Two Veteran Attorneys Join Davis Wright Tremaine in Anchorage
NOVEMBER 1, 2011 – Michael Jungreis, who has three decades of experience representing varied business clients in Alaska, including those in the mining, oil and gas industries, and Lisa D. Doehl, a natural resources attorney for 19 years, have joined Davis Wright Tremaine LLP in the firm’s Anchorage office. Jungreis has joined as a partner; Doehl is of counsel.
Jungreis and Doehl, who previously worked together at Hartig Rhodes Hoge & Lekisch PC, will significantly expand the real property, natural resources/mining law, and litigation practices at DWT.
“Alaska is the center of a vast natural-resources economy, with remarkable opportunities and complex legal and regulatory challenges that are unique to this state,” said Joseph Reece, partner-in-charge of DWT’s Anchorage office, who also practices in the real property/land use group. “Michael and Lisa bring highly developed skills and knowledge that can help all of our Alaska clients maximize their success.”
Jungreis serves on the board of the Resource Development Council for Alaska, a statewide business association. His recent work includes the acquisition and sale of commercial property, mining property acquisition, formation of mining ventures, oil and gas transactions, and commercial financing issues. His varied work on complex commercial litigation includes disputes in the real estate, oil and gas, construction, banking, and insurance areas. He also has considerable experience assisting businesses with corporate matters.
“I’m delighted to be able to bring my practice to a firm with the scope, reputation, and significant resources of Davis Wright Tremaine,” said Jungreis. “All of my clients will benefit.”
Doehl has been advising two mining companies on a variety of matters and assisting other companies with regard to contaminants, gas exploration licensing, commercial property leases and development, and litigation. She came to private practice from the U.S. Department of the Interior, where she worked on matters related to the National Petroleum Reserve-Alaska, Alaska Native allotments, endangered species, property issues and more for the Bureau of Land Management, National Park Service, Bureau of Indian Affairs, and the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service.
“The work I enjoy most involves natural resources, environmental, wildlife, and land management and title issues,” says Doehl. “I look forward to expanding my ability to serve clients in these areas as a member of the team at Davis Wright.”
Jungreis earned his J.D. from the University of Miami School of Law and his B.A. from the University of Chicago. Doehl earned her J.D. (cum laude) and a Masters in Urban Planning from the University of Illinois College of Law and her B.A. at Columbia University.
