Ball Janik provides comprehensive general counsel services to community associations in Oregon and Washington including:

  • All aspects of governance and compliance, including interpretation of rights and obligations under governing documents
  • Creation and amendments to governing documents
  • Development and enforcement of rules and regulations
  • Collection of delinquent assessments
  • Risk management and insurance
  • Construction defect claims
  • Vendor contracts
  • Resolution of disputes with third parties

Additionally, Ball Janik’s Oregon office works with community association clients in collecting delinquent accounts and resolving disputes with delinquent homeowners, with no up-front costs to the association. We provide a fast–track resolution process to bring delinquent accounts current in a cost–effective manner. As part of that process, Ball Janik offers community associations a fixed–fee engagement and access to real–time information detailing our progress on each delinquent collection account through our online collections system.


Drawing on its experience in bankruptcy and creditor rights, real estate, land use, construction law, insurance recovery, and environmental law, the firm is well known for assisting community associations in litigation matters. For example, Ball Janik has successfully represented community associations in eminent domain (“takings”) proceedings against local governments, in shareholder derivative actions against developers, in easement and boundary disputes, and in claims against property and casualty insurers.


Ball Janik’s general counsel services are informed and enhanced by one of the most successful construction defect teams in the Pacific Northwest. To read more about the construction defect practice, CLICK HERE.
