Description of Seigfreid , Bingham , Levy , Selzer & Gee , P.C.
The mission of Seigfreid Bingham is to provide timely, quality, cost effective legal services and related business counseling in a manner that achieves personal and professional satisfaction for our clients and all who work at our firm. We accomplish this by:Recruiting and retaining talented, ethical and personable lawyers and staff who embrace our mission. Mentoring and training lawyers and staff. Forming partner relationships with our clients. Maintaining a culture that ensures personal and professional growth, integrity and caring for each other. We disprove the notion that you have to be a large law firm to have "large firm" clients. The common wisdom in the legal community in recent years has been that in order to succeed, a law firm must either become a "boutique", that is, a small firm with a highly specialized niche, or merge until it becomes large enough for "large firm" clients. Neither alternative had much appeal for us. We wanted to remain a steadily growing "medium size" law firm and still attract the type of clients that historically are considered "large firm" clients. We've done exactly that. A number of years ago, the Kansas City Business Journal reported that only one Kansas City law firm represents more of this area's fifty largest companies than we do. We had established, according to the Business Journal, a "formidable niche" in the Kansas City legal community. How has a law firm with less than 50 attorneys been able to establish such a client base through a tumultuous decade of legal change?
