Christopher Luhrs, a 2010 JD/MBA graduate of Gonzaga University School of Law, where he was president of the Gonzaga Society for Law & Business, has joined the Olympia-Tacoma law firm of Phillips Burgess. He will focus his practice in the areas of real estate, construction, land use, and business law.
Luhrs received his undergraduate degree in finance from the University of Colorado in 2007. Since graduation from law school, he has been a senior analyst for Promontory Financial Group in Denver, a quality control analyst for Clayton Fixed Income Services, also in Denver, and an attorney with the law firm of McCarthy & Holthus, Seattle, representing major American financial institutions, including Bank of America.
“We are pleased to welcome an attorney of Chris’ talent and experience to Phillips Burgess,” noted firm co-founder Heather Burgess. “Our client base continues to expand, and the opportunity to provide real estate-related legal services that support our region’s growth and development has never been greater.
“The addition to our team of another highly capable, committed lawyer is good news for the firm and even better news for the outstanding clients we are privileged to serve.”
The newest Phillips Burgess lawyer, who will practice in the firm’s Tacoma office, has done both transactional and trial-related work on behalf of banks, loan servicers, foreclosure trustees, and title companies. He has represented private and commercial clients in property sales, boundary/survey disputes, homeowners’ association matters, loan modification agreements, and related matters.
