A Message from our CEO

The success of our firm is deeply rooted in our clients, colleagues and communities.

Welcome to Eckert Seamans. Throughout the years, our firm has grown strategically in scope, footprint, and reach. Our focus has never wavered from providing our clients with exceptional judgment, service, and value, which are the standards by which we evaluate our own performance each and every day. Clients trust us to help them capitalize on their most promising opportunities and find solutions to their most pressing problems because that is what we do best. We never take this trust for granted—we work hard to prove each and every day that your confidence in us is well placed and that we add value to your business.

At Eckert Seamans, we believe in a “one firm” principle, which allows us to bring the right mix of firm-wide skills and local-market presence to deliver the legal advice necessary to help our clients achieve their goals.  In our most successful relationships, our involvement has extended well beyond the law. We have become a part of our clients’ risk and project management teams, helping plan the strategies necessary to achieve their objectives and assisting in implementing their strategic plans successfully and cost-effectively. Partnering with our clients in this way — learning about their businesses and operations, and by extension, the dynamics that impact their industries—is a crucial component of our collaborative client service philosophy, which drives everything we do at Eckert Seamans and is a core element of our value we deliver through our culture.

Collaboration, value, and community – reoccurring themes you may notice throughout the website – are the three pillars on which our exceptional client service stands. All of our clients receive the attention of highly skilled and committed attorneys through our coordinated, multi-disciplinary team approach. This collaboration allows us to help our clients achieve their goals in the most effective and efficient manner possible, making Eckert Seamans one of the best values in today’s legal landscape. In our communities, we are honored to donate our time and resources to hundreds of organizations that help make life better for those in need.

Thank you for visiting with us.


The Executive Committee is responsible for our strategy, the development of our competitive position, our relationship with clients, business planning, and financial management.
