Dave Frohnmayer Joins Harrang Long

We are very pleased to announce that Dave Frohnmayer, former University of Oregon President, has become “of counsel” to Harrang Long. Frohnmayer retired as president June 30, 2009 after serving 15 years and raising in excess of $1 billion for the institution. He has rejoined the faculty and presently is on sabbatical leave.

In his “of counsel” role with the law firm, Frohnmayer will accept limited and select engagements in legal matters, public policy, leadership, organizational development and strategic consultation. “I have worked with many of the firm’s attorneys for decades in a wide variety of contexts,” Frohnmayer said. “I count them among the best I have ever known in the nation.”

At Harrang Long, Frohnmayer will reunite with several colleagues from his three terms (1981-1991) as Oregon Attorney General. His prior public service also includes three terms in the Oregon House of Representatives, legal adviser to the UO president and dean of the UO law school.“Dave Frohnmayer is a natural fit with our firm,” said firm president Jens Schmidt. “His constitutional scholarship, his knowledge of government, his extraordinary advocacy skills which produced numerous successful arguments in the United States Supreme Court, and his impressive leadership counseling will certainly benefit our clients and our colleagues.”

Frohnmayer, designated UO President Emeritus by the Oregon State Board of Higher Education in July 2009, will continue to teach undergraduates in the Clark Honors College at the University of Oregon during the winter and spring terms.
