Throughout Alaska’s history, Denali, “The Great One,” has represented rugged strength and dependability. And for over 80 years, the attorneys at Hughes White Colbo & Tervooren, LLC have mirrored the qualities of North America’s highest peak to meet the challenging legal needs of individuals and businesses throughout Alaska.
Founded in Anchorage in 1939 as Davis & Renfrew—20 years before Alaska statehood—the firm has maintained its unique pioneer spirit throughout the decades. In the 1940s and 50s, our founding partners served territorial residents and businesses in the areas of real estate, fishing, timber, mining, transportation, and of course, construction. As the state grew in the 1960s and 70s so too did the firm, taking on unique and interesting legal problems arising from oil discoveries in Cook Inlet and Prudhoe Bay, Alaska’s newly established statehood and the construction of the 800-mile Trans-Alaska Pipeline.
Today, Hughes White represents businesses and individuals in the areas of litigation, product liability, insurance, environmental law, employment law, family law, condemnation and eminent domain, real estate, as well as probate, wills and estate planning. As seasoned and experienced trial attorneys representing local, national and international clients, we are highly regarded and trusted, not only by our clients, co-counsel and in-house counsel, but also by judges and opposing counsel.
Over the years, Hughes White has earned recognition as one of Alaska’s top law firms. The hallmark of our continuing success is our commitment to practicing at the highest level of professionalism and integrity, with an unwavering commitment to excellence.
