They have a strong municipal practice in transactional and litigation areas, and represent a lot of towns and cities as in-house counsel. The lawyers there struck me as down to earth. They recently took over K&L Gates' outpost in Spokane, who do good work.

And what about Stoel Rives? (For litigation specifically).

They do a lot of general commercial litigation, but I'm not sure of the overall quality of that group. Certainly not the highest level of litigation work available in the area, but I know they're handling the ongoing Bertha drilling litigation (opposite Perkins Coie). The Seattle office is mostly known for its environmental group, although they only hire sporadically. The firm as a whole is very relaxed and friendly, and that applies to the people I've met in the litigation group too.

Thank you. Would you say the quality of lit work is higher at FP?

I can't comment on the quality of litigation at Foster because I don't know anything about their litigation group. Hopefully someone else can chime in here. Their corporate/transactional practice has a solid reputation though.
