Established in 1990, Smith Knowles provides transactional and litigation counseling, services and representation to businesses and to individuals. We have developed the resources and experience necessary to effectively provide legal services in general litigation, real estate-construction, commercial transactions, and estates. Our litigation and trial attorneys represent business clients in all complex matters with a focus on commercial real estate and construction; zoning, land use and development; insurance defense; estates; and employment and labor disputes. Our team of business transaction attorneys advises clients in these areas, as well as business formation and structure; property acquisition and financing; and estate and asset protection and succession planning.
Smith Knowles takes a "partnership" approach to representing its clients. We know and understand our clients' business and goals.
We are creative in our search for a solution to the client's problems. We do not use several layers of attorneys on a single case, however, our litigation and business transaction teams draw from each other's expertise and experience to meet our clients' needs. Our use of technology allows us to maximize our effectiveness, while minimizing the cost to the client. Internet availability, integrated network communications, document management, remote access, electronic legal research, scheduling and word processing systems enable us to provide effective and efficient service to all our clients. Full time paralegals and other legal assistants provide excellent and cost-effective support services to our attorneys.
