Mr. Allred is a retired shareholder and litigated environmental and natural resources actions in Utah, California, Montana, Wyoming, and Nevada. Actions have been brought under a variety of federal and state environmental and natural resource statutes and under common law. In the course of these he worked with numerous scientific, medical, economic, and technical expert witnesses and consultants.

He assisted U.S. clients with international joint ventures, distributorships and licensing arrangements in Europe, Asia, Africa, Latin America, Canada, and Mexico. In this connection he advised clients regarding compliance with U.S. and certain foreign commercial laws relating to international transactions.

In the early years of his practice Mr. Allred also litigated numerous securities and employment cases. He successfully represented the mutual fund industry before the legislatures of Utah, Kansas, and the state of Washington in the early 1980s when mutual funds (opposed in these states by the banking industry) first sought to offer investors a market rate of interest on money market funds. (There was no opposition at the federal level.)

For 20 years he served as Parsons Behle & Latimer’s representative to Terralex, an international association of some 100 law firms around the world comprising some 15,000 attorneys. During this period Mr. Allred also served as international chair and co-chair of the Environmental Law Practice Group of Terralex. In this role he organized and chaired numerous multi-jurisdictional legal education programs throughout the world.

Mr. Allred served on Parsons Behle & Latimer’s board of directors, management committee, pension committee, and as chair of its hiring committee.
