I have practiced business, corporate and securities law in Oregon since 1966.

On your side

Jack Platten On Your Side

I have devoted more than forty years to meeting the legal needs of Oregon businesses and individuals. I graduated from the University of Chicago Law School where I simultaneously served on the Law Review and practiced as a legal aid volunteer on the South Side of Chicago, which really was the “baddest” part of town. Whether you need to start, buy or sell a business, secure financing, negotiate with partners or deal with employees, suppliers or landlords, I have substantial practical experience in solving problems and finding solutions. I emphasize prompt service and personal attention to your needs and goals. My practice areas include organization, financing, operation, purchase and sale of small businesses; choice and organization of business entities; corporate finance and securities; negotiation and drafting of shareholder agreements, employment agreements, leases and other business contracts. I have dealt with large and small businesses and their problems, ranging from corner taverns and grocery stores to multi-state automobile repair businesses, regional waste haulers and landfills – and almost everything in between. I have served as a member of the Beaverton Planning Commission, am a member of the Tualatin Hills Park and Recreation District Citizens Bond Oversight Committee, and have been appointed as a neutral arbitrator by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority for disputes between public customers and securities industry professionals.
