Our Firm and Our History
Why choose McEwen Gisvold? Meet Our Attorneys
McEwen Gisvold LLP is committed to the highest level of service, professionalism, and value for our clients. In many ways, we have a "big firm" practice, but without some of the difficulties confronted by clients at large law firms. As a result, McEwen Gisvold LLP attorneys are often retained by Fortune 500 companies on the one hand, and new start-ups on the other. Generally, the lawyer you hire will be the person serving you directly, will know what is happening with your transaction or case, and will not simply delegate the matter to someone that you never hear from or see.
We strive to make the result of this philosophy fast, efficient, and high-quality legal services for our clients. Under this model we work to grow fine lawyers as associates, and make sure their areas of expertise -- and lower cost -- are best utilized. Our goal at McEwen Gisvold LLP is to meet our clients' high expectations for superior legal counsel, responsive service, and most importantly, effective results.
