Big firm capabilities. Small firm service.

Ahlers Cressman & Sleight PLLC proudly provides its clients unsurpassed service. From small business issues to multimillion-dollar litigation, we actively represent our clients and aggressively protect their interests. Our mission is to provide the highest quality legal services, performed timely and at a reasonable price.

Our firm represents general contractors, subcontractors, owners, design professionals, and suppliers involved in public and private construction projects throughout the Pacific Northwest and Alaska. We also represent our clients in commercial matters and litigation, real estate transactions and disputes, and business matters. Our firm recognizes the need for thorough analysis and fast turnaround in today’s demanding business environment, and understands that disputes can have significant implications on a construction project. As a result, we work carefully to tailor our services to each client’s needs, objectives, and operations.

About Our Team

With more than a century of combined experience in construction law, we offer our clients high-quality counsel. Many of our lawyers hold significant leadership positions within state and national industry organizations, two of our lawyers are past presidents of the Bar Association’s Construction Law Section, five of our lawyers have served as the Chair of the Associated General Contractors of Washington’s Legal Affairs Committee, and the majority of our lawyers are recognized as Super Lawyers by U.S. News and Business Report. We have represented construction firms before the Supreme Court and the Court of Appeals in numerous precedent setting cases, and have testified before the Legislature. We have committed to excellence within the construction industry, and it shows in our results.

Commitment to Diversity

As a small business, we recognize that small business enterprises are the engines of job creation in the United States. We represent and hold in equal value our smallest clients and the largest construction industry entities. Similarly, we focus on nurturing minority and women-owned start-ups and enterprises. We are committed to the elimination of discrimination in all its forms and embrace a culture of dignity, equity, and inclusion in our firm.
