Richard M. (Mike) Layne is a business lawyer who represents clients in Oregon, Washington, and the Pacific Northwest. Based in Portland, Oregon we develop close working relationships with our clients. We want to learn about your business and understand your needs to develop a practical and cost-effective legal strategy for your business and its owners.
During the past three decades, we have represented numerous investors in securities and stockbroker litigation and corporate disputes. We have successfully handled a number of securities fraud suits on behalf of investors both in court and in FINRA arbitration.
Our personalized representation offers several advantages over large law firms:
Better response time because you have direct access to the lawyer and you will get more personal attention from the lawyer you hired.
Your legal matters will not be delegated to an associate.
Overall legal expense will usually be lower because of higher efficiency.
We can meet in your office or home if that is more convenient for you.
Work directly with Mr. Layne, which ensures there is less chance of misunderstandings and a more direct line of communication.
We have full access to legal research databases giving us library and research facilities equivalent to those of the largest firms.
