Frost Brown Todd, a law firm with over 475 lawyers across its seven-state footprint, offers a deep, talented roster of legal professionals.  Committed to our clients, we leverage technical, industry and legal knowledge and hands-on experience to serve a diverse client base, from global multinationals to small, entrepreneurial companies. Our client teams integrate that powerful network of legal talent and business experience to provide innovative and comprehensive services across our regional platform.

Our law firm focuses on delivering to clients what they report needing the most: sound legal counsel, responsive service, concise communication and an eye toward being as efficient in our representation as possible. We favor a lean staffing model in which the likely needs of a project are considered at the outset. Many of our projects are handled by a single lawyer, who becomes intimately familiar with the facts and laws relevant to the project. This approach reduces costs and avoids potential for duplicative work. In some projects, a threshold staffing assessment indicates that more than one attorney will be needed and a team of lawyers must be assembled. Our team includes qualified associates, paralegals and project assistants who can capably handle work requiring different levels of expertise. All matters are overseen by the relationship attorney or team leader to ensure the highest standards of quality and strict adherence to technical requirements.    http://www.frostbrowntodd.com
