A multi-specialty law firm, Lane Powell has helped emerging and established businesses navigate the Pacific Northwest and beyond for more than 135 years. Respected clients including Nordstrom and Wells Fargo turn to us for trusted legal counsel. In fact, Fortune 500 companies including Home Depot, Nike, Tesoro, Wells Fargo and Nordstrom have named Lane Powell as one of the prestigious "Go-To Law Firms of Top U.S. Companies®."
With over 200 attorneys in offices located in Seattle, Wash., Portland, Ore.; Tacoma, Wash.; Anchorage, Alaska; and London, England, we're thoroughly versed in the industries of the Pacific Northwest as well as the legal issues that face our clients on a regional, national and international level.
Many of our attorneys are nationally recognized leaders in their fields. Our clients benefit not only from some of the best legal minds, but the best business minds too: attorneys who are on top of the law, who are intimately familiar with the business environment, and know the emerging risks and opportunities of their industries and practice groups.
We stress a team approach and shared accountability for solving problems. The business world is growing increasingly specialized, and that need is reflected in our multiple practice areas and industry groups. Our clients benefit from the specialized expertise of individual attorneys as well the collective capabilities of our teams -- attorneys who thrive on putting their minds and expertise together to come up with creative, cost-effective and positive resolutions.
We're in it for the long haul. There's a reason we've enjoyed long-term relationships with Nordstrom and many other clients. First and foremost, we don't take our relationships for granted. We work with clients to build their business. We offer forward-thinking, long-term legal resolutions, not short-sighted approaches. Then there's the sundown rule: we resolve to return our clients' calls by the end of the day.
We're dedicated to helping our communities thrive. We have strong ties to more than the business communities of the Pacific Northwest. As a Firm and as individuals, we are involved directly in a wide variety of worthwhile organizations that have significantly contributed to community progress.
