Local Knowledge – Personal Relationships – Sophisticated Expertise

Alaska is a vast place, full of opportunity. But it’s also a small and intimate community. When you do business here, personal relationships and a thorough understanding of the local landscape are important.

JDO is proud to be an integral part of that community. Beginning with our founders, Bill Jermain and Charles Dunnagan, our firm and our lawyers have served as civic leaders and active members of the Anchorage community. Because transactions and disputes reach the most distant parts of Alaska, we go the extra mile and represent our clients with sensitivity and respect for local values. Our lawyers routinely travel throughout the state to serve our clients’ interests in places like Nome, Bethel, Barrow, Kotzebue, Kodiak, Fairbanks and Juneau. Along the way, we have played an important role in the development of Alaska law and policy.

We bring our clients a keen understanding of Alaska’s unique laws, personality and culture – and access to key decision makers and policy makers – a winning combination for business success.
