Schwabe Attorney Receives City Club of Portland Research Award
Peter Livingston, a shareholder in the Portland office of regional law firm Schwabe, Williamson & Wyatt, was a recent co-recipient of the Research Award from the City Club of Portland, which is given annually for outstanding contributions to the organization's research program. Livingston received the award in recognition of his role as the lead writer of the 2010 study "Moving Forward: A Better Way to Govern Regional Transportation."
"Peter has been a committed member and advocate for the City Club of Portland," said Mark Long, managing partner for Schwabe. "His passion and enthusiasm for the club's mission has carried over into his excellent work for its research program."
Livingston focuses his practice in the areas of real estate and land use. He has represented private clients in Oregon and Washington in all stages of land use permitting, including advocacy during the planning process, land use applications and hearings, and appeals to the Oregon Land Use Board of Appeals (LUBA), Washington superior courts, and Oregon and Washington appellate courts. Livingston graduated from the University of Illinois College of Law with a juris doctor degree.
