In house vs. outhouse

Hey, you law firms out there! Want to get on the dole with the Portland Development Commission? They're looking to hire some outside lawyers::

To meet Commission needs and activities, the Commission desires to designate firms to provide a broad range of professional Legal services in support of and in close coordination with Commission staff. Selected Contractors will provide Legal Services on an as-needed basis in any or all of the following areas:

• Documentation of multifamily residential loans, including bond or tax credit financing.

• Small business loan reviews.

• Advice regarding tax increment financing and urban renewal.

• Real Property acquisition, both voluntary and by condemnation.

• Labor and personnel matters, including investigation and litigation.

• Sophisticated advice in the creation and implementation of financing tools.

• Owner or lender representation in construction contracting, including public bidding.

• Owner or lender representation in environmental matters, including the RI/FS process

• Loan collection matters, including bankruptcy and secured transaction litigation.

Note, too, that in addition to feeding you agency work, they'll throw you some private clients, too -- "owner or lender representation." Good eatin'.

I don't know, though; some of that stuff looks pretty basic. Can't in-house counsel handle some of this?

Anyway, lawyers, now's your chance -- the deadline for applying is a week from Thursday. It will be interesting to see who gets the work -- and if and when the PDC will tell us.
