About me


I define myself as a blue collar of the law.  Straight forward, ethical and to the point. Less theory and more practical applications. Armed with a kin business sense and experience developed not in an ivory tower but rather boots on the ground from India, China or simply Spokane, I have helped individuals or/and billion dollar corporations set their business and legal affairs on the right path by being the right partner and advocate.

  • Casey Alan DuBose

    When it comes to international law many large law partners will talk big about their practice, but only carry a few simple transactions to their name. Fred, in contrast, has the experience and credentials to be a true advocate in international transactions. Between being licensed in multiple jurisdictions, being multilingual, and spending years on the ground in Foreign jurisdictions, Fred has built the talent and experience through his many transactions to know how to close, how to preempt international concerns, and how to manage any global legal matter.
