What's it like to work with Polsinelli?

Our attorneys strive to build true partnerships with the firm’s clients. The new Polsinelli Firm video shares insights about our culture and our commitment to addressing our clients’ challenges.


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 Nashville and Raleigh. The addition of 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.  With our firm’s concentration of presence in lower-overhead markets, we are able to offer more comprehensive services than local or regional firms and more competitive overall cost than national firms concentrated  in higher cost markets.

Our experience is organized logically around our clients' needs.
