While Jeff began his law career at Tonkon Torp in 2006, he recently rejoined the firm after spending about a year and a half in-house as the Associate General Counsel for Banfield Pet Hospital. At Banfield, he engaged with business stakeholders on commercial contracts, mergers and acquisitions, risk advising, and analysis. This experience gives Jeff an understanding of what clients and in-house counsel are looking for in an attorney and from a law firm.
Outside the office, Jeff enjoys hiking, exploring Oregon’s wine country, watching movies, traveling, and spending time with his family.
