Success Stories

Double Down: Deal of a Lifetime
When Double Down Interactive, a social gaming startup in Seattle that was less than two years old, received a bid from the giant slot-machine maker International Game Technology, they turned to their attorneys at Davis Wright Tremaine to see them through the deal. With negotiating help from partners Stuart C. Campbell and Sarah English Tune, the company was purchased for an eye-popping $500 million in January 2012. In this short video, Double Down president Glenn Walcott talks with Campbell and Tune about how they made the deal work.
Mobiata Mobiata LLC Sale to Expedia
DWT represented this creator of the best-selling mobile travel app, Flight Track, in its sale to Expedia, adding Mobiata's talent, technology and apps to Expedia's suite of online travel capabilities. "Sarah Tune and the team at DWT worked tirelessly to make the acquisition a success," says Ben Kazez, Mobiata's founder. "With an incredibly ambitious one-week closing timeline, they worked insane hours while never losing their professionalism, their skill at educating the client, or their prowess at staying on top of every detail of the acquisition."
Inn at the 5th Inn at the 5th
When successful entrepreneur Brian Obie decided that a new boutique inn would complement his iconic Fifth Street Public Market in Eugene, Ore., he turned to DWT for guidance with his first foray into lodging. The Market, a 1929 building that houses an eclectic mix of shops, restaurants, cafes, office space, and services, has long been the No. 1 tourist destination in Eugene. So, when Nike vacated a large retail space, Mr. Obie knew how to fill the gap.

Seattle Children's Hospital, the region's leading tertiary pediatric health care center, found itself facing a critical shortage of beds to accommodate growing patient needs. Expansion of the hospital required approval from the City of Seattle of a Master Plan for growth.

The Seattle Children's team partnered with Davis Wright Tremaine to navigate what one member of the Seattle City Council characterized as one of the most complex land use proposals ever encountered by the City of Seattle.
Harvest Wind Project Harvest Wind Project
Four electric utilities in Washington and Oregon jointly developed the Harvest Wind Project in south-central Washington, a facility with 43 wind turbines with a total nameplate capacity of 98.9 megawatts, enough to power more than 23,000 homes.

Davis Wright had represented two of the clients, Cowlitz PUD and Lakeview Light & Power, in connection with the 205 megawatt White Creek wind project in 2006-2008. The other two clients, the Eugene Water & Electric Board and Peninsula Light Co., came into the deal in 2008 during the early development process.
