Ports

Gordon Thomas Honeywell has significant experience in areas of law affecting public ports. These include real estate and land use, environmental clean-ups and environmental insurance coverage, compliance with stormwater and other water quality regulations, labor and employment, public meetings and public records requirements, public bid requirements, and general business counsel.

The firm was retained to facilitate a collaborative, voluntary cleanup of contaminated sediments in Bellingham Bay. We successfully assisted several potentially responsible parties including the Port of Bellingham to achieve necessary regulatory agreements. We also successfully mediated an allocation of liability among the parties, avoiding costly litigation.

The firm’s lawyers have have developed excellent working relationships with key decision makers throughout Washington and whose experience and creativity regularly produce exceptional results in even the most challenging matters.
