KP partner attorney Josh Newton travels to London twice a year to complete a master’s program in law at the London School of Economics (LSE) and Political Science. Why? Because he says he wants to do the best work possible for his clients, whose livelihoods — and cultures — depend on land and water in the western United States. It’s 8,000 miles from Bend to London, England, but the lessons from London inform his legal work here in Central Oregon. Check out the great feature article in the December issue of The OSB Bulletin (Page 31) to learn more about Josh, his family, and what he’s studying to support his practice and ultimately his clients.
