Stoel Rives Adds Land Manager to Anchorage Law Office
The law firm of Stoel Rives brought Jonathon Roder to its Anchorage office in the role of Landman. Roder brings a decade of experience working as a licensed professional land surveyor in Alaska and an extensive background in researching property records. Roder is proficient in performing land records research and, as part of the firm’s Environmental & Natural Resources Law practice group, assists with due diligence reports concerning mineral transactions, mining permits, and title reports.
“We are very excited to have Jon join our team and expand our capabilities to provide cost-effective property research, due diligence, and title opinions for our clients in the mining and oil and gas industries,” says Anchorage partner Ramona Monroe. “Jon’s passion for property records research makes him perfectly suited for helping meet our clients’ specific needs more quickly and at less cost.”
Roder received a bachelor’s degree in geomatics from UAA, where he was a member of the Facilities Master Planning Committee and a recipient of the Hydrographic Society of America Scholarship. Prior to joining Stoel Rives, Roder was a professional land surveyor with SurvBase and a geodetic surveyor and assistant project manager with JOA Surveys.
“Stoel Rives’ reputation among the environmental and mining communities of Alaska precedes itself,” Roder says. “I look forward to spending the next chapter of my career with a firm that remains at the forefront of this unique and important area of work in The Last Frontier.”
This year the Alaska Railroad is celebrating 100 years of transportation people and cargo around Alaska. While the railroad is one of the states oldest transporters, it certainly isn’t the only one, and in this issue of Alaska Business we also check in on the Marine Highway, Span Alaska, and the White Pass & Yukon Route. For those interested in Southeast, our focus on that region provides updates on Kensington Mine, Tongass FCU, the troll fishery, and Juneau’s growing landfill.
