Environmental and land use law firms to combine practices

SEATTLE, Wash. 1/5/12 (PennWell) -- Van Ness Feldman and GordonDerr LLP have announced that their firms will combine practices under the name Van Ness Feldman, A Professional Corporation.

Van Ness Feldman is an energy, environment, transportation and natural resources law and public policy firm with offices in Seattle and Washington, D.C. Recently, the firm represented nine licensees that were facing Federal Energy Regulatory Commission land usage fee increases.

It is hoped that the addition of Seattle-based GordenDerr LLP -- a real estate, land use, water law and civil litigation firm -- will "help a broad, national range of clients successfully navigate the complexities of developing natural resource, energy, infrastructure, and sustainable real estate projects," according to a joint release.

The combined firm will have 116 professionals and 175 total employees firm-wide, with 27 professionals and 40 total employees in Seattle. The firms expect the combination to be effective by the end of the first quarter of 2012.
