Our Philosophy in Action
Our firm was founded in 1981 to grow a "Culture of Performance" at the heart of which is our client-centric focus. We have responded to our clients request to consistently deliver on and surpass their expectations by providing:
- Ready access to senior, highly experienced attorneys who are responsive and attentive to their needs
- Efficient staffing with appropriate levels of support
- Superior work product
- Results that involve a proactive, holistic and pragmatic approach to problem-solving
We deliver because every member of our firm — partners, associates and support staff alike — takes responsibility for client satisfaction and success. That means the breadth of the firm’s expertise is available to clients, no matter which practice groups they may be working with directly.
Our Culture of Performance also is about delivering the best talent and work product in a strategic manner. We embrace a work ethic that does not begin and end with the billable hour, but rather is rooted in our mission to serve our clients not only as legal counsel but also as business advisors. By delivering our exemplary services in a client-focused manner, we have achieved sustainable growth and success — a testimony to the Culture of Performance that thrives here at the firm.
Partnerships That Are Strategic and Proactive
Cohen & Grigsby’s attorneys also serve as trusted business advisors. We make it our business to get to know your business. We proactively identify potential obstacles before they become problems and potential opportunities to enhance your bottom line. We are focused on strategic ways that will keep you on a path to profitability and viability.
Our attorneys approach each engagement with an eye toward staffing a matter only as necessary to accomplish established objectives. This helps drive a better bottom line for our clients and for the firm.

In a global economy, you need attorneys who can reach beyond borders, who have the experience to tackle the complicated issues that you will encounter in the marketplace. Cohen & Grigsby’s attorneys collectively maintain a broad domestic and international portfolio, and we bring these considerable resources to bear for you.
A meaningful advantage to our clients is that we have significantly limited our overhead and other costs related to operations. We pass on that value to our clients.
