About Tina

Alaska is a land filled with opportunity, and for more than 20 years, Tina Grovier has worked with natural resource developers, Alaska Native Corporations, and regulated utilities to accomplish their goals in our northernmost state. She has assisted clients in negotiating key agreements for project development and operations, acquiring various permits and government approvals, including those from the Alaska Department of Natural Resources, the Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation, and the Alaska Oil & Gas Conservation Commission, and closing financing transactions.

Whether it involves navigating complex regulatory schemes or creating a path forward where one did not exist before, Tina is known for her ability to help clients solve complex problems and get things done.

In its annual survey of America’s most highly regarded attorneys, Chambers and Partners has reported that clients consider Tina to be “excellent, very savvy” and a “great lawyer.” Her clients have also praised her ability to “spot the traps and pitfalls, and … advise on how to make the transaction straightforward.”

Tina leads Stoel Rives’ nationally recognized Environment, Land Use & Natural Resources practice group composed of 70 dedicated legal professionals serving clients from coast to coast. An established firm leader, Tina previously served as the Anchorage Office Managing Partner.
