Over 30 Years of Experience in Business Law

Seattle Commercial Lawyer

George T. Cowan, Seattle corporate attorney, was raised and educated in the Pacific Northwest.  He graduated from the University of Washington Business School, with a concentration in accounting.  The following year while working on his MBA at Pacific Lutheran University, he received recognition for successfully completing the CPA examination in a single sitting, and he held a Washington CPA license for 20 years.

George finished law school at Seattle University early, and became the first student in the school’s history to receive an appointment to a federal appellate clerkship, serving Judge Eugene Wright on the Ninth Circuit in Seattle.  Following his clerkship he accepted employment with Graham & Dunn in Seattle, where he practiced business, real estate, and commercial law for 15 years before leaving with two of his partners to form the Seattle office of Vandeberg Johnson & Gandara, where he practiced for 17 years.

While principally focused on Washington business issues, George sat for the California Bar Exam after being engaged as counsel by a hotel chain headquartered in southern California, and was admitted to practice in California in 1999.

As described in this website, George has a broad commercial law practice serving the needs of business in the northwest.  When not practicing commercial law, he is busy raising a young family and working on a degree in electrical engineering from Seattle Pacific University.
