Practice/Organization Description

Operating from six strategic locations — Anchorage, Beijing, New York, Portland, Seattle, and Washington, D.C. — Garvey Schubert Barer represents clients locally, nationally and internationally, with a special focus on the Pacific Rim. We provide practical, client-centered solutions to established market leaders, newly launched enterprises and governmental bodies.

Industries and Clients

Since its founding in 1966, Garvey Schubert Barer has counseled clients across virtually all industry sectors, with a special emphasis in international trade and transportation, maritime law, healthcare, technology, manufacturing, financial services, real estate, communications and media, and arts and entertainment. We represent middle-market companies as well as a broad range of privately-held businesses, investment firms, financial institutions, nonprofit organizations, government entities and individuals.

Maximizing Clients' Success

We help clients capitalize on business opportunities and challenges. Working as partners with them, we look beyond conventional wisdom to find practical, innovative, cost-effective legal solutions and business strategies.

National and Global Reach

Using sophisticated technologies, we leverage resources and capabilities at all six of our offices, delivering seamless service no matter where a client's needs arise. We have worldwide access to lawyers through our membership in Globalaw, a non-exclusive network of 94 independent law firms, with more than 5,000 lawyers in 170 cities. We also belong to the Participating Group, a multistate domestic network of 14 law firms. When clients have needs beyond our usual geographic reach, these two networks enable us to meet those needs through the use of quality law firms and lawyers we trust.

Quality Services, Personal Attention

Clients who in the past worked with large national law firms frequently comment approvingly about the sophistication and quality of Garvey Schubert Barer’s services. They also appreciate the partnering approach we take to their legal problems and that our manageable size fosters. We are large and sophisticated enough to handle the most complex legal matters, yet small enough to offer the personal, hands-on approach clients want from their law firm.

Exceeding Expectations

Our lawyers and staff work hard at not just meeting clients’ needs but also anticipating them, and understanding their business and industries. We regularly solicit service evaluations from clients through personal interviews and our online survey tool. Using this input, we constantly fine-tune and improve our client service. Client input has also been extremely valuable in helping us develop products that deliver legal services more effectively and cost-efficiently. Examples include AdviceOnline, an online labor and employment resource, and the Win² Alternative Dispute Resolution process.

Leading the Way in Pro Bono Contributions

Garvey Schubert Barer is a national leader in pro bono and community service. Based on our regular hourly rates, the pro bono legal work we provide each year to the communities we serve consistently exceeds $2 million.
