Alex C. Trauman


Alex is a leading healthcare, business, and real estate lawyer in the Pacific Northwest.

As a partner with Elevate Law Group, Alex has helped business owners thrive for nearly two decades.

Having developed a specialty representing professional practices, Alex has helped clients successfully form, buy, maintain and/or sell hundreds of healthcare practices including dental, veterinary, general medicine and specialty practices including transactions involving private equity buyers.

Alex routinely assists CPAs and lawyers with succession planning and professional practice management.

Given the emergence of private equity investments into the healthcare, accounting and legal services industries, Alex routinely advises clients on the complicated legal and regulatory structures involved in doing business with corporate-owned management or support organizations.

Alex’s real estate clients rely on his expertise in negotiating and documenting commercial real estate transactions and he’s successfully negotiated hundreds of leases.

With almost 20 years of experience in employment law, Alex provides pragmatic experience in structuring and negotiating employment relationships, including executive compensation and severance packages. As a former litigator, Alex prides himself on helping clients avoid employment disputes and efficiently resolving disputes when they cannot be avoided.

Alex has been selected by his peers as a Super Lawyers Magazine Rising Star from 2009 through 2019 and a Super Lawyer from 2020 through 2024.
