About Ball Janik LLP

Ball Janik LLP was established in 1982 in Portland, Oregon, with a team of six attorneys and a four-person support staff. The founding partners' primary focus was on real property and land use. Over the years, the firm expanded its capabilities and professionals, and rebranded as Ball Janik & Novack. The firm currently has more than 30 attorneys and a growing list of practice areas.

Ball Janik has also expanded its geographic footprint by opening offices in Orlando, Florida in January 2014, and in Miami, Florida in June 2019. The Florida offices have earned a reputation for representing owners with construction and design, construction defect, real estate litigation, and insurance recovery matters.

The firm's success is attributed to the founders' vision of providing high-quality professional work and advancing clients' objectives. This approach has earned the firm lasting client relationships and prosperity.

Ball Janik values its informal and collegial culture, which has been maintained since the firm's early days. Discussions are encouraged, and decisions are reached on a consensus basis. The firm prioritizes lasting client relationships and advancing clients' interests in all its efforts.

The firm's mission is two-fold: to perform high-quality professional work that advances clients' interests, and to cultivate a firm culture that ensures professionals and staff will deliver on that promise. Ball Janik is dedicated to finding and implementing effective and efficient solutions to clients' challenges, while maintaining high standards of ethical conduct and professional courtesy.

Ball Janik encourages creativity, problem-solving skills, efficiency, responsiveness, professionalism, and other attributes that build client loyalty and promote the firm's image. The firm provides a hospitable and personally engaging working environment, characterized by high standards of courtesy, strong communications, and constructive feedback.

Ball Janik also recognizes the importance of employee involvement in the community and supports it. The firm believes in the importance of balancing the demands of work with family, personal interests, and outside commitments to sustain a satisfying and productive career.

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.
