Brian D. Flagler

Managing Partner
Line

Brian founded Flagler Law Group in Sisters, Oregon in the spring of 2006 to serve the legal needs of organizations which publish and distribute Christian media. Originally from North Carolina, he and his family moved back to the southeast in 2013, at which point he opened the firm’s Asheville, NC office.

Before founding the firm, Brian served as vice president of administration & general counsel of Multnomah Publishers, where he led the human resources, information technology and operations departments, was responsible for all corporate legal matters for the company, and served as a member of Multnomah's executive leadership team. Previously, Brian practiced intellectual property and corporate law in the Portland, Oregon office of Davis Wright Tremaine LLP and in the Atlanta, Georgia office of Troutman Sanders LLP.  Brian also served as adjunct instructor of intellectual property law at Clayton College & State University. He holds a law degree from the University of Virginia School of Law. Brian and his wife Amy have three boys and enjoy hiking the mountain trails and paddling the many rivers and lakes surrounding Asheville.

Brian launched the firm in response to a sermon on John 15, feeling called to "bear fruit" through more than one Christian publishing organization. He would enjoy the opportunity to share the full story with you personally over a cup of coffee at the next industry event.
