Our firm is a premier corporate and business transactions advisor to middle-market public traded and privately held companies throughout the nation.

  • Providing prompt and responsive service
  • Delivering superior services at a reasonable cost

At Scudder Law Firm, we are committed to providing a challenging and rewarding career experience. We view our people as the future of the organization and not as assets to be churned.

We also promote early client contact, continuing legal education, and exposure to client-industry events. Our normal partnership track for associates is six full calendar years.

Our compensation philosophy is linked to our business philosophy. We believe we succeed by attracting and retaining the best possible personnel. A great team allows us to provide the proactive, high-quality service required by our nationwide clients for their sophisticated business transactions.
