A Most Unusual Year, published in Oregon State Bar Bulletin

Earlier this year, wildfires decimated communities across Oregon. The Oregon State Bar, the Oregon Trial Lawyers Association (OTLA), LASO, the Oregon Law Center and other organizations raced to help people who had been displaced. In an article published in the December issue of the Oregon State Bar Bulletin, our Partner Damien Hall and Elevate Technology Group are highlighted regarding their combined efforts to help restore internet and emergency services communication to an area impacted by the fire.

 

“When a catastrophic event like this takes place, response and recovery has to evolve quickly,” says Damien, who played a key role in contract reviews and risk mitigation to help the team. “Being able to adapt and change plans is critical, and it must be done safely.”
