More about us.


In 2004, two experienced Seattle business attorneys, Danferd Henke, and Dirk Bartram, opened a business and real estate law firm focused entirely on their clients’ needs.  Their boutique practice allows them to serve people in business and real estate without the administrative and financial burdens and frustrations experienced by their clients in the large-firm setting.  Together, Dan and Dirk bring their large-firm experience to bear in their law firm in providing creative, proactive, high caliber legal work in business and real estate.

Dirk and Dan can help you solve a problem, of course, but more importantly, they focus their attention on preventing problems from arising in the first place.  They bring a forward-thinking approach, based on more than sixty years of collective experience, to your legal matters, handling them personally, without passing them off to less-experienced junior attorneys.  When you hire Henke Bartram, you get the seasoned judgment of a tested business lawyer, every time. Our lawyers receive the highest rating under the Martindale-Hubbell Peer Review Rating ™ program.*
