Max Forer has joined the firm as an associate in the firm’s business practice group.  In college, he played football while earning his undergraduate degree at the University of Oregon, working his way up from walk-on to scholarship athlete.  Prior to joining the firm, he served as a judicial extern for U.S. District Court Judge John Acosta and Lane County Circuit Court Judge Curtis Conover.  He became a lawyer, after working in the private sector, to assist business owners with legal counsel to realize, grow and expand their enterprises.

“We are proud to have Max join our business practice group,” said Managing Partner Andrew Burns. “His varied experience and his desire to excel make him a great attorney.”

While his legal work now includes all matters of corporate and general business, real estate law and intellectual property, Max previously worked as a gold miner in Fairbanks, Alaska, even appearing on the National Geographic Channel show “Goldfathers.”  He also worked as an extern at Octagon Football, where he tackled the myriad intricacies of NFL contracts.

He received his undergraduate degree from the University of Oregon and his JD from the University of Oregon School of Law.  Max served as an articles editor for the Oregon Law Review and as a Student-Athlete Development Graduate Teaching Fellow, where he ran the mentorship program of the Oregon Athletic Department.

Max is a member of the Multnomah Bar Association Young Lawyers Section and the American Bar Association Business and Real Estate Section. When he’s not working, he enjoys Portland’s great restaurants, and exploring the Pacific Northwest with his wife Jordan.
