Foley & Mansfield announced today that it has expanded its profile in the Pacific Northwest with the addition of experienced litigator Diane C. Babbitt, a former partner and head of the Northwest litigation practice at Jackson Jenkins Renstrom. Babbitt will work in the Firm’s new Portland office.

“Our new Portland operations, coupled with the addition of such an experienced professional in that market, is a critical first step in the firm’s strategic growth initiative for the region,” says founding partner Kyle Mansfield. In addition to Babbitt, the firm currently has three attorneys licensed in Oregon who serve clients both regionally and on a national basis.

"Diane is an accomplished trial attorney who has consistently achieved excellent results for clients in bet-the-company product liability, toxic tort and construction litigation,” adds Scott Wood, managing partner of Foley & Mansfield’s Seattle and Portland offices. "We are very pleased to both welcome her to the firm and to enhance the service we provide to all of our clients.”

Foley & Mansfield’s Portland office is located at 1500 SW 1st Avenue in the southwest water front area of downtown Portland, just steps from the Willamette River and Tom McCall Waterfront Park.
