About Ball Janik LLP

Ball Janik LLP was founded in 1982 with six lawyers and a four-person support staff in Portland, Oregon. Since our firm's inception, we have expanded our capabilities, our professionals, and geographic footprint. Formerly known as Ball Janik & Novack, the firm focused primarily on real property and land use. Over the years, we have grown to include an insightful team of 30-plus attorneys.

In addition to its growing list of practice areas, Ball Janik has expanded geographically, opening offices in Orlando, Florida in January 2014, and in Miami, Florida in June 2019. Our Florida offices are well-known for representing owners with construction and design, construction defect, real estate litigation, and insurance recovery matters. "

The founding partners' vision was to establish a firm focused on performing high quality professional work and advancing clients' objectives, believing that if those two elements were consistently present, the firm would succeed. We have prospered because of the quality of our representation and the confidence that our clients show in us.

Conscious of our roots as a small group of like-minded lawyers and staff, Ball Janik has carried forward the informality and collegiality of its early days. Doors are open. Discussions are encouraged. Decisions are reached on a consensus basis. Lasting client relationships are valued as the ultimate testament to the firm's work. Each person working at Ball Janik understands that in all of our efforts, we are continuing to work on advancing our clients' interests.

Our mission is twofold: to perform high quality professional work that advances the interests of our clients, and to cultivate a firm culture that ensures our professionals and staff will deliver on that promise. Lasting client relationships prove we are fulfilling our mission.

Ball Janik LLP is dedicated to finding and implementing the most effective and efficient solutions to our clients' challenges. We are lean, aggressive and entrepreneurial. We adhere to high standards of ethical conduct and professional courtesy. We are selective in our pursuit of clients and loyal in serving them for the long term.

Ball Janik LLP provides opportunities for individuals to engage cooperatively in a challenging, stimulating, and financially rewarding practice. We succeed by creating a sense of common enterprise among our professionals and staff, who embody a client-focused approach to problem solving.

Thus, we reward creativity, problem solving skills, efficiency, responsiveness, professionalism, and other attributes that build client loyalty and promote the firm's image.

We maintain a hospitable and personally engaging working environment, characterized by high standards of courtesy, strong communications, and constructive feedback.

Ball Janik LLP encourages our employees to participate constructively in the community, and we provide recognition of that involvement. We also recognize that, in order to sustain a satisfying and productive career, each individual must balance the demands of work with family, personal interests and outside commitments.

Office Description:

Ball Janik LLP's founding office opened its doors in 1982 and has played a major role in shaping the landscape of present-day Portland and its surrounding areas. The Portland office provides professional services to clients in real estate, land use, litigation, bankruptcy and creditor rights, business and corporate, construction defect, insurance recovery, and labor and employment. The Portland office is conveniently located in downtown Portland, across the street from the Mark O. Hatfield federal courthouse, one block from beautiful Waterfront Park, and two blocks from MAX, the regional light rail system, which also connects to the innovative Portland Streetcar. The sophistication of the legal practice in Portland rivals that of larger cities. Many of our attorneys relocated to Portland after beginning their careers at prominent firms in larger cities, including Seattle, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, and Washington, DC.
