Ballard Spahr entered the Phoenix market in August 2006 with an office established by two of the city's leading corporate attorneys. Today, the office has more than 30 attorneys who practice in the transactional, public finance, intellectual property, litigation, employment, real estate, and environmental areas.
Our Phoenix attorneys represent clients in M&A and securities transactions; commercial bankruptcy; public finance transactions, including public-private partnerships; real estate development and leasing; and land use. Litigators handle a range of commercial disputes, including employment and environmental and natural resource matters. We have an Indian law practice and provide full intellectual property counseling and litigation services. The combination of on-the-ground legal talent and national resources positions our Phoenix office as a key driver of Ballard Spahr's growth in the Southwest.
At Ballard Spahr, we believe our clients are best served by innovative solutions that spring from varied viewpoints and perspectives. And we are committed to creating a vibrant community where people of all backgrounds can thrive. Our Phoenix office has one of the highest percentages of women partners and minority associates in the area. The office participates in Maricopa County Bar Association’s annual Diversity Legal Writing Program and is a sponsor of the Arizona Foundation for Women event and the Arizona State Bar Leadership Institute.
Pro bono service is a hallmark of the firm, and the Phoenix attorneys devote numerous hours to pro bono cases every year. Attorneys and staff in Phoenix support a number of worthy causes, including voter rights and assistance for the homeless.
