About Gavin

Learn Gavin’s areas of practice.

I help startups, entrepreneurs, and business owners identify and reach goals. I assist clients with forming and structuring entities, raising capital from investors through equity and debt financings, protecting intellectual property, and drafting contracts to protect the client’s interests. I use the tools and experience I have both as an attorney and entrepreneur to create practical legal strategies for each particular client.

I work as part of a team of entrepreneurial-minded business lawyers who provide practical advice, transparent flat rates, and quick turnaround times.

We use custom technology to decrease costs, increase efficiency, and provide the highest quality legal services at competitive rates. We offer transparent flat rates, so you will know upfront what services you will receive and at what price. We remove unnecessary legalese and craft our documents so they are easier to understand. We are accessible; we keep you informed on your matter and respond promptly to your questions and concerns.

We help businesses with all aspects of startup and operation, including business formations, contracts, intellectual property protection, securities (financing), commercial real estate, and mergers and acquisitions.  

Outside the office I enjoy spending time with my wife, two sons, and dog; hanging out outside: hiking, running, backpacking, fly fishing, skiing, BBQing, watching the hops in my backyard grow, and rock climbing. Experimenting with brewing beer; swimming and waterskiing at Lake Chelan; rooting for the Seattle Seahawks; and drinking good coffee and IPAs.

Great lawyer for your new startup
To small tech companies, like Weka Interactive, inVigor is a breath of fresh air. The flat rates & quick response times allows us to move quickly while staying within budget. Gavin has been great to work with, and has handled some challenging agreements without missing a beat. He has been more than fair, enthusiastic, and highly professional in his approach. If you are a small company, or startup, I would highly recommend him.

knowledgeable with excellent client service
Mr. Gavin Johnson was instrumental in the formation of our non-profit organization. Mr. Johnson not only guided our organization around the pitfalls that could trip us up in our formation, but he ensured that our organization had a sound foundation. His knowledge of business helped us address many issues before they became problems. Although we are a small client for the Invigor Group, we always received prompt attention. Our questions were always addressed thoughtfully and with appropriate depth. The professionalism demonstrated to our organization was fantastic. It has been a pleasure working with Mr. Johnson and the Invigor team.

Personable, Professional, Intelligent
Mr. Gavin Johnson recently helped me in the formation of a business I run in the world of finance. Gavin and the team at inVigor were extremely involved, constantly staying in contact and walking me through what can be a long an arduous process. Whether it was by email or phone, Gavin was in contact with me almost every single day; making the entire legal process very transparent and keeping me involved. At first I was apprehensive as inVigor is a newer firm in this field but after meeting the partners, Gavin included, I knew that these three were the right ones for the job. I wholeheartedly recommend Gavin and inVigor Law not only because they did amazing legal work but because they are actually people you'll enjoy working with and that's something I haven't been able to say about an attorney or a firm I've worked with in the past.

This attorney is on his way to the head of the pack
Gavin Johnson very capably worked at my law firm while a top law student and has kept me informed on the successes of his law career since then. Unlike the understandingly slow pace of many new lawyers starting their careers, Gavin has hit the ground running. He appears to be in front of his peers representing clients in his field.
