s investors are from industries spanning the diverse sectors that make up the business landscape of Clark County.

Schwabe operates on an industry-focused model, where lawyers have a deep understanding of one or more of seven key industry sectors: Healthcare and Life Sciences; Indian Country and Alaska Native Corporations; Manufacturing, Distribution and Retail; Natural Resources; Real Estate and Construction; Technology; and Transportation, Ports and Maritime. This empowers us to act as not only legal counsel, but as leadership partners for the clients we serve. Matthew’s industry focuses are in Manufacturing, Distribution and Retail; and Real Estate and Construction. He has particularly deep experience in helping companies navigate the legal challenges that come with establishing, growing, operating and eventually transitioning their businesses.

“Serving on the ICC board allows me to have a seat at the table with numerous business leaders in our community across various industries as we tackle issues that are of key importance to members of our business community.”

Matthew started his involvement with the Identity Clark County board of directors in 2019 when he was appointed to the honorary Ed Lynch Board Seat. According to ICC, the position is given to persons who “demonstrate strong potential as a business and community leader, possess positive character attributes and will be an active participant in ICC.”

“That opportunity gave me first-hand insight into how the business community navigated all of the issues related to the pandemic, and provided me with an opportunity to get involved with the organization on a longer-term basis.”

The pandemic has caused a constantly changing economic climate, and businesses today must be nimble as they shift tactics to stay successful. Schwabe applauds these efforts to help local businesses succeed, and our ability to serve our clients is also strengthened by his board position and involvement with ICC. Schwabe’s industry-focused model means we keep a pulse on the local business landscape for our clients, and it helps us stay one step ahead of legal challenges as they arise.
