Will Flender is a general practitioner with experience in a wide range of civil legal issues. Prior to attending law school, Will worked for several non-profit organizations, including Vermont Land Trust, and held a number of volunteer positions with different non-profit organizations and the City of Burlington. The experience he gained in the fields of land conservation, land use, non-profit organizations, and other areas fed his interest in legal matters and led him to Vermont Law School. After law school, Will developed a broad background of legal and non-legal skills, which allow him to assist individual and organizational clients with their diverse legal needs.
Before becoming a solo practitioner, Will worked as an associate at a Vermont law firm that primarily represents Vermont cities and towns. Will focused on matters involving real estate, local land use permitting, zoning enforcement, bankruptcy, as well as an array of other areas, involving both litigation and transactional matters. During law school, Will gained practical legal skills in real estate practice, estate planning, contract review, the legislative process, municipal government, and more through internships with the Vermont League of Cities and Towns Municipal Assistance Center, City of Burlington Attorney’s Office, Vermont Legislative Council, and the Law Office of Daniel F. Grossman.
Will lives in Burlington with his wife, daughter, dog and cats. In his spare time, Will is an active volunteer with the Vermont Bicycle and Pedestrian Coalition, the Lake Champlain Land Trust and Local Motion. Outside of work, Will spends his time riding his bike, hiking, working outside, and generally enjoying the beautiful and unique state of Vermont.
