An attorney in the firm’s Business and Taxation group, Courtney Kohler’s practice focuses on assisting businesses and business owners with a variety of legal needs. She often works on business entity formation and maintenance, purchase and sale transactions, contract review, and corporate governance. Courtney’s ambition and love of problem-solving led her to attend the University of Oregon School of Law.

Influenced by her upbringing in a small agricultural town and her undergraduate studies at the University of California at Davis, Courtney focused her studies on natural resource law and water law. While in law school, Courtney clerked at the Department of Interior’s Pacific Northwest Regional Office of the Solicitor, served as a Staff Editor for the Journal of Environmental Law and Litigation, and studied water resource allocation issues as an Oceans, Coasts and Watersheds Fellow with the University of Oregon’s Environmental and Natural Resources Law Center. Before joining the team at Saalfeld Griggs, Courtney previously clerked for the Hon. Mustafa T. Kasubhai at the Lane County Circuit Court.

Courtney channels her interest in problem-solving to a new focus – business law. Her background in natural resources law enhances her ability to assist clients with business transactions that implicate federal and state regulatory compliance issues. Still passionate about problem-solving and planning, Courtney enjoys helping the firm’s clients think prospectively, plan for the future and navigate any challenges that arise along the way.
