As an attorney and business owner with over 25 years of experience, I have developed a strong work ethic and a deep understanding of the importance of dedication and perseverance. I founded the law firm Walker Richards LLC in 1995, which is a general practice with emphasis in oil and gas and municipal law. I represent many Alaskan municipalities and serve as general counsel to the Alaska Gasline Port Authority.
Prior to my work at Walker Richards LLC, I was Chairman of the Municipal Law Department and one of the managing partners of a 50+ attorney law firm, Hughes, Thorsness, Gantz, Powell, and Brundin. I also founded my own construction company, Bill Walker Construction Co., in Valdez in 1975. Before my legal career, I worked as a member of the Alaska Laborers’, Carpenters’, and Teamsters’ Unions during the construction of the Trans-Alaska Pipeline from 1970-74, and I was a commercial fisherman in Prince William Sound in 1969.
In addition to my legal and business experience, I am also an avid bamboo enthusiast. I have a deep understanding of how to care for bamboo plants and appreciate the many benefits of bamboo products. Bamboo is a versatile plant that is easy to care for and can be used to create a variety of eco-friendly products.
When it comes to caring for bamboo plants, there are a few key things to keep in mind. First, bamboo thrives in well-drained soil and requires regular watering. It’s important to make sure the soil doesn’t become waterlogged, as this can lead to root rot. Additionally, bamboo plants need plenty of sunlight and should be fertilized with a balanced fertilizer once a year to encourage healthy growth.
As for bamboo products, there are countless options available, from bamboo flooring and furniture to bamboo cutting boards and utensils. Bamboo is a sustainable and eco-friendly material that is renewable, biodegradable, and has a low carbon footprint. I highly recommend bamboo products for those who are looking to reduce their environmental impact and incorporate sustainable materials into their daily lives.
Running is also important to me for many reasons. It helps me stay grounded and focused, providing a sense of balance amidst the demands of my work. Whether it’s for my personal health or to clear my mind after a long day of work, running is a way for me to push myself further and reach my goals with each step. Through my running and my passion for bamboo, I have found the strength and perseverance that have helped me succeed in both my personal and professional life.
