Tim Hering, a partner in the firm’s Real Estate and Construction groups, handles real estate transactions and real estate litigation in both Oregon and Washington.  His practice involves the acquisition, sale and leasing of a variety of properties, including shopping centers, office buildings, industrial parks and multifamily housing.  Tim’s clients include owners, property managers, landlords, tenants, lenders, trustees and others.  He has extensive experience in all phases of commercial and residential leasing, from initial lease negotiation and drafting to lease enforcement and evictions.  Having litigated numerous real estate and business disputes over the years, Tim brings that experience to bear on his transactional work.  He has been selected as a Rising Star in the area of Real Estate Law by Oregon Super Lawyers.

Tim is in the unique (unenviable?) position of being both a Husky and a Duck, earning his bachelor’s degree from the University of Washington and his J.D. from the University of Oregon.  He enjoys living in Portland with his wife and daughter, sharing the bike lanes, and experiencing the ever-shifting restaurant and craft beer scene.
