Raised in Westport, WA, Brett Spooner is the Founder, Chief Executive Officer, and Managing Partner of Gravis Law, PLLC, a national law firm with headquarters in Richland, Washington. On a day-to-day basis, Brett runs Gravis Law and dedicates much of his free time to the growth and expansion of small businesses and the entrepreneurial ecosystem in the Tri-Cities. As an angel investor, tech enthusiast, and serial entrepreneur, he merges his skills and interests to solve access-to-law problems.
In addition to Gravis Law, Brett is currently the Founder and CEO of Manage Squared, Inc., a software service company that makes legal case management software, and President of a co-working space called Fuse, where one of our offices is located.
Brett also serves on numerous community and private boards, including the Board of the Tri-Cities Regional Chamber of Commerce, MyTri Project, Gesa Credit Union Board, Wildland Labs, Inc., Fuse SPC, Fuse Fund, and State of Motion.
Brett originally entered the legal industry to help small businesses and facilitate innovation and growth of technology and science companies from the business side. He is passionate about the puzzle of business, innovation, growing things that positively impact the community through economic development, and making a meaningful impact on people’s lives. While his primary focus is on serving business clients, he also extends his expertise to aid those seeking estate services.
Brett’s proudest professional accomplishment so far has been building Gravis Law from the ground up. He is also excited about the economic impact of entrepreneurial programs in our communities, such as Fuse’s Launch program.
When he is away from the office, Brett enjoys spending time with his wife and daughters, gardening, mountain biking, hunting, golfing, volunteering, and writing science fiction. He also teaches business and law at Launch University, Fuse, Washington State University Tri-Cities, and Columbia Basin Community College.
