Greg Lynch is a seasoned trial lawyer and senior partner of Lynch Conger McLane, LLP.  He is admitted to practice before all Oregon courts, the United States District Court for the District of Oregon, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, and the U.S. Supreme Court. Greg’s practice focuses primarily on business and commercial litigation matters. Greg is particularly known for his negotiation skills, and he often settles cases before they go to trial, thereby saving his clients that expense.  When a case does go to trial, Greg’s reputation as an accomplished trial lawyer precedes him.  As a skilled negotiator, he is in demand as a mediator and arbitrator, and serves as a judge pro tempore in state court.  He represents the eastern Oregon Catholic Diocese of Baker and he prepared and filed the amicus brief for the Physicians for Compassionate Care in the U.S. Supreme Court assisted-suicide case of Gonzales v. Oregon.  He also represents clients in drafting and negotiating contracts, as well as other business law matters.
