Say hello to Ryan Bixby! Ryan joined our team in 2005 and is currently one of the Managing Principals and Vice Presidents of the firm. He graduated from Whitman College with a degree in geology and has been working as an environmental consultant since 1998. He spent most of that time performing Phase I and II Environmental Site Assessments (ESAs) in support of property transactions. Ryan is a recognized expert in environmental due diligence support for real estate transactions throughout the Pacific Northwest, and his expertise continues to be retained by the legal community and some of the most active developer and property portfolio clients in the region.
Ryan works closely with our clients to better understand their objectives and make sure the scope accomplishes those goals. “We help interpret the results of our investigations, develop our findings and conclusions, and perform the final review of all our deliverables,” he shared. For the past several years, much of his work has been focused on expert witness projects, something he finds fascinating. “I recently provided expert testimony in federal court, an exciting experience since most environmental cases are resolved before getting to court.”
