Firm growth continues momentum with 128 hires in 2018

 

Am Law 100 firm Polsinelli is pleased to announce the election of 17 attorneys to shareholder, effective today. The new shareholders were elected based on their superior client service and dedicated legal commitment.

 

The new shareholders span eight Polsinelli offices and more than 10 practices.

 

“It takes time, dedication and hard work to become a shareholder at our firm,” said Polsinelli Chairman and CEO Russ Welsh. “This group of attorneys is most deserving of this milestone in their legal careers, and we look forward to supporting them as they ascend to leaders in the legal community.”

 

The election of the 17 new shareholders concludes a year of significant growth for the firm, which added 128 new hires in 2018. Earlier this year, Polsinelli opened its newest office in Seattle, an important geographical expansion to its West Coast footprint, which includes existing offices in San Francisco, Silicon Valley and Los Angeles.

 

On Nov. 5, 21 new associates join Polsinelli to support clients coast-to-coast, a result of increased client needs and focus. The new associates are located in 10 different offices and 12 practice areas.

 

With a total of 46 service areas spanning nine divisions and six departments, Polsinelli continues expansion in alignment with industry demand and the changing legal landscape. Today, Polsinelli has 830 attorneys across 21 offices.
