Bill C. Du Val

Portland, Oregon

Bill Du Val is our senior business and transactions attorney with over 25 years of leadership in the Portland, Oregon business market.

His contracts-centric practice context is all about avoiding litigation and securing strategic advantage for his clients. Bill focuses on M&A, business and legal issues in the manufacturing, technology and cannabis markets, medical services providers, employer’s issues, real estate transactions, corporate and start-up documentation, and franchising.  His clients retain Bill just as often for his strategic guidance as they do for his knowledge of contracts and black letter law. 

Bill is both a connector and a tireless client advocate, promoting their propositions on a national and local scale, from identifying interested acquisition targets to securing recognition and nominations at various awards events.  He was a co-founder of the Oregon Business Brokers’ Association, a member of Angel Oregon (OEN), and active in numerous other business and civic associations and charitable causes. 

Bill’s alter-ego is a surreptitious hobo, having logged thousands of miles in boxcars and gondolas (and aboard the third engine when the weather’s bad…. but don’t tell anyone). The native Oregonian is a proud father of four, assistant coach for all the usual youth sports, and avid Frisbee thrower with his wife, Victoria.
