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.
