Lisa Chaiet Rahman

Lisa loves a good challenge. Even better, she loves a good challenge with a great team. With her colleagues at Northwest Resource Law, Lisa collaborates with her clients to solve complex problems. She uses her love of science, the outdoors, and the law to help clients successfully navigate environmental and land use laws and regulations to create opportunity from difficult situations.

Lisa’s practice involves environmental issues under Washington’s Model Toxics Control Act (MTCA) and the federal Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA), focusing her efforts on cost-recovery and allocation litigation and environmental insurance disputes. She uses her extensive experience regarding environmental due diligence, site investigation, regulatory compliance assessments, and cleanup of contaminated sites to counsel clients about the risks and opportunities of buying, selling, and redeveloping polluted property.

Prior to becoming a lawyer, Lisa was a nonprofit program director and outdoor educator. She has climbed mountains around the world and previously worked in science support in Antarctica. She maintains an active civil rights pro bono practice.
