Has a land trust, a watershed group, or a government entity offered to purchase all or a portion of your property for conservation purposes? I provide a full range of legal services to individuals, government entities, and non-profits with land conservation and property right transactions across the state of Oregon. Practice areas include:

  • closing and escrow review;
  • conservation easements;
  • trail easements;
  • water quality trading easements;
  • wetland and stream mitigation banking;

  • historic preservation designations;
  • property tax special assessments;
  • willing-seller program development;
  • acquisition grant review and consultation for funding organizations;
  • general counsel to conservation organizations.
