Seattle-based business law firm Stokes Lawrence announced that it will welcome nine attorneys from the Mills Meyers Swartling firm on September 1, which includes IADC member Caryn Jorgensen.
After September 1, Mills Meyers Swartling will no longer be offering legal services. The attorneys joining Stokes Lawrence will be part of the firm’s highly regarded litigation and business practices.
The addition of the Mills Meyers Swartling attorneys will deepen the bench of Stokes Lawrence’s legal team, offering it the ability to enhance its exceptional client service. In addition, several of the Mills Meyers Swartling attorneys are seasoned aviation attorneys, which will allow Stokes Lawrence to broaden its capabilities for aviation industry clients.
To Mills Meyers Swartling, Stokes Lawrence is an ideal platform for serving the civil litigation and corporate law boutique’s roster of clients, which includes airlines, aircraft and auto manufacturers, major agricultural operations, real estate owners and businesses throughout the Pacific Northwest.
The match is notable in that both firms are led by female managing shareholders. With the addition of Caryn Jorgensen as shareholder, Stokes Lawrence will become 50% women-owned, which is unusual for a firm of this size.
