In 1951, a tax-law specialty firm opened its doors in downtown Des Moines, Iowa. Its modest size hid lofty ambitions: to help its clients build on a strong foundation, and to put businesses from Iowa, the Midwest and around the country on a powerful footing for growth and competitive success.
Today those ambitions continue to act as our compass. BrownWinick has grown to become one of the region's preeminent business-focused law firms, boasting a broad range of legal services and an impressive client list that includes both large, well-known corporations and energetic start-ups.
As BrownWinick has grown, the firm's areas of practice have also grown to better serve the varied and ever-changing needs of our clients in a rapidly evolving regulatory and business environment.
BrownWinick's firm commitment to business makes us more than a source of sound, skilled legal counsel. It makes us a powerful strategic partner, one with the vision, perspective and commitment to position your business for the challenges you face today — and on the road ahead.
