Our platform’s multidisciplinary professionals represent clients throughout the Mid-Atlantic region and across the country from 15 offices in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, New York City, Virginia, Texas and South Carolina.
Stevens & Lee and its platform bring diverse experience, educational backgrounds and industry expertise to provide a full range of professional services to our clients. Driven by excellence, anticipation and innovation, we focus on understanding our clients’ strengths and limitations to uncover opportunities or discover potential threats. Our knowledge of our clients’ businesses and the industries in which they compete, along with our multidisciplinary platform, set us apart from other firms.
Our vertically integrated industry groups are comprised of legal, financial and accounting professionals, among others. The industries we serve include financial institutions, insurance, health care, state and local government, gaming, technology, telecommunications, life sciences, private equity, energy and higher education. We also serve a wide range of commercial and industrial clients, as well as clients operating in the services industry.
In addition, our platform’s lawyer and non-lawyer professionals have experiential, occupational and educational diversity. For example, we have on staff several former banking executives, including a former CEO and a CFO; former hospital Chairmen and CEOs, a CFO and other senior executives; a licensed professional geologist; and numerous other industry executive professionals. We also have a number of lawyer and non-lawyer MBAs and CPAs on staff. We believe this collection of experience helps us to analyze clients’ situations more accurately and devise and deliver solutions more effectively. It also gives us greater insight into the industries we serve by having at one time sat on the other side of the desk.
Our clients and their needs are our focus. Client responsiveness with an emphasis on work quality is instilled in all of our professionals. We spend considerable time getting to know our clients and the industries in which they compete so we can deal with legal issues from our clients’ economic perspectives and help them find ways to increase their revenues or reduce their expenses. We recognize – and never do we forget – that we provide a service and that our success in an increasingly competitive market is determined by the delicate but direct relationship between the value we add and the price we charge.
