Who We Are
Seyferth Blumenthal & Harris is unique to Kansas City. Strategically placed, we are a “small” law firm focusing on the defense of companies large and small, from coast to coast, and we do so with unparalleled expertise.
SBH was founded by BigLaw refugees. We bring training, knowledge, and experience gained from some of the country’s largest law firms but have embraced an entrepreneurial alternative to the status quo: thinking creatively, acting decisively, and providing trusted counsel to clients.
Other firms talk about diversity initiatives. We don’t talk about diversity. We have diversity. As evidenced by our track record and recognition, we recognize the unique edge our diversity gives us.
The Seyferth Blumenthal & Harris philosophy is based on the premise that clients deserve – and need – experienced and qualified lawyers handling all facets of their litigation matters, without paying abusive amounts for such service.
Seyferth Blumenthal & Harris’ lawyers don’t measure success by the hours we bill to our clients. The firm’s success and our lawyers’ compensation are based on results we obtain as a team. There are no bonuses based solely on hours billed. We measure our success by the results we deliver to our clients.
In BigLaw firms, teams are put together based on title and rank within the firm. We don’t assign work-based titles. We assign work based on which lawyer has the best skills to handle each particular situation. We encourage collaboration, rather than considering it a weakness. Some of our lawyers are better “on their feet” in a courtroom than others. Some of our lawyers are better researchers and writers. We identify each lawyer’s strengths and weaknesses and work as a team to bring the best possible approach to representing our clients’ interests.
