Rob Le Chevallier practices business law, business formation, estate planning, trust administration, real estate law, and corporate financing. Rob serves as corporate counsel for a variety of manufacturing and service companies. He has been described by the Oregonian as “the legal profession’s equivalent of a midwife” to hundreds of businesses in the Portland area.
Rob particularly focuses on the estate planning needs of business owners, who are often so preoccupied with their business that they neglect their own succession issues. Rob prepares estate plans for business owners and other high net-worth individuals and their families with an emphasis on succession planning.
In his free time Rob Le Chevallier enjoys spending time with his wife, Denise, their five children and five grandchildren.
