Lovinger Kaufmann LLP began as Thomas H. Nelson & Associates in 1996, when Tom Nelson left the Portland firm of Stoel Rives to establish a small firm specializing in energy and utility law. Today, Jeff Lovinger and Ken Kaufmann, two attorneys who worked as associates for Tom Nelson, own and manage the Firm. Associate Charles von Reis and Office Manager Dana Hurley assist in carrying on the Firm’s tradition of providing quality legal services specific to energy and utility law.
Although the name of the Firm has changed since its inception in 1996, Lovinger Kaufmann has retained its small, personal atmosphere, its tailored practice, and its reasonable fees, while its attorneys have grown exponentially in experience. Our goal is to pass this extensive experience in energy and utility law on to our clients, and to provide friendly, responsive service.
