In 1972 Jim Polsinelli and colleagues formed the firm to serve business and real estate clients in a small office in the historic Country Club Plaza District in Kansas City, Missouri. The firm has continued to see impressive growth over its 40+ year history with expanding practice areas and office additions, most recently in Atlanta, Los Angeles and San Francisco. The additions in these offices is part of our strategic plan to better serve the increasing needs of our clients.
We strive to align our services to our clients' business goals. Doing so has allowed us to attract experienced attorneys across the country seeking a platform best suited to their clients' priorities.

Polsinelli’s firm values have held strong and served to support its dramatic growth:
•We treat one another and our clients with mutual respect
•Our people, our integrity and our reputation are our most valuable assets
•Diversity matters to us and brings true value to our clients
•We provide practical, business-driven legal counsel grounded in an understanding of our clients’ business objectives not just our own
•We recognize the complex challenges that our clients face by ensuring that matters are handled by attorneys at the firm with appropriate experience wherever they may reside; mobilizing to respond and execute with urgency and ownership; and delivering value through a reasonable cost structure that leverages our depth and breadth and works within our clients’ business parameters
