The Art of Results

Public Records Litigation

State and federal laws favor the disclosure of public records to further the transparency of public agencies and officials. In some circumstances, however, sensitive records are exempt from disclosure pursuant to specific legislative exemptions. We help private individuals and companies understand Oregon, Washington, and federal public records disclosure requirements and exemptions, and where disclosure of records containing our client’s sensitive information is threatened, we have filed litigation that has succeeded in protecting our client’s information from disclosure. Our public records expertise is useful for other matters, too. Where a public agency may have information that is relevant to a client, we know how to efficiently pursue public records requests to support our client’s business or litigation strategy.
