Who Is CLG?

Chenoweth Law Group, P.C., is a Pacific Northwest firm based in Portland, Oregon. CLG provides legal solutions for businesses and individual clients ranging from the simplest to the most complex. Attorneys and other professionals recognize and trust our abilities, and they routinely refer their clients to us, knowing we will get the job done.

The best protection from potential litigation is careful, strategic planning on the front end of your business or real estate deal. Because we routinely litigate business and real estate agreements gone wrong, we have developed a keen awareness of potential pitfalls or loopholes commonly found in contracts. With this time-tested knowledge and experience, we can strategically capture opportunities and guard against dangers through the contract provisions we scrutinize and engineer. We encourage clients to look at legal review of agreements as another layer of protection, one that insurance policies often do not protect businesses from.

Although most litigation results from poorly drafted contracts or ill-conceived partnering of mismatched individuals or companies, even the best drafted contracts can spawn litigation if one of the parties acts in bad faith or out of greed. When that happens, and litigation is the only option, you need an aggressive advocate in your corner. CLG has successfully handled litigation at all court levels, from state courts in Oregon, Washington, and California to federal courts including the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals and the Supreme Court of the United States.

The first approach is always to try and get the opposing party and their counsel to work through contentious issues and try and get the business relationship back on track. We do this through informal frank meetings or mediation. When that fails, we back up our client's position by bringing or defending suits or arbitration claims. Our experience equips our attorneys to take creative and innovative approaches to litigation, quickly assessing the situation to develop a strategy that will deliver results quickly. We uncover evidence and witnesses to build a compelling case and gain leverage, then immediately and skillfully apply that pressure to opposing parties toward an agreed resolution. While our approach often produces an agreed settlement, we are always prepared to take a case to trial or arbitration if a favorable settlement cannot be reached.

Don't hesitate to contact us: If you or your company is facing a complicated legal issue, we will act quickly to resolve it, preventing the problem from draining company resources and distracting operations. Complete our online contact form or call us at 503-446-6261.

Personalized Service And Personal Relationships

Our attorneys take personal ownership of your case from the beginning. We listen to your goals and focus on your needs. Where possible, we evaluate the complexity of each task and use the right person at the best value to complete it.

Although we combine our collective talents to create the synergy and value, we do not overstaff cases with junior attorneys and paralegals. With Chenoweth Law Group, P.C., on your side, you will feel confident knowing that an experienced team is working hard to achieve your goals.

We avoid the traditional trappings of a stodgy law firm where law is a mysterious process. A good lawyer knows how to connect with all different types of clients and explain the process, as well as the pros and cons of each step. We personally invest ourselves in getting to know our clients.

To effectively represent you, we need to understand the dangers you face and the opportunities. Although you may come to Chenoweth Law Group, P.C., with a discrete problem we can solve, we want to build a relationship that keeps you returning for your next challenge or opportunity. We seek to promote our clients' businesses and services whenever we can.

Creative, Flexible, Value-Based Billing

Firms have moved away from providing services solely on an hourly basis. Chenoweth Law Group, P.C., can devise your estate planning, real estate or business contract for a fixed fee. Our law firm offers creative fee arrangements.

In addition to hourly fees, we work for clients on a contingent, flat fee and performance-based fee basis. We are also one of the few firms that offers fixed-price work for certain aspects of litigation.

What if you could get greater certainty about the cost of litigation?

We can work on a fixed-price basis for certain types of litigation or at certain stages of litigation. Our clients return to us because they can predictably budget for their legal needs. They also appreciate our detailed billing invoices showing the time spent on each task. There is no mystery with vague time descriptions and block billing for the work we do. This ensures you see value in our services, not just a legal bill.
