In a process that started on a long bike ride a few years prior, Steve Anderson and Art Kreiger chose to join forces in 1988 to follow their shared passion of practicing environmental law at the highest level, in both complex litigation matters and sophisticated transactions without the financial pressures and work-life imbalance inherent in large law firms. They set out to provide top-quality legal services to clients on matters in which they believed. George Hall soon joined them, and over the years, A&K’s culture attracted many former colleagues, as well as new talent, expanding the firm’s mission and services. These attorneys brought their own passions and insights, and they grew their practices in a supportive environment where lawyers were encouraged to bring in challenging and interesting work.
More than 30 years later, A&K is home to top legal talent in environmental and land use law, public law, real estate, insurance law, airport law, construction law, white-collar defense, and internal investigations. Steve and Art are proud to see the firm they founded as home to so many prominent litigators, transactional lawyers, and counselors who came together to share a vision, be leaders in their fields and practice law in the areas that they are passionate about.
We are proud of how we conduct our business, the relationships we forge, and the results that come from our collaborative efforts. Committed to the communities in which we work and live, we provide significant pro bono services to those who are unable to secure critical legal representation on their own. We proudly devote the same attention to detail and thorough representation to our pro bono clients that our paying clients receive. We annually contribute financial support to numerous community and non-profit organizations in our communities. We are also dedicated to building a diverse and equitable law firm environment, specifically through opportunities for underrepresented racial and ethnic students through initiatives such as our A&K’s Diversity Fund, which helps remove financial barriers to law school by providing a $50,000 stipend to a law student annually.
