Stoel Rives Appoints Tina Grovier As New Anchorage Office Managing Partner

Press Release

ANCHORAGE- Stoel Rives LLP is pleased to announce that Tina Grovier has been appointed the new Office Managing Partner (OMP) of the firm's Anchorage office, effective January 1, 2014. Grovier will be responsible for the day-to-day administrative management of the Anchorage office, which includes more than 20 attorneys and staff. Practices in Anchorage include corporate, environmental and natural resources, real estate and development, tax, government contracting, labor and employment, complex commercial litigation, regulatory and white collar criminal defense matters.

Grovier is one of only three Alaska women currently serving as OMP of the Alaska office of a national law firm.

"I am excited to lead such a skilled team of legal professionals," said Grovier. "Jim Torgerson, who led our office since its inception in 2008, established a very high bar indeed. I look forward to building on our reputation as a provider of superior client service here in Alaska."

Grovier is recognized as a leading natural resources lawyer. During her 19-year career she has helped secure federal and state permits for the first non-conditional state right-of-way for a North Slope natural gas pipeline, Alaska's first heap leach facility, Alaska's first third-party natural gas storage facility and Anchorage's first commercial-grade wind farm. An active member of the Anchorage business community, Grovier has been involved with the United Way as co-chair of the Tocqueville Society and with the YWCA, and has also volunteered her time with AWAIC Summer Solstice and served as a legal advisor for the Anchorage Youth Court.

Grovier received a B.S. from Southwest Missouri State University in 1990, and a J.D. from Washington University School of Law in 1993. She is admitted to practice in Alaska.

Grovier succeeds Jim Torgerson, who is returning to full-time practice, concentrating primarily on commercial and environmental litigation on behalf of Alaska Native corporations and natural resource businesses.
